Quilt Show Time - part 2

I'm hoping to get all of the photos in this post.

Love this next one.

The Canadian flag and Olympics all in one. My apologies for the long grass in the foreground but it was a display that was really too close to get a good photo without it being in the way.

A few really little quilts.

These next quilts were all done by one quilter, Judy Makinson. She is quite prolific and these quilts are based on road grates.

I found this quilt to be much nicer up close than from a distance. Lots and lots of embroidery.

I took this photo for my friend Ulla. She uses men's shirts quite often.

If you don't know what to make a quilt about, then go for a walk.

Just click on the photo for a bigger picture.

I think it would be interesting if we as quilters did something like this world wide. Just think of the 'things' that one could come across during a walk around the block or neighbourhood.

 Here's a few close-ups of what the quilter put under some netting.

These next three were all hung together.

The pattern of the block is called Arrowhead and if you want to make your own, here's the pattern done in a very unusual, quick way.

And that's it for now. Here's a few shots of the old structures on the property. I love old buildings and we sort of stopped traffic for a bit while I took these photos.

I love my little Canon Elph with it's zoom.

And on the other side of the road, behind me was...

a cornfield. 

Now, I'm going to go wash the floors and vacuum to get ready for our Thanksgiving weekend. Family supper is on Sunday to accommodate everyone's schedule.

Have a safe, happy weekend.


  1. More lovely quilts. Thank you for the shirt quilt, I must look for striped shirts next.

  2. More eye candy to enjoy - thank you!! I loved the quilts...and then....I saw the old barns and I was done in. I have a dream of someday creating pictures of old barns in fabric...not sure it will ever happen, but who knows.


Thank you for commenting. I appreciate your thoughts.
