Happy Belated Canadian Thanksgiving & Local Quilt Show-Part 2

Here are some more pictures from our local Quilt Show, which took place

about a month ago.

Once again, there are alot of photos so you may want to grab a beverage.

Modern Quilt

There were alot of modern quilts in the show this year.

Triangles

I really like the colors of this quilt and the pattern as well.

What great colors in this one too.

A Baby Quilt

A part of this baby quilt is cut off because the lighting is off

somewhat.

This quilt is very interesting in its piecing and quilting.

All of the quilting is done by hand. The owner did a great job.

Cool colors.

Vans

This quilt just yells “fun” to me. What do you think?

A close up of the vans.

A great kid’s quilt

I really like the embellishments on this quilt.

The penguin has lots of hair.

The lama has a really cool texture to it.

More animals and birds.

The Bird Quilt

Another Modern Quilt

A Block Quilt

A sampler quilt. Below is a close up of the blocks.

A classy looking quilt.

Red Quilt

This one reminds me of all the Canadian Quilts I have seen this year.

 

Interesting piecing

Isn’t it amazing how one block can look so different, depending on the colors used.

A Bargello Heart Quilt. I have never tried one of these.

Blue and White Quilt

This one looks so complicated.

Maybe not so complicated now?

An Embroidered Quilt;  looks very classy to me. It won Viewers Choice Award.

Christy was a very happy quilter.

A close up of the embroidery and the quilting. Rose quilted it; she is a very

talented longarmer in the area too.

The quilting looks like lace to me.

The backing shows another tale of the same story.

Another colorful quilt.

I like the soft pastel colors of this quilt.

And I love all the colors in this one too. There are more quilts to come

from the same Quilt Show. Have a great week and check out

The Needle and Thread Network.

Canadian Quilt Show-Part 2

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

provoking.

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.

More circles.

Dorothy Fu

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.

Kelly’s Quilt

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.

“Around Town”

It was quite interesting and fun to look at and examine.

This quilt below was quite stunning. Colette Dumont  made it, is from

Quebec.

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.

Corner blocks

Again, all the colors are embroidered. And there are a ton of crystals on it too.

Elephant Quilt

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

job!!

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.
