The LQS has a Quilt Walk and Antique Car show in Aug each year. I was helping them last weekend with hanging quilts and organizing them to return to it's owner....who would have thought there was so much to be done. The quilts are hung in the shop windows around Ladner Village and the streets are closed for the antique cars and vendors. This was my favourite picture, of course I've always loved this quilt but the flower shop has put all these lovely flowers outside and it just made the quilt even prettier. I like how you can see the reflection of the cars and the quilt almost looks like it floating.
Sorry about the reflection in this one, here's another of my "it's on the list" quilt to make someday.
Too much reflection on this quilt to really see it very well. You'll have to believe me that it's gorgeous.
This quilt was absolutely stunning and gigantic, it's done with nine patches and plain alternate blocks.
I don't know who made this car cover quilt....Oh Gosh there's so much to see on this quilt. And yes there is a car under all those lovely pieced blocks.
I wish I could have gotten this without the reflection....I tried, it just wasn't working. This quilt was done by a dear friend and I LOVE it!! She also won a ribbon for "Viewer's Choice" Well done Donna!!!
EDIT: I just 2 seconds ago talked to Jenny and my Midnight Garden quilt won 2nd place for "Viewers Choice"....woohoo. Oops sorry I didn't think to take pictures of my own quilts....I've seen them a million times....what a dummy...LOL. If you want to see it go here, its the first wool quilt in the post.
Cute puppy quilt, I believe this is a Buggy Barn pattern.
Quilted Bear is the local quilt shop that hosts the show each year. Jenny the shop owner does a tremendous amount of organizing to pull everything together and she does an excellent job. I think she's been organizing the Quilt Walk since she opened the store 7 years ago and then added the antique cars a few years ago. Gotta keep the guys happy too!!.
There she is!!! Isn't she sweet, that's Jenny owner of Quilted Bear. She has a talent for getting things done and has a wonderful staff of worker bees....they do a fantastic job behind the scenes.
Display inside the shop. Halloween is coming soon. Are you thinking pumpkins yet??? I sure am, I have a pumpkin quilt in mind to make soon.
More displays in the shop. That's it for today.
I have more pictures from yesterday's Jo's Little Women club to show, come back for that soon.
