Quilt Show at Crawford’s Farm..Part 3!

So we have visited two pastures…onto the third, fourth and fifth!!  Hope you are wearing good walking shoes?  I don’t think that I have ever been to a Quilt Show where I saw lovely quilts and got a work out too!  Got to love that!

So let’s start with this great stash buster~

There must have been a Stack and Whack class…that I missed out on!  There were several of these and they were all lovely!

One of my favourites was this diamond quilt…made from drapery/upholster fabric!!  The colours were wonderful!

Sometimes it’s the simple quilts, like this four patch, that are the most visually pleasing…and are the quilts that you would like to snuggle under…

I have this pattern…somewhere…and have never seen it done in this type of colour way.

There were tons more quilts but I don’t want you or my computer to explode!!  :o)  I’m so glad you got to see a sampling of the quilts from our little Cowichan Valley!  Hope your dogs aren’t barking too loudly??

Have a Thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P

Paulette - did you think that was mesh on that quilt?? We thought it was more of a dense stippling/thread painting technique.... did you know it was done by the same quilter who did ALL the animal quilts. Apparently she is very artistic and is a local dentist. One of the organizers was telling me then tapped her front teeth and said "aren't these artistic"!!!!

Girl, you can post as many of these as you want, lol! I LOVE that diamond quilt, that is amazing. I never would have thought of using drapery fabrics.
