Here are the last photos from the local Quilt Show. I hope that you
enjoy the show as much as I did.
This is a completed 365 Quilt, made by Mary. I was really
surprised by how heavy it was, that is without any stitching or
batting underneath it either. I quilted it for Mary and she
recommended using a flannel sheet for the batting. What a great
idea! It wasn’t too thick, like traditional batting but it would still
hold and show off the quilting beautifully.
Mary also chose a simple quilting design, called “Swirl” by Norma Sharp.
With all the prints in the quilt, the quilting doesn’t show up that much so
simple is better in this case.
Love the colors and the pattern of this one.
Who can resist the black and white zebra print in this quilt?
I really like the colors and pattern of this wallhanging. I quilted one for a customer
last week so the pictures will be coming soon.
A close up of the dragonflies-beautiful!
This one is mine. I finally finished it after 2 years. I had so much fun looking for all
the small embellishments to add to it. Alot of the embellishments were earrings or
buttons. Funny where you can find stuff to put on a quilt.
What is one weird place or item that you have found or used on a quilt, that
wouldn’t normally be used for quilting?
Marlies made this wallhanging in a class with Al Cote. I have mentioned his name
before. He lives in Niagara Falls and is a very talented quilt artist. If you ever get a
chance to take one of his classes, do it! I promise that you won’t be disappointed.
This one reminds me of an aboriginal design.
Wow! So much piecing in this one.
Christine made this beauty. Maple Leaves were added to it because it is her
ode to Canada’s 150th Birthday. What a great gift this would be.
There is alot of straight lines and pebbling on this quilt, along with maple leaves.
Linda made this quilt; she is very talented when it comes to designing her own
I love all forms of stitching and I couldn’t pass up taking a shot of this. Such
patience in making this piece. Good thing we all have different interests or the
world would be a boring place.
Again, alot of time and effort went into this piece.
This looks so exquisite. Love, love, love it! The colors, the stitching, the way it
is being displayed.
A close up of the same flower.
More Canadiana quilts; everyone was hard at work this year making something
to remember our country’s 150th Birthday.
Mary made this wallhanging to honor both her American heritage and her
Canadian family.She did a great job!
You have got to love the Mounties in uniform. For all those out there who are not
Canadian, “Mounties” is a term for one branch of our Police Force.
This is the tulip that was chosen for this year’s celebration of Canada’s
Birthday; can’t recall its name though. Anyone know its name?
Love the red and white colors.
This quilt depicts different geographical locations all over Canada.
Even Sun Bonnet Sue participated in Canada’s 150th Birthday; she travelled all over Canada.
Row by Row quilt of Canada.
Our beloved Maple Leaf; alot of them around this time of the year.
I really love the colors and Canadian items in this quilt.
Several close ups of the blocks.
This beaver looks a little skinny to me.
I couldn’t pass up showing pictures of these hooked rugs. The colors and pictures
are so gorgeous.
So many talented people in this area.
The top hooked rug, of the Boat, is stunning. It must have been a nightmare choosing those
Mary’s Elephant was stunning and won the “Best Wallhanging” at the Show.
I learned so much about elephants when I quilted this piece. Funny how quilting
can lead to something totally unrelated. So much fun to still be learning.
I hope you have a good week and check out
