Exciting News!


Well I am excited anyway.............you see, in May of 2011, The Canadian Quilters Association will bring Quilt Ontario here to London. When a call went out for a logo design, I decided to give it a whirl. It was announced last week that my design had been chosen. The call for entry requested a simple ink sketch to be submitted. Once the design had been chosen it was then sent to CQA who will now work their magic transforming this into something terrific (well I hope so, because it does need a little tweaking for sure) I am not sure how well you will be able to see this so I have also put up the design with the background darkened so the details show a bit better
For those of you unfamiliar with this area, London is known as the "Forest City" so I wanted to incorporate a tree with quilt patterns, designs, some flying geese (we have a lot of those too) and the broken lines are to represent stitching.
You can read more about it here and see the proposed colour combination that the London Organizing Committee chose. I can hardly wait to see the finished artwork.




......and of course there is yet another doodle. This week's word is Flame. Since Canada is hosting the Winter Olympics beginning very soon my response to the word flame was this torch. The Olympic torch will actually be here in town in 10 short days.

Congratulations on your design being chosen! It is beautiful, and since I love trees and intricate root systems, it certainly speaks to me! (also the torch!)
Hope that they do justice to your work---it is lovely as is and would quilt up nicely!
