Here are more pictures from a local Quilt Show, that happened in September.
Once again, I warn you that there are alot of photos, so you may want to
grab a hot beverage, sit back, relax and enjoy the Show.
I love the colors and straight lines of this quilt.
A Sew Kind of Wonderful ruler was used to create this quilt. I love the pattern and quilting of this
Kerry Burke is a local lady who is quite the accomplished appliquer. Whatever she touches
seems to turn into gold. This quilt just won at Quilt Canada, 2018. Congrats Kerry!
Another local lady, Rose is also an accomplished longarmer. She quilted this for Kerry and did
and did a fantastic job. Congrats Rose!
I love the pebbles and swags stitched onto the quilt.
Brenda is also a very accomplished appliquer and piecer as well. It seems that she also
has a very good eye for color. Love, love. love the flowers here.
It is nice to see close ups of the pieces.
I think this is a Mary Jane Quilt. Look at all those blocks and how tiny they are.
Someone has alot of patience as well as skill at piecing.
The individual blocks are really quite outstanding.
I am wondering if Shiva Paintsticks were used to add some color to the Maple Leaves?
This is a tribute to Vimy Ridge, created by Helen.
The embroidered flowers are quite spectacular. Well done, Helen!
I love the colors of this piece too.
Look at all that texture! I have a similar panel that I want to quilt but we will have to
wait and see how long that takes me to get to it.
There were also rug hookers at the Show and here is a sample of what they have been
working on this past year. They also made pieces that reflect Mary Jane Quilts only hooked
A very modern piece.
I love snowmen and this piece looks like a lot of fun to make.
The skates had actual laces attached to them. And don’t overlook those buttons either.
These cottages look like alot of fun as well. Could use one right about now.
Donna quilted this quilt but I am unsure if she made it.
I really love the quilting on this piece, especially in the black center area.
Look at all that color! It definitely must be Kaffe Fassett fabric.
I hope that the creators of these quilts do not mind me labelling their quilts. If so, please
forgive me. I didn’t take shots of the labels for each quilt as I went through the Show.
Look at all those pieces and how well it was executed!! Wow! This Sue Garman Quilt is
not for the faint of heart. Well done!
A very pretty vintage butterfly quilt and it is hand quilted too. Wow!!
Once again, embroidered quilts are making quite a mark in the quilting world.
I love the look of the Drunkard’s Path Quilts. I have never made one but maybe it is time.
I don’t know the name of this block but if anyone does, feel free to let me know what it is.
I think that this pattern is a Kathy McNeil Quilt. She is winning alot of prizes with
her quilts that depict the Alphabet. So cute too.
I love the colors of this quilt! Wow! I can’t imagine how many hours went into making this
quilt. And each piece is a hexie too. And then, to further complicate matters, each one has to
go into a specific spot. Wow!
A close up of the actual quilt. I think that I would be pulling out my hair when the placements
for all the pieces were to be done.
How can you go wrong with Maple Leaves?
I know that this isn’t the correct name so someone enlighten me. The colors are
really spectacular , reminds me of the fall colors.
My husband gave me a Scan and Cut, several years ago. I thought I should use it so I did.
My daughter and I cut out all the shapes and fused them on. The outer border stumped me
for a while but then the Alphabet Song popped into my head one day, and voila, I had the
border figured out. I love pebbles, so that is what is stitched all over the outer border.
I love this wallhanging but would not want to see that outside of my window.
Suzanne is another local longarmer and she created this quilt. I love the colors in it and she
quilted the designs by freehand. That means that she had lots of fun playing and creating the
designs as she stitched.
A close up of the stitching.
I hope you enjoyed the Show, have a great week and happy stitching.

So much talent!
Thanks so much for sharing, it was wonderful to see the close ups of most of them, It takes time to take the main photo then a close up, you just made my day. Colourful Hexies is the winner in my eyes but all were out standing. Cheers Glenda
