Chezzetcook is the name of a small community on the eastern shore of Nova Scotia. This is where I grew up. Over the last several years I have been travelling and living away from Nova Scotia. The further away from the ocean and my home province I got, the more I realised how important it is to me.

This blog is my little tribute to that small place that had such a big impact on my life. And now, any quilt labelled "Chezzetcook" will carry a little piece of that influence wherever it goes.

Why did a blacked out tooth seem so important to every costume?
That's me - note blacked out tooth again!
Oh right! Still wondering how to pronounce Chezzetcook? Well, I am going to teach you what the locals do - forget the "t" and add an "n", say chezzencook! Say it fast and it will come out fine.
A little more about me
Fabric. That was the beginning. What can I do to justify buying all of this fabric? Quilting was the answer. 15 or so years later I found the Modern Quilting movement and it has felt like coming home.
I live in Nova Scotia, Canada with my Husband Max and our two fur babies Penny and The Orange Cat (Orangie to his friends). By day I am a project manager in Home Care, but by night, I am at the sewing machine, seam ripper in hand (and likely a cocktail in the other), sewing away. The Maritimes has an amazing history in quilting, and I am so happy to be a small part of that tradition.
