I haven’t done a post for a while because it has been a busy time here at Little Boxes HQ!  New contributions to the Tombola at Festival of Quilts continue to arrive daily.  I am sure that the person delivering the post wonders what on earth is going on!  So, many thanks to the considerable number of you who are working hard to make the Tombola a success.  We appreciate all your efforts.

In the meantime, I have been to Quilt Canada which was an amazing experience.  Very Canadian and a little different from quilt shows here.  More about that in a future edition of The Quilter.  While there, I saw some more patterns:  these are commercials patterns but you might want to have a look at these interesting websites for ideas, or, indeed, purchase a pattern – I have permission from the designers to post these links here.  One is Fabric Buckets by Kaya Joy Designs: https://shop.kayajoydesigns.com/product/fabric-buckets-pattern-variable-sizes/

And the second one is Storage Solutions – Bucket Bags by Brenda.  More at https://shop.amongbrendasquilts.com/products/pattern-storage-solutions-bucket-bags

So, there are lots of patterns and ideas to tempt you into a final push before Festival of Quilts.  You can bring contributions directly to us there, rather than posting them.  We know that people are having fun making these so why not give some a go?!  Thank you, as always.
