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
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.
Even the stork has to eat.
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.
Can you find Dory?
Another stork at the bottom of the quilt.
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?
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.
Kathy is the owner of this baby crib quilt. It is very cute when you
actually open it all up.
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.
My mug rug is the second one from the top. It was the
first one I have ever made; the inspiration came from
A crocheted blanket; the pattern caught my eye.
If you need a date to the Fair, here is a handsome dude.
If the wild personality isn’t your type, here is a serious
business man for you.
Are you a fan of Batman?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for posting to TN&TN’s WIP Wednesday!
I LOVE the postcard you sent as part of Judy’s Million Mile challenge!
LOVE the fabric. And, an apron! How clever. (I’m a poor typist, Ruth. When I first attempted to type clever, I typed cleaver. How not clever! Ha ha!)
