Here are some more photos, as promised, from last week’s
Quilt Canada, in Toronto.
There seemed to be alot of modern quilts at the Show this
year. Depending on what your taste is, this could be a good
thing or not. I really like the colors in this
quilt and the piecing seems like alot of fun as well.
Orange is a color that is growing on me. It will be fun to
see if I actually make an orange quilt.
This was an interesting quilt. It is very modern looking
and its size draws you in.
Upon closer inspection, you can see that the stitching is all
done by hand, unless the maker has a Sasiko sewing machine.
Yes, there is such a thing.
Another modern quilt. It was interesting how the designer
chose the colors that she/he did. There is alot of tight
straight line stitching on this one as well.
Krista Withers quilted this quilt while another lady
made it. Krista is a longarmer that I follow and am
beginning to really like her quilting.
Again, another orange pieced quilt. An interesting layout and
designs for quilting.
As usual, it is the quilting that draws me in. I love the texture
that the quilting gives to a quilt. It brings it to life.
An interesting take on a modern circular quilt.
I love the colors in this wallhanging.
This wallhanging seemed to grab alot of attention. The
bright yellow circle stands out alot.
More machine stitching.
Here is an example of the tight, dense, straight line
quilting that seemed to be so popular in the Quilt
Show this year. I wonder what next year will bring?
I do love the colors in this piece and the stitching is
fascinating as well. Again, where does someone start
on a piece like this?
I love wholecloth quilts. The stitching and texture is
what makes the whole quilt. This must be why
longarming appeals to me so much.
Forget the piecing and go straight to the quilting and
This is Ruth Kennedy’s quilt. It is quite large and colorful.
Once again,she won a ribbon too. A very talented lady
This was an interesting quilt. When I first saw it, I
wondered “how did this person ever piece all those
Getting closer to the quilt, I noticed that the background
was all white/cream and all the black marks were drawn
onto the quilt top using a black marker or sharpie.
Wow!! That must have taken a long time to create. The stitching
is pretty cool as well. This quilt certainly stirred up alot of
Helen Fujiko won the “Best of Show” with this
wallhanging. It is extremely colorful, which I love.
A close up of her quilt.
The whole quilt judging process intrigues me.
There are still more photos to come. I will try to
wrap it up next week. Enjoy the sunshine in
