I have the worst “Deadline to Finish” ratio in the entire quilting world. I am still working on the Hearts and More book, and it has been at least 18 months in the making. While writing the book, I have neglected my blog so today, I’m going to walk you though MY creative writing process. Emphasis on “creative”, and not so much on “writing”!
Sue Pelland Designs would like to wish you a very happy and peaceful Thanksgiving. We hope you enjoy a day filled with Family and Friends before the rush of the Christmas Season begins. After Thanksgiving day, we will celebrate the season with a 15% discount on all products in our website shop through Cyber Monday, November 30th. Sue will be away for the holiday weekend, but will begin shipping out orders on Monday, so please allow a little extra time for delivery.
The best thing about being me is getting to go to work every day and meet other quilters. This upcoming month gives us so many opportunities to do just that!
Teaching for quilt guilds is one of the best parts of my job. I have belonged to only three guilds in my 35 years of quilting, but each of them feels just like a family reunion when I visit. When I teach at your guild, I immediately feel like you have adopted me as a honorary “sister”. I love it when I hear you all laughing and joking in the way Quilting Sisters do when they get together.

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.
