The Victoria Guild’s Quilt Show 2014…

Let’s have a look at one more booth before we stroll through the quilts…This is Hamel’s Fabrics booth!  They always have lovely things and at a great price!  Hamel’s has a shop in Chilliwack (outside Vancouver), plus they have a wonderful on-line shop…which you can visit HERE!

Hamel’s is always fun to poke around…and it’s always a miracle if you come away empty handed!!

Ok…on with the show!  The Victoria Guild had TONS of modern and Art quilts entered in this years show.  This is just a small sprinkling…

Oh…but before we get too far into the show the Sand’s Clubhouse Quilters will be happy to see who I bumped into!!  It’s Dorothy!!  She was a long time member of our Quilt group down south.  Sadly, Dorothy lost her husband a few years ago and no longer comes down to The Sands…BUT she is still busy quilting and as you can see…she looks WONDERFUL!

So if you love modern quilts or Art Quilts this is the show for YOU!  Be warned…there was not one wool quilt, penny or mat…:((  But we were pleased to see all the hand quilted quilts!  Hand quilting is alive and doing very well in Victoria! 

If you would like to see more pictures of the Victoria Show then go to Kathy’s blog Quilting Along the Gorge.  She did an awesome job!

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
