The Liebster Award is a pass-it-along kind of thing. Truth serum time: I do not do chain letters. No send-your-favourite-recipe email chains either. Or tea towels to the first name on the list below, move my name up and add yours to the bottom kind of things. I think it is due to the utter disappointment of post card chains that I participated in when I was an enthusiastic penpal-er in my early teens. The promise of 650 postcards from around the world never materialized, no matter how dutifully I sent off 5 postcards with pretty photos of the Rideau Canal and the Parliament Buildings (I lived in Ottawa at the time).

So, I'm just gonna tell you about Nova. She has the prettiest name ever and her work at A Cuppa and a Catch Up is so original and always inspiring. I can't believe she doesn't have a zillion followers. I first found her blog after coming across her redwork project on Flickr.

Her entire redwork quilt top is now complete and you HAVE to see it!!! Nova is also a part of the incredible design team at Fat Quarterly (and incidently, Issue 4 has just published and it is seriously GREAT - all about working with solids!).
Nova's latest project is to run a quiltalong for Denyse Schmidt's Single Girl quilt pattern with Katy and Megan. Nova has made two of these quilts already and they are divine.
Go on, pay her a little visit!
