Canada Quilt Show

     Last weekend, I was able to travel to the Canada national quilt show near Toronto by bus with other quilters from the Quilters Consortium of New York Sate. Three of my own guild members traveled with me- the others were from all over NYS. Next year the show will be in Vancouver, so I was glad I went this year. I live in Buffalo, NY so it was just over 2 hours away. I had my little camera, so the quality of the photos is not up to my usual ones.
    The show had a juried section and a non juried section. I found most of the creative quilts were found in the latter. There were some vendors there, but I was able to keep it under control. My favorite fabric was Shweshwe from South Africa, but I found it when I was at the end of my budget. I will be ordering some.
An incredible reverse appliqued quilt, wow

I especially like that triangles quilt with the oranges, blues, and reds. Thanks for the eye candy today.

Thanks for the show. I love the landscapes and natural themes, especially the aspen woods. But, you really know you want to go to Vancouver too!I think the Pacific Northwest is one of THE MOST BEAUTIFUL places on earth! (wonder how quilting landscapes from that region would look)
