Cowichan Fair 2012…continued…

So here we are…day TWO at the Fair!  I have lots of good stuff yet to show…hope you’re ready!

The first three quilts are what I call the Daisy Quilts…an easy and fun  quilt to make and a great scrap buster!  I put all three together so that you can see what a difference colours and borders make…





All three are gorgeous!  Looks like the judges liked them too!


I took a picture of this quilt…because it’s an RV quilt made from the cutest RV fabric!!  Seems to me someone at The Sands also bought this fabric…just can’t remember WHO?  Wouldn’t this be sweet draped over a chair in the 5th wheel?  Oh yah…I can see that!


Way to go Vicki…second in Wall Hangings and also a Theme Winner… ‘Bounty in our Valley’!  This is going to be cute hanging in your kitchen!


And third in the same category….


This quilt STILL messes with my mind…can you IMAGE this quilter’s design wall?  YIKES!!  It is so perfect for Fall…

The centre of this quilt is simply different shades of yellow tied together with a scalloped border of blues and different shades of yellow!  VERY nice…wouldn’t it look lovely in a baby’s room!


This wee Dresden is all finished and magnificent.  Just look at that hand quilting!


It was up against stiff competition!  This is another wee small quilt made out of fingernail sized hexies also beautifully hand quilted!!


This small quilt was also a visual stunner!  Such talent leaves me in awe!


The Australian quilters will enjoy these Spring quilts…after all they are gearing up for Spring!


Very sweet!


Hopefully you can read what this quilter wrote about her Union Jack Pillow!  Love it!


Don’t you love seeing a quilt that is on your Bucket List…well for me, this was such a quilt!!  LOVE it and Joan did a mind blowing job!   The Judge’s agree with me…or I guess I agree with them!  :o)


Her hand stitched letters look like rope!  She used two different colours of thread to achieve this look…LOVE it!


The back was almost as pretty as the front!


LOVED this quilt…I want!


AND there is NOTHING like a wonderful SCRAP HAPPY quilt..and this one made me smile!


  And if you like chickens…and who doesn’t …then this one is for YOU!P1190954

And finally this beauty!  I showed you this one already (at Heritage) but it deserves a re-visit…took my breath away then and leaves me giddy now…oh yeah, I’m always like this..:o}


Hope you enjoyed the show as much as I did!  Tomorrow I want to show you all the non-quilting stuff…such diverse and wonderful talent in our little valley!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
