The Singing Quilter



We had The Singing Quilter Cathy Miller and her husband John at our guild meeting last night. What a wonderful evening of quilty entertainment! I laughed a lot about the crazy things that we quilters do!


From :Penguin Foundation

I liked the song about the knitted sweaters for penguins! Who knew it was a real thing?!? (click here to read about it)  And you can hear a version of this song (click here) performed by the songwriter James Gordon, who happens to be running in the current provincial election, and who dropped by the meeting to hear Cathy sing his song!

Check out this YouTube video of Cathy singing "You Can Quilt That Out". The long arm quilters in our group especially loved that one!



And now, I am heading off to Quilt Canada. I am so excited but I'll tell you that I have agonized over the class supply lists. I hope I have everything I will need. If you see me at Quilt Canada, please say 'hi', since I'm always preoccupied and a little overwhelmed at these events and won't notice anything but quilts!

We had Cathy perform at our guild quilt show a few years ago. She is so funny and the lyrics are so clever(and true!). I'm looking forward to seeing photos of the show.

My husband walked in while I was listening to the video and said "who sings about quilts"? LOL He really was not very surprised. :)

Hilarious!!! I'd heard the song before, but it is always fun to hear it again :)

Is Cathy Canadian too? How fun for your Guild. I used that song for a Slideshow I did of the Pictures I took at Sisters one year. Gotta find it and watch it again. what does the 'Delagate' mean on your name tag? Do you have an election at the Quilt Canada? Have a great time!!
