to sailing fame, the Bluenose II. This elegant schooner design is a
great accent piece for any lover of tall ships and for any room with
a nautical theme. The design also features Battery Point Lighthouse
at the entrance to Lunenburg Harbour, the Ovens (caves) in the background,
and Folded Fabric Stars in the borders. Quilters will work from a scaled
drawing and choose from three methods for making sails.

has taught quilting for 25 years and currently designs quilt patterns
sold through her own business in Mahone Bay or taught at various workshops
that she facilitates throughout eastern Canada, Ontario and parts west.
She has exhibited her quilts at shows in Halifax and Lunenburg County
and has made numerous one-of-a-kind commissioned pieces for personal
and commercial use and for fund-raising efforts. Anna says her greatest
enjoyment comes from seeing the "light come on" when teaching
a new idea or technique to workshop participants, whether they are beginners
or advanced quilters.
