Inspiration for Mill Town

The inspiration for my block initially was a stenciled wall at a Vancouver restaurant. At first glance, it looks like an intricate tile pattern, but closer inspection reveals that it is painted. As I was drafting the block and playing with rotating the rectangular elements, I was thinking about spinning cogs. Even though the design isn't circular, the waterwheels on the sides of historic mills throughout southern Ontario came to mind. When I was growing up in Belleville, Oakville and Ottawa, my family often took Sunday drives to scenic small towns. Many have beautiful ivy-covered stone millhouses with their waterwheels still attached - in fact my husband and I spent our wedding night in the gorgeous Millcroft Inn near Orangeville. I've lived in Vancouver for 30 years and love the West Coast, but I do miss the small towns of Southern Ontario in summertime.

Canadian Compass

Sherri learned to love sewing at a young age. When her oldest was born, this love got a bit out of control, in a good way! She has been writing tutorials and blogging at Thread Riding Hood, since 2012 and can’t imagine doing anything else. Sherri writes from Ontario, Canada and loves to promote all things Canadian. She loves working from home alongside her husband, and being able to greet her two daughters when they get home from school. When she’s not sewing, she’s likely reading a novel and snacking on wavy chips and dip!

Inspiration for Canadian Compass

Canada reminds me of forests, road-trips, and lots of land. Thoughts of exploring our amazing country inspired this stylized compass-themed block.
