A Few More Pictures…

As promised, these are the last of the Canadian Quilt Show.

Wholecloth Quilt

This wholecloth quilt was very big and interesting. It depicts a young girl riding

her horse. It ribboned as well.

I loved this squirrel pattern that was hanging in a vendor’s booth. The blue color

is what draws me in.

Trend TEx Challenge

There were alot of exhibits at the Show. The Trend Tex Challenge uses 5 fabrics and

the theme was “A Canadian Memory.” In Nfld,  “mummering” used to be a local

tradition but it has died out. Basically, people dress up and go to their friends’ houses

and  act silly while the neighbours try to guess who it is dressed up. There is also

alot of liquor involved so you can see why it was both entertaining and amusing.

Guess who?

Whoever came up with this one, was thinking.  We can’t forget how much

Canadians love their coffee and donuts.

Northcott’s Quilts of Valor Challenge

The Quilts of Valor Display was interesting as well; there were lots of different

quilts to choose from.

RCMP Quilt

How can you resist a red uniform?  And the red toque is adorable.

Centennial Quilt

It was nice to see quilts that were made for Canada’s 100th Birthday. Very

different from today.

Close Up

Embroidered Quilt

A close up of all the work in this quilt.

Modern Quilts

Modern quilts were also being displayed.

‘Sticks”

I really like this quilt. It is so simple but the color is effective.

The Fibre Art Network was also holding their own display. This piece caught

my eye.

Curvy Quilt

I also like this pattern. The quilt was made by using Sew Kind of  Wonderful’s

arc ruler.

Close Up

The quilting is terrific on this quilt. Love all the straight lines and pebbles.

Paints and stitching were used to create this watercolor effect. I think

I will have to try this technique  in the future.

Skiing

Another piece which I totally fell in love with. It looks like a picture, it is that

good.

Who can forget to get the kids involved?  They had their own display too.

Canadian Leaf

What a great idea to use a Canadian symbol celebrating the 150 th Birthday and

turn it into a quilt.

“Trees”

I like these trees as well.

“Taking a Walk”

It amazes me how someone can turn an ordinary experience (ie. going for

a walk) into such a great art quilt.

The details

This  quilt looks like a picture. The creator did a great job!!

Hope you liked the Quilt Show and have a great week.

Check out The Needle and Thread Network.
