Thanks for coming to visit Port Hope today for Sunday Stash. Port Hope is 16 hours behind Sydney, New South Wales, so I am posting this technically on Saturday so my Australian friends don’t have to wait too long for it to go live.
Port Hope is a town of about 11,000 situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario, about 1 hour east of Toronto, which is the capital of Ontario, and the biggest city in Canada, but NOT the capital of Canada. There are two major rail lines running through town, so the sound of train whistles is a common backdrop. We are in late fall, coming into winter, meaning the days are short and snow is imminent. Go here to see our current weather.
For Sunday Stash, I was inspired by Michelle at Factotum of Arts to dig out an old set of winnings (and I did have the lid on the box, so they’re not dusty). I won this lovely Lesley Grainger FQ bundle, plus panel, from the Robert Kaufman blog Swatch and Stitch over a year ago, but got totally stumped–because it’s flannel. I’ve never quilted with flannel. So, dear readers, can you offer some suggestions? Would you quilt with it? What pattern? Or make something else–maybe placemats?
