Quilt BC - Kamloops - May 5, 2007

On May 5, 2007 our Quilt Guild chartered a bus to take us to Quilt BC in Kamloops. The National Juried Show was disappointing. I enjoyed the quilts in the smaller shows held elsewhere in town and the Trend-Tex Challenge more than the Juried show. We weren't allowed to take pictures of the quilts in the Juried show show I can't show you those quilts. I purchased the catalogue of quilts that were exhibited so that I would have pictures of the quilts but I have nothing to show you here.

There was a large merchants mall where I managed to find some items to bring home with me. :)

The fabric on the left was part of a kit to make place mats. The middle fabrics were bright and cheerful--simply irresistible. The fabrics on the right are fruits and vegetables. I was inspired by a BQ quilt in the Fall/Winter 2006 issue of Quilt Sampler. The quilt was featured in a shop in Tuscon, Arizona called The Quilter's Market. I have scanned the photo just in case you don't have access to the magazine. The photo is a little grainy but hopefully you can see the BQ quilt on the table done in vegetable and black and white fabrics.

I also found a cute crate of black and white fabrics and some Laurel Burch cat fabric that I couldn't leave behind.

I also picked up a show pin and CQA thimble for my collection.


  1. I am also collecting food fabrics for some future quilt but I don't have a pattern in mind. The fabrics have such pretty colors.

  2. Wow, they didn't let you take pictures! I remember my days as Quebec Rep for the CQA. It was fun to have contact with the quilds. Funny, I didn't have time to belong to one. Glad you were able to find some goodies! Looking forward to seeing what you do with them! Be well!

  3. Too bad about the show being disappointing. But you got to shop!!!
