A Quilt Show-Part 1

This past weekend, there was a Quilt Show in Midhurst, Ontario.  Usually I have a booth

there and this year was no exception.

The lighting is bad so I do apologize for that.

There were alot of applique quilts this year but I will make you wait until next week

to see those.  There are too many photos to show you all of them right now.

The Art Quilts were pretty amazing too!

And this little guy is so sweet.  I think the owner took a class with David Taylor.  This

is the outcome of all that work.

Isn’t it amazing what a person can capture in fabric?

This wallhanging is pretty cool.  I can’t remember the designer but

there is alot of hand embroidery in it.  Seems that hand embroidery is becoming

popular in the  quilting world too.

I am guessing that Mckena Ryan is the designer of this pattern.  It suits the

style of the piece.

Peggy's Cove

I love this  piece-“Peggy’s Cove.”  It reminds me of home-especially since I did grow up in Nfld.

This quilt was made using the pattern and technique used by Grace Errea.  I saw her on the

Quilt Show and want to try out her technique for making an Art Quilt.

Poppies?

Poppies?

Are these poppies?  I should have read the little note with the quilt but

being in a rush makes  you miss out on some details sometimes.

Jack In The Pulpit

This one has an interesting name indeed.

What is living by a Great Lake without seagulls to annoy you?

This is my favorite wall hanging/Art Quilt out of the whole show.  I love the

fun that the creator threw in with all the 3D embellishments on the bottom of

the piece.  There is even a fishing lure  and a seashell  included in the piece.

And last, but not least, here is a photo of my quilt that was chosen to be auctioned

off by SACA. Made me feel pretty honored that they purchased a quilt that I made.

It even hung nicely-pretty flat and not many ripples at all.

That’s all for now but I promise more photos next week.

Have a great week.

      Hi Angie, Usually, I have a booth at the Quilt Show to advertise my longarm quilting business-Stitching Impressions. This year I did sell an applique quilt-Rose Sampler. The designer is Rosemary Makham. At my booth, there are quilts for sale too but I am finding that buying a quilt is similar to buying an art piece. Alot has to do with personal preference and what colors, styles and design a person likes. Ruth

      HI Lynette, Yes, I want to make that same quilt but it will have to wait. Currently I am working on a Sue Garman applique. No new projects until this one is finished.

    SO many lovely quilts thanks so much for taking the time to share them with us. Your quilt is a credit to you so much work there, I hope they made a lot of money from it and it is helping some one. Loved the poppies and the sea art quilt. Cheers Glenda Australia.

    Thanks for sharing these pics, shows are always so difficult to photograph. Your auction quilt looks fabulous, what a great quilt for some lucky winner.

    I was headed to see your pinwheel quilt, when I saw your art beautiful art quilts. They generally aren’t my thing, but yours are amazing, they look like water colors. My favorite is the cottage on the hill, and second is peggy’s cove. Just amazingly beautiful.
