Celebrating 150 with Quilts from Quilting & Learning

150 years of quilting in Canada exhibitI've had a crazy busy week with Art with Fabric on Monday and then a two-day surface design course with Hillary Rice. I can't wait to write a post about my surface design experiments, but it'll have to wait a few days, cause today we're going to Celebrate - Fêtons 150 with some amazing quilts from the Ottawa Valley Quilter's Guild Show - Festival of Quilts 2017.

There was an exhibit of  "150 Years of Quilting in Canada" at the Festival of Quilts 2017. The quilt below fits right into our theme. The British Empire Quilt features ...

Hands Across the Border Exhibition - Aurora from Quilt Art by Olena Pugachova

This Tuesday I attended the official opening of the "Hands Across the Border" exhibition organised biannually by the Irish Patchwork Society and the Quilters' Guild of Northern Ireland. This year's theme is "Aurora" and it proved to be a great theme with multiple possible interpretations and really strong visual impact.


The room is large and well-lit, but there are only two walls available for hanging quilts, so they are a bit crammed together. The  opening was a very nice affair, with opening speeches by Ruth Bourke of Charlie and Ben's Crafty Corner, our chairperson,  and Leo Enright, space ...

My First Quilt Show Vendor Experience from Needle and Foot

Well I now have one quilt show under my belt. I signed up (for the first time) to be a vendor at our local guild’s quilt show. This show happens the first weekend of May each year. It is a pretty good size show with maybe 250 quilts to look at and about 1100 visitors coming through over the course of the show. I was a bit nervous as I had absolutely no idea what to expect.  Overall, I would classify my experience as a huge success!

We set up my 10′ x 10′ booth on Friday afternoon.  My ...

Getting Ready from Needle and Foot

I spent quite a bit of time over the weekend preparing for a quilt show coming up this weekend. I decided to attend the show as a vendor and several months ago, I bought a booth for the vendor area. I got the smallest size booth they have and will give it a go.  My wonderful sister is coming to help me – this way if it is busy I will have help and if it is slow, she will commiserate with me.  Win-win for me!  She has great ideas and is very talented as a decorator so she has been ...

Bi-Annual Quilt Show from SEW, RIP, SEW

This weekend was our Quilt Show.  It was for 3 days Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Our guest quilter was Mary Elizabeth Kinch who spent 2 days in classes and then a fabulous trunk show last night at our banquet.  

The prize winners:

Third Prize

This quilt was hand quilted with half inch quilting in the negative space.

Second Place

The negative space in this quilt looks like Trapunto because it has regular batting and wool batting between the top and the backing.

First Place

This quilt has petit point embroidery along with Mariner's compass scalloped border.

lots of goodness . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Super busy week at work . . . my poor coworker thought she had an ear infection, but it turned out she had shingles in her ear canal. Ugh. Needless to say, she went home and stayed home. I was very glad when 5:00 p.m. on Thursday rolled around!  On Friday, Todd and I launched the boat and took our last 'date day' for a couple of weeks.  
I never, ever get tired of this view.  Gosh, what a beautiful day we had! Not quite as fishy as the last outing, but Todd did pretty good. I opted to pick up ...

A Quilt Show and a Mystery from The Chester County Criswell Quilt

Our patchwork group has just finished our bi-annual quilt show. The new gigantic cover photo shows my Chester Criswell and Malaga 1937 which had their first public outing.




We changed venue this year. The space was new to us so the set-up time was longer, but we had twice as many visitors as our previous show.  Our group has 25 members and we only show quilts that have been finished in the last two years.  We hung a total of 173 quilts!







This is my chimney sweep swap, with reproduction blocks made by friends at Quilts in the Barn / Wonga ...

Complete, Finished, Done! from Quilting Solutions

Two quilts completed this week.  I know you have seen my dog ad nauseum, but it is now trimmed and sports a border.  Those two tasks really made her worth looking at.  As I have said before, much of the quilting is under par, because there were so many problems with the fusible.  I have to call this project a real learning experience.  I still love this little quilt and am now able to look at it with joy instead of disappointment.

No hanging sleeve on this one.  Pardon the safety pins!

A Visit to the MQX Quilt Festival - New England from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

Last weekend a family wedding north of Boston coincided with the MQX Quilt Festival in Manchester, New Hampshire.  My oldest daughter and I made a mini vacation of it.  We took two days to drive over from Northeast Ohio allowing us time to visit the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge in upstate New York for some birding and An Unlikely Story, the bookstore of children's author, Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) in Plainville, Massachusetts.
The birding was good (30 species and good looks at migrating ducks) and the bookstore is delightful! 
The Ohio cousins all met up in ...

Color Wheel of Emotions from Sew Preeti Quilts

I know several planners, doctors, engineers, and now quilters.  And I have decided that quilters are the best people - even when you have not met them.  Once you meet them, it only gets better.



This blogpost is about three quilters.

1. GrammaBabs - Her name is Barbara and she lives in Massachusetts.  We know each other through the M* quilting forum. Therefore it came as a surprise to me when she asked me the following:

"is that little baby here yet??? Just wondering... can't wait to send something for HE or SHE...:))"

GrammaBabs was asking about Harry and Sally's ...

Quilt Show and other stuff from SueLynn Designs

Hi all.

I was finally working on my quilts for the quilt show, making some progress in early February.  I went to a new doctor and he put me on some fancy new medicine, a once a week injection.  It helped my blood sugar alright. I was so sick the first week, but since I was also taking antibiotics for an infection, I thought they might be interacting, so at the end of the first week, I took the next dose. Oh boy, the new meds took care of the high blood sugar alright, I was so sick I couldn ...

Quilt Las Vegas 2017 – A Recap and a New Milestone from Christa Quilts

Quilt Las Vegas is the annual quilt show put on by my local traditional guild here in Las Vegas, Desert Quilters of Nevada. I’ve been a member of the guild for over 20 years, and I’ve been entering their show for nearly as long. It’s the show that gave me the confidence to start competing nationally. I’ve also learned a lot about what goes on in the judging room as a volunteer. As my quilting skills increased, it’s been reflected in the number of times I’ve gotten a ribbon. However, the show this weekend ...
