As promised, here are more pictures of the Canadian Quilt Show, that
occurred several weeks ago. Once again, you may need a beverage
to keep you company.
Elizabeth Dillinger created this piece and won an award for
her Zentangles. She is located out of Oshawa, I think. A very
colorful piece that is all stitched with thread.
Kerry Burke’s Quilt
Kerry Burke created this piece and Rose Bell quilted it for her. Both are
very talented and it won 1st place in the Hand Applique Category. Congrats
to both of you.
I am not sure who made this piece but it is interesting and thought
The Modern Quilt Movement is beginning to grow on me. I really
like the circles on this piece and the straight line quilting.
It is nice to see close ups of the piece so here are several for you.
Improvisational piecing adds another dimension to the piece too.
It was interesting at the Show because I ended up talking to a
stranger about design and composition. Even with modern
quilts, there needs to be both of these. What do you think?
I love this piece!! The colors, the details and the composition.
Here are several close ups as well. I can’t believe that the creator
actually zigzagged stitched around each piece. It does clean up the
piece but that would drive me crazy!!
Again, look at the colors. Gorgeous!
This white piece draws me in because I love straight lines. I guess
all those years of longarm quilting is catching up with me.
The calming lines also appeals to me here as well.
On to a more traditional quilt. I would guess that Judy Niemeyer
created this pattern. Theses quilts are very time intensive to create
but well worth the effort.
More modern pieces.
Dorothy Fu created this piece and it won an award too. Not quite sure for
what category but I am sure that Dorothy will be thrilled.
There is a Quilt Shop in Niagara Falls, called the Quilting Bee and the female
owner, Kelly Corfe, is a longarm quilter as well. She quilted this piece below and it
is interesting up close.
Here you can see a tiger’s face in the fabric and Kelly quilted around it.
I think that this is either Tula Pink or Kaffe Fassett fabric in this quilt.
There were lots of modern pieces at the Show. It does make you
wonder how someone designs each piece or comes up with the
idea. I need to have a picture to work from.
It was quite interesting and fun to look at and examine.
This quilt below was quite stunning. Colette Dumont made it, is from
An embroidered Quilt
This quilt won an award as well. I have no idea how she came up with the idea
and I heard that she quilted it on her domestic machine too. Wow!!
I wouldn’t want to try that.
There is alot of embroidery on this piece.
More close ups. The pictures do not do it justice at all.
Again, all the colors are embroidered. And there are a ton of crystals on it too.
I love the purple elephant quilt. Alot of pieces in this pattern.
Another traditional quilt.
The back of this quilt is interesting too and shows off all the work on the front.
Best of Show Quilt
Colette Dumont also created this “Best of Show” Quilt. This one is smaller
than the other one but it is just as impressive.
Look at all the detail.
Once again, all the color is created from embroidery. She did a fantastic
The center of the quilt and the back of the quilt.
I also like this piece below. It looks Middle Eastern in the look and
feel. I don’t think that it won any awards, which is too bad because
there is alot of work and detail in this piece.
A close up of the piece.
This piece below also won an award. It is kind of a mix
between a hummingbird and a butterfly. It is an
interesting piece for sure.
Hope you enjoyed the Show and I think I have more pictures
for one more week. Have a great week.
