I have been going to the Halton Quilt Show for years. In the beginning it was in a much smaller venue and a yearly show but I don't think they have ever had kitchen facilities. In my thanks above, I did thank the ladies who do work in the kitchen because quite a few shows do have a place where one can purchase a snack or light lunch. The thanks goes to all the other shows I have attended where food has been available. This year, the Halton Quilt Show took place at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, just outside Toronto. I think they have been there now for 3 years. While it was a gorgeous place with lots of space, one room has limited lighting and at times, it made it hard to see the quilts properly. This show took place from April 27-28th.
Now, on with the show.
I love this part of the building. Light and airy.
I never did take a good look at how these quilts were suspended.
See, the lower level had vendors. What a great place to shop. There was another vendor location but it was in a place where the lighting was not half as good as this.
Most of the quilts were machine quilted.
Circles, circles and more circles.
The blurb for the quilt above.
I like this but if it were put on a bed, the houses in the borders would be lost. I guess it's meant as a big wall quilt.
Another quilt along the same general idea. Much brighter colours.
While I am not particularly fond of red, I do like this quilt. It could be because of the border.
This is called Rainbow at Sea and was made for the maker's granddaughter as a dorm quilt in just 28 days.
Some of the border scallops appear lost but I like the colours that were used.
A lot of work has gone into this Dresden Plate.
Here's a close-up of the machine quilting.
Two colour quilts are always effective.
Since I am making one of these for little Patric, my eye immediately caught this one.

A paler version.
This was a group effort.

I do like this quilt. I may make my own one day.
I leave you today with this colourful quilt.
I'll post more tomorrow.
