As promised, these are the last of the Canadian Quilt Show.
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.
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.
Whoever came up with this one, was thinking. We can’t forget how much
Canadians love their coffee and donuts.
The Quilts of Valor Display was interesting as well; there were lots of different
quilts to choose from.

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

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.
Another piece which I totally fell in love with. It looks like a picture, it is that
Who can forget to get the kids involved? They had their own display too.
What a great idea to use a Canadian symbol celebrating the 150 th Birthday and
turn it into a quilt.
I like these trees as well.
It amazes me how someone can turn an ordinary experience (ie. going for
a walk) into such a great art quilt.
This quilt looks like a picture. The creator did a great job!!
Hope you liked the Quilt Show and have a great week.
