On With The Show….

The good thing about showing the Parksville Quilt Show pictures a week or two late is that all the quilts have become NEW to me again… (is that a senior’s thing?)..Anyways.. regardless of my age…what I am TRYING to say is that I am enjoying the show the second time around!

Let’s start off the show with a quilt that I know Poppyprint should LOVE!! 

Magnificent, isn’t she?


Just look at the thread work!!  Incredible!


Yup…love poppies and these are no exception!  They were show stoppers, for sure!


  There were several Japanese Sashiko quilts in the show..perhaps there had been a workshop?  Regardless, lovely workmanship and enjoyed looking at all of them!


The Parksville quilters are masters at  appliqué!!  Beautiful work!!

Isn’t this table topper interesting!!  Very nice!

P1180560  I think this might be reverse appliqué.


A chisel quilt that looks GO! friendly!   Love the little pinwheels on the alternating rows!  They add a little zing, as do the borders!


OK…I am just going to let you wander…and I will see you at the end of the show…ENJOY!

P1180592 P1180593 P1180594 Hey…it’s the Jo Morton quilt that I was talking about the other day…who knew that it was in the show! haha P1180596

And a good way to finish off the ‘Quilts by the Sea Quilt Show’…  


All hand embroidered too!  The quilter who stitched these blocks estimated that each block took about 30 hours to complete!!  OUCH!


Truly a work of art!

Tomorrow I will show you my favourite in show!  I know..I know…you are sitting on the edge of your seat waiting…breathlessly…

Have a SUNNY Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. These quilts went very well with my tea this morning :)

  2. Better watch out, you'll use up all your digital film in the camera if you keep taking this many great photos!! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Paulette, you should start that bucket list quilt now so it will be DONE when the first grand arrives. Synthia is making "I spy" quilt for future great-grands that haven't arrived yet.

  4. I love going to quilt shows. It's always so inspiring, yet humbling at the same time. Can't wait to see your favorite.

  5. Nothing starts the day better than coffee and a quilt show! LOVE that spiral table topper, wow. And those hand embroidered shells! Amazing!

  6. Some really beautiful quilts and designs, so many things that I would love to do and we know, we will never have the time for them all;)

  12. Roger Keener told KGO. Proper time management is indeed very essential in this case. * A veteran who is rated 60 percent service-connected and is unemployable or has an official rating of "permanent and total disabled;" * Travel nurses can work anywhere in the country and if a particular location is not to their liking, they dont have to worry because they will be moving on soon. A person loses their thinking, memory, and reasoning.
