Shania is a Canadian fabric (and pattern) designer, and lives right here in BC. In fact, I met her today when I went to The Cloth Shop at Granville Island today, looking for some more black Moda fabric.

I did not know we have Canadian batik fabrics and WOW there's some gorgeous stuff!!! I had to hold myself back, to save some stuff to buy on Saturday, when lelliebunny and her DHbunny come up to shop and visit.


Since Kee (B750; designated quilter machine) has been a good boy, I decided to snag a couple prezzies for him, what with the 30% off sale today...AND I got to meet Shania and she autographed one of her patterns for Kee. (Awww!)

While Kee was napping...



I took a couple pics of his prezzies, before he wakes up and tears into everything.

These are all by Shania;

Applique and quilting, and being a BC-Baby, of course I just LOVE this!



And some of her GemSquares packs...


This is so pretty, a batik with birdies, for a table runner, so sorry for the crappy pic. I'll do good ones after Kee finishes it.



DRAGONFLIES!!!


And the pattern for this kit:

Most of all, I heart Woo (HimmyCat). Until we meet again, my beautiful little boy. I love you.

Forgot to mention, there are Canada-specific Bali Pops, such as Canadian Rockies and Coast to Coast...but Granville Island now has their very own Bali Pops! The fabrics are GORGEOUS, but I decided that was one of the items I would leave for Saturday's shopping spree.

VERY pretty fabrics!

I love the whale, that one is going to be awesome!

I am working with batiks now and they are LOVELY fabrics to work with.

I admire your restraint- saving some shopping for the weekend!

Let us know what Kee thinks when he wakes up from his nap

I hope they will...support Canada and all that!

The whale tales is magnificent! I saw the display piece and stopped dead. I just saw the instructions and huge pile of the different fabrics to do this piece...and about fell over, lol!

This reminds me of one of those "100,000 pieces" puzzles. It is going to be so much fun, and I think very relaxing!!! I plan to set up my long board alongside my bed, so after work next week I can come home, perch on the bed, and cut and fuse and place pieces onto a clear teflon appliqué pressing sheet.

It's all raw-edge applique with FMQ. Love love love this pattern and fabrics!

Wow, so pretty, and local! Thank you for the pictures and name. And for reminding me how fun and close Granville Island is. I haven't visited for awhile, and now I have a really good reason.

Let me know when you next come up, and we can meet. Not to enable each other or anything, of course.
