Well, now that it's over, I can show you some of the great quilts that were hung at Pioneer Village in Toronto this past weekend - Quilts at the Creek. The weather was great for both days. There was a trunk show each day by two different quilters and there was also a vendors area. Included in this year's viewing was a quilt set up on a frame with a few ladies demonstrating hand quilting. As I walked around, the comments were quite favourable. Hopefully, it generated enough interest in some people to begin quilting.
If you wish, please click on any of the photos once, or twice, and it will enlarge itself.
This was one of the quilts that was hung inside the main building.
A close-up of the big stitch quilting.
A first glance, this looks like it's just like any other lone star quilt.
But look again. It's cross stitched.
And now, we'll go outside to view the majority of the wonderful quilts.
Now, this was another one that was really distinctive.
The ladies are crocheted.
It is hand embroidered and hand quilted.
It was for sale too. Sorry for the blurry photo but the wind would blow every once in a while.
Oh look, sheep. There was one noisy one in the bunch but he/she took off behind this group.
This one deserved to be studied.
And look what I finally found after making a whole circle around the buildings. My Juniper Hollow. I love this location. It is exactly the same place that they hung a 16-patch quilt last year that inspired me to make mine. Serendipity.
I do hope you enjoyed the show.
