Sue and Joanne are currently in Santa Clara California for the start of the Pacific International Quilt Festival. Visit us in booth 1125 for a demonstration of Mistyfuse and Sue's templates for Rotary Cut Appliqué. The show is from 10-6 Thursday thru Saturday and Sunday 10-5.
Sue Pelland Designs is excited to begin a new Certified Instructor program in innovative Rotary Cut Appliqué techniques. We are looking for a few wonderful instructors to spread our Rotary Cut Appliqué techniques in every state and around the world. The Sue Pelland Designs Certified Instructor program is designed to help each participant fully understand the many varied uses of the appliqué tools.
The Rivers Edge Convention Center was home to this years Minnesota Quilters Guild show. This magnificent quilt show is run primarily by volunteers, and is one of the best independent shows in the country. Thanks to AnnMarie Yohnk, the faculty coordinator for the show, I was asked to lecture and teach.
I hope you enjoyed a relaxing and reflective Memorial Day week! This is a photo of my Father-in-law, Joe Pelland, during World War II. I wish I had him back here today to learn about his experience in Germany, and how he ended up coming back to Montreal, Canada with a young German bride! There are so many questions I would ask my Father-in-law if he were here today. My husband was born and raised in Montreal, Where Joe and his wife Renee settled after the war. When Jeff and I were first married, we spent many weekends driving to Canada to visit relatives in Montreal and Toronto.

Rachell Rilley saw my Leaves Galore Templates in Quilter's Newsletter Magazine and has used them in some very interesting ways! I thought you might like to have today's blog post written by Rachell so you can see her amazing Fire Fighter Quilt. Enjoy! Sue Pelland
"Illuminate" is the theme for a challenge group that I belong to, consisting of 10 artists that work in various media. The previous theme had been "element" but time got away from me before I was able to explore that challenge theme. "THE FIRE WITHIN", my submission for the "illuminate" challenge addresses both themes. The element of fire is so essential to life on this earth. From the fire comes a light that can illuminate the world, removing darkness and fear.
