#bestnine2017 shows how 2017 was all about pink/salmon, apparently 💕🐷It was a great to be included at #quiltcon and @curatedquilts inaugural issue. Onwards and upwards for next year! I just need more time to create. #gratitude

#tbt that time I dyed caribou and seal during a public indigo dyeing demo. 💙 so much fun, and thanks to @inuk360 for the opportunity to play with some of our region's gifts!

Finally finished today after a year and a half! 'Matin' by Erin Suliak, 2017. Machine pieced, hand appliquéd, hand quilted. Thrifted, new and hand dyed fabrics. Wedge curve piecing techniques learnt from @sherrilynnwood and a new-to-me mitred corner binding. #quiltsofinstagram #handstitched #handwork

Near-midnight is clearly not an ideal time to learn a new binding technique... but fortune favours the brave! #quiltsofinstagram #dualcolour #deadlinesewing

A beaver family has taken up residence next to my workplace (pic from last week?). The humans have decided to let them stay until spring. I wonder if we'll have many birch or poplar trees left by then... #coexistence #busybeaver #ecosystems

These would be lovely for block printing if they weren't also so delicious #foodart #wintersquash

My youngest wanted me to share the scarecrow he made. The toy bun / dinner roll was a nice decorative touch. #toysculpture #kidart #thatspartofthecarrotcostume

Piecing complete! Hopefully tonight I can put together the back and start strategizing on quilting. Should this be a submission for QuiltCon? I have several flimsies to finish and choose from... #thriftedfabric #improvpiecing #quiltsofinstagram
