Imagine That….

Imagine That is the name of a local artisan shop where they sell all sorts of wonderful arts and crafts.  I was walking by this shop the other day and look at what was in their window…. a wonderful display of gorgeous quilts!  (I go NO WHERE without my camera!)P1030902 P1030904 P1030905 P1030906 P1030907

This is one of my favourites!  It’s too bad that they hung this quilt by one corner as you can’t really see how beautiful it is.  The stars are on the back of the quilt and there are blue and yellow Dresden plate flowers on the front!  I would LOVE a closer look at this quilt.   P1030908 P1030909 I’m sure these stars were made from old striped shirts….P1030910 I’m going to start collecting blue cotton striped shirts again. The more I looked at this quilt the more I  LOVE IT! P1030912 P1030913 P1030914

Lots of sweet little quilts…perfect for a table or to hang on a wall…

Do you think anyone would notice if I crawled into this window for a better look at this black crazy patch…gorgeous hand embroidery on it and done in such lovely colours.  On the black background the stitches just popped!  Love this one! P1030921

What a wonderful display of quilts!  (I’m sorry about the glare on some of the windows but it was a fairly sunny day…Yikes, did I just apologizing for having a sunny day!!  YES, the sun was out!!)  This display was sponsored by the Cowichan Valley Heritage Quilters.  We have a lot of talented quilters in our Valley.  Well done ladies, you out did yourselves!

Have a marvelous Monday and Happy Quilting!
