Quilt Show

Before we get to the Quilt Show, I must show these 2 pincushions I made. The black and white one was a gift from a wonderful friend, Thanks Karen (no blog) you are so thoughtful and the other I made using the same fussy cut fabric in the center. If you click on the picture you'll see that it's a kitty drinking from a cup. I had fun playing with the Halloween fabrics.
Every year the Quilted Bear organizes a Quilt Walk in the Historical Town of Ladner BC, it's been running for 9 years. After the first year the guys were a bit jealous and so they added the classic car show on the same day, you won't see many cars in my post, it's all about the quilts. Sorry about the glare in the photo's, the quilts are hung in shop windows and it was very difficult to get a good picture. I tried...so here you go anyway.
This is the Wish Quilt Homespun Magazine published earlier this year.

Funny ladies having fun, you can't see it but the black bird has scissors in it's beak.

This quilt is unbelievable, it has every type of fabric sewn in there, batiks, novelty, 1930's, everything and it turned out gorgeous.
I liked the simplicity of this quilt and the colour choices.
This girl made a table cloth using all her Mom's and Grandma's crocheted doilies. Turned out wonderful.

Oh look lunch is ready. I remember going to A&W and having root beer and hamburgers and the person came right to the car.

Isn't this Bargello just beautiful. It was done by my dear friend Donna, she did a wonderful job of picking fabrics.
I love this Kim Diehl quilt and it's so beautifully done. This lady made this quilt for her son and DIL. I hope they know how much work went in to this beauty.
Close up, the applique is done so nicely.

A fun cheerful quilt.

Of course the car quilt, sorry the pictures not very good.
Now here is a couple of pictures inside the Quilted Bear. It's a really cute shop. Jenny the shop owner also has a blog, stop by and give her a warm Welcome.
More displays in the shop.

A sweet little display.

Those pincushions are so cute, I love that kitty fabric! The quilts are gorgeous, some really amazing ones! I loved A&W..we still have one but no more car delivery. We just got a Sonic though and they are just like A&W was only they roller skate to the car...pretty fun! O.k. I love that quilt with the hearts in a ring in the bottom photo, I want to make that!!

Thanks for sharing your quilt show day with us! I am going to have to look up the Quilt Shop on the net. My quilting buddies and I are always talking about making a SHOP HOP over to the Vancouver area. (Quiltopia, Hamels and now Bear Paws!) That would be a good one to add on....Thank you!

There is still an A&W Rootbeer stand in Tallmadge, Ohio that would be like you remember. http://cleveland.metromix.com/restaurants/american/a-and-w-all-tallmadge/398448/content

Wonderful photos - looked like a great day - I'm putting this on our calendar for next year.

Great to see photos of the shop on here. I never think to take them. Did you see the quilts in the Museum? There was a crazy quilt from 1888 and a bunch of others.

Jackie said...

All the pictures of the quilts are fabulous. But I have to say, I do have a few faves. The Cinco De Mayo, the stitchery, the ladies, the bargello, the Kim Diehl... well I guess I really like all of them. Thanks for the great show!

Wonderful pictures of some beautiful quilts. I love that Kim Diehl quilt and her applique is wonderful. Your friend Donna's quilt is stunning. Yes I remember the A&W as well - great memories. Do they even have the drive ups anymore. Your pincushions are cute. Thanks for the eye candy :)

The quilt show looks fantastic and adding the classic car show makes a great combination for hubby and me.
