This was a redwork snowman quilt that I fell in love with. The setting is not the traditional block and sashing or alternating embroidered block and pieced block that I have seen in redwork quilts in the past.
There were two crazy pieced pumpkin quilts. I loved the variety of the orange fabrics used for the pumpkins. I think the crazy piecing gives the pumpkins texture.
This quilt was hanging in the entrance to the show. I am a fan of rail fence quilts--particularly those that are arranged in less than traditional settings. This quilt uses some of the rail fence blocks to make the maple leaf blocks--very clever.
While at the show, I sat in on a paper piecing demo that was given by Donna Mercer. Donna pointed out a paper pieced quilt in the show that was a must to see. This is that quilt. Each of the boys and girls in this quilt have been paper pieced. The kids are surrounded with buttons and charms depicting the letter of the alphabet corresponding to that particular boy or girl's shirt. The quilter who made this quilt plans on donating it to Canuck Place .
This was a quilt made from blocks coloured with crayons. The cats on this quilt were wonderful!
This was a space themed BQ Quilt. I was particularly interested in how it was quilted. It was quilted quite simply with straight lines echoing the shape of the coloured pieces.
This quilt was not a BQ quilt, but the quilting could also be used in a BQ design. This quilt was quilted with radiating lines that centered in the Spiderman fabric. I think the quilter was trying to mimic the spiderweb design of the fabric.
