Doreen and I took off on Saturday morning and did a five store shop hop. First on our list was That'll Do Quilting & Gifts.

Calgary Stampede 2012

100 Year Celebration Quilt 
1912 to 2012

Patsy S. was the 1967 Stampede Queen and she asked me to help her design and sew a block for the 100 year quilt.

We used her hat with the crown on it and her Queen's alumni pin to be the base of our design.

You were required to use the cream colour as our background and the red, green, blue, grey and yellow in your design.

We used them to hint at the Centennial maple leaf.


I entered a felted knitted purse into the knitting section of the fair and took 2nd place.
