Q&A with CanadianQuilter

Betsy0 asked:
I did a counted cross stitch design by the same artist. There were several native ladies in the same flowing dresses shopping for fabric while a few children played among the bolts. Barbara Lavallee is a wonderful illustrator. I enjoyed your quilt.
CanadianQuilter answered:
Thanks Betsy. I love Barbara's work. In addition to the quilt pattern, I also bought a print which is framed and hanging in my living room. It's called Mittens and Mukluks. I love her naive and happy style.
RosemarieW asked:
Very nice work on the appliqu - lovely! Have done two other patterns of Barbara's - great sentiment. If you want to do more of her patterns they are available at; this is a fabulous site for patterns and fabric.
CanadianQuilter answered:
Thanks for the tip Rosemarie. I'll check out the site right away!

Simply beautiful. Reminds me of Newfoundland. Always see laundry flying in the breeze.

This is such a clever use of double entendre. Having been three sheets to wind before, I love the subtelty. The shadow is so clever....
CanadianQuilter answered:
Hi Heidi, Must give credit for the name to the artist of the original print - Barbara Lavallee. Look her up online - her work is adorable.
