The Barrie Fair

The Barrie Fair was in full swing last week. Here are some shots

of some of the quilts  and some art that were there.

Phyllis created this beauty using the Row By Row Experience.

For those of you who don’t know what that is all about, read on.

Jan Lutz, of Row By Row Experience created this when she

noticed that quilters would travel to the far ends of the earth

to collect fabric.

She enlisted several local Quilt Shops to participate and then it went

viral. Many more Quilt Shops jumped on board so that presently,it is an

international phenonemena.

If you go into participating Quilt Shop during June  21st- September 1st,

you can pick up a free pattern of the current year’s theme or you can

buy the kit; whichever you prefer.

How can you not resist the little fish in this block?

The lily pads are actually 3D.

The otter is really dimensional, I love the batiks

in this block.

Cowboy boots.

Have you guessed the theme of this Row By Row Quilt yet?

If you guessed H20, you are correct. Water was the theme

of last year’s Row By Row Experience.

Dresden Plates seem to be making a come back this year. Karen

made this lovely quilt.

Can you see the horse and buggy? What about the quilts

hanging on the clothesline?

Birdhouses wallhanging

This wallhanging is certainly reminds one of

what summer is all about.

Phyllis  made this very time intensive quilt.

Karen  made this Snowman Quilt. It is quite interesting

in that she colored all the blocks with crayons.

A baby quilt

Kathy is the owner of this baby crib quilt. It is very cute when you

actually open it all up.

Pumpkin table runner

I made this table runner. I didn’t use any batting

in the middle because I don’t want any glasses to

tip over if they are laid on top of it.

SONY DSC

Mug rugs

My mug rug is the second one from the top. It was the

first one I have ever made; the inspiration came from

Pinterest.

A crocheted blanket; the pattern caught my eye.

If you need a date to the Fair,  here is a handsome dude.

Scarecrows at the Fair

If the wild personality isn’t your type, here is a serious

business man for you.

Don’t you love the socks?

A lady looking for a date as well.

There were also some amazing artist’s drawings at the

Fair as well. A young 18 year old drew this picture.

DSC06513_2

The same young lady drew this picture as well. Isn’t she

talented? Please ask permission to use these pictures as

they are not mine.

And when the Fair is over, you can have your date-ah, ditch

the date and drive yourself home in this beauty. I would have

loved to have taken this for a spin.

My dream car

College Quilt

I also managed to make my son a quilt for College

It is a bit modern looking but I began to like it more

after the quilting was completed.

DSC06546_2

The straight lines are one of my favorites right

now. I even managed to stitch in different widths

of lines, just to add some interest to the top.

DSC06541_2

The backing was a plaid. I used one of my wool

blankets for the batting because the kids  don’t

like the scratchiness of wool so it is being

used somewhere else and they will never know.

This week is ending on a really postive note. Over

at The Needle and Thread Network, I am being

featured as their guest this week, so check it out.

It’s a Canadian website dedicated to all those

Canadian Artisans out there.

Have a great week!

    Beautiful quilts. Phyllis’ is beautiful. The detail….

    “College Quilt” is striking. Fitting for a young man heading off for post-secondary schooling.
