Quilt Canada 2008

I'm back from the Rock! Quilt Canada 2008 was held last week in St. John's, Newfoundland. St. John's is the oldest city in Canada, located on the most eastern point of our country. Like many others who attended the conference, I had never been to Newfoundland and was really excited to see this historic and scenic place.

The following photos were taken at dusk in very windy conditions, so the photos are all a little blurry...

The Signal Hill tower, site of the first transatlantic wireless signal by Marconi in 1901.

Me and an iceberg. We attended a lecture at the Johnson Geo Centre given by an iceberg scientist, then trekked up the hill to see one in the bay.

St. John's harbour

Tomorrow I'll post some photos from my little spot in the Country Concessions booth in the Merchant's Mall at Quilt Canada 2008.
