The Crawford’s 4th Annual Quilt Show!!

This year I am giving you plenty of advanced warning…it’s almost time for Crawford’s Annual Quilt Show!  If you don’t remember last year’s show, not to fret…I have pictures to refresh your memory!!  This is Vancouver Island’s Largest OUTSIDE Quilt Show, with over 200 quilts on display!  Crawford’s Farm is located just outside Duncan, BC (about a one hour drive, north of Victoria). 

Posters are going up advertising the event, horns and sirens are going off and airplanes are flying overhead with banners…OK, I tend to exaggerate…but yes, posters are going up!

NOW, let me refresh your memory…I wrote about this event last year, so your mind may be a bit foggy…

As I said, this Quilt Show is held at Crawford’s Farm, which is a working farm…SEW picture hundreds of gorgeous quilts strung up on fields…

I love how the quilt show is outside and hung on lines, fun way to display and nice to be able to walk around outside.
