The group blog of twelve quiltmakers and textile artists scattered around the world in 8 countries and across four continents. Our aim is to create a small quilt every three months.
The theme is chosen by the members in turn.

When the topic came up 3 months ago this is exactly what I thought of. Perhaps a bit generic but this is our lake, our cottage and these are chairs that my husband built. Life has been very good to us and this isn't exactly a culmination as there is so very much more to do but it does represent a nice place that we are at, physically and metaphorically. And it really is lovely to sit out there and enjoy. The lake is called Lake Memphremagog which means "great expanse of water" and is south east of Montreal. We're very near the border with the USA and can row or cross-country ski up to it (but not across!) We bought the cottage when we moved back to this area and did a lot of renovations to winterize it and update its 70 year old wiring and plumbing. Because we are so far south and so near the border there is very little boat traffic, but in the winter it is like a street scene with cars, ATVs and skidoos racing up and down, and fishermen sitting perched on the upturned buckets for the whole day. oh, and we are supposed to have a creature out there called Memphre!
