A Small Finish and Quilt Show

One small finish to show off . . .
. . . another pin cushion.  

Have someone in mind that might receive this.


Last weekend I went to the Quilt Show at Heritage Park in Calgary.

There was lots of eye candy!



As you can see the crowds weren't there as it was threatening rain on the Saturday.

Shortly after I took these pictures it did rain but thankfully it wasn't cold.

It's just such a nice setting to show off quilts.

Here are a couple more of my favourites!



It's so interesting to see the variety colours, skills and patterns.


I like the way the quilter put the stars, hearts, letters and numbers on this quilt.

Lots of ideas and what a fun way to spend with a friend.

Going to link up with AmandaJean at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Enjoy your weekend!

  2. pincushions may be small, but if I made one like that, I would be ecstatic at my accomplishment :) It is adorable! And the quilt show looks fantastic! Good pictures, since it isn't too sunshiney!

  5. What a great setting for a quilt show, it looks as if people have just hung them out to air rather than some of the more cramped settings of some the indoor shows!
