Quilt Show

I almost forgot to show these pictures of the local quilt show from last weekend. Lions Gate Quilt Guild had a spectacular show of talented quilters. Here is a mini version for a Sunday afternoon, grab a cup of tea and enjoy.
This oak leaf quilt was my favourite, it's all done in homespun's....just gorgeous.

Winter Barn.
Cute quilt.
Simple and lovely.
Just because I love Halloween.

Sunflowers are beautiful, look at the humming bird.
More sunflowers.
I think these are poppy's.
Might be maple leaves, I think I've got the picture sideways...oh well you get the idea.

Have a wonderful afternoon. I hope you enjoyed the show.

EDITED: check out Pam's blog, she has posted some from the same show and they are different then the ones I posted.

I am glad you enjoyed the show Wendy. I have a couple of pictures posted as well. Did you see the fabric on the back of the Halloween quilt? It was glow in the dark eyes - quite cute. There was some great sunflower wall hangings from a class that was offered.

The blackberry/raspberry jam looks very tasty!

A really lovely variety of quilts, Wendy - I must have slipped up on checking your blog - sorry about Jenny, but then again sounds like she had 17 of the most wonderful years on earth.
God bless you - Lurline!

Teresa said...

I am just catching up on reading your blog and wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your loss of Jenny. Our beloved pets certainly do leave a big void when they leave us.

I wanted to mention to you that the Oak Leaf pattern you show comes from a Fons & Porter magazine. I have it scanned in on my cd and if you would like me to send it to you, I will be happy to do so. I had just printed it out a few days ago thinking it would be a great applique patter to make.
