Part Two

This will be the rest of the photos from the Etobicoke quilt show. Enjoy!

This one is so refreshing. I haven't seen an umbrella girl or umbrella lady quilt in a very long time.

It's so nice to see that someone took the time to finish it. As you all know, quilt patterns are known by various names.

I like the fact that this is not square or rectangular. I suppose it's a wall hanging then.

Neat idea with the nine patch blocks.

The lady with the hair quilt is all paper pieced. I debated on whether I wanted to make her.

I'm not very tall so this is the best I could do with the blurb. Click on it to make it bigger.

Love those braids.

Nice pattern and great colours.

I wish one of my children would buy me a jelly roll.

Now, this was an unusual quilt.

 The creativity of some people.

I found this to be a refreshing and unusual colour combination for a big quilt.

This is just a small wall hanging and I missed it when I was viewing the quilts around it. I kind of snuck my hand around a quilt to take this photo.

I am not normally a yellow person (neither do I use red) but for some reason this quilt just appealed to me a lot.

This is just a teaser to what is coming up.

This was a small wall hanging but the 3D items were so much fun to look at.

Here's a close-up.

I love those colours.

A very nice, peaceful scene.

A close-up of the waterfall.

Another little teaser.


Here's the blurb for the bottom quilt - the yellow and orange flowers.

It was nice to see someone else liked this one.

I have the magazine but didn't buy the kit.

Nicely done applique.

I really like the clean look of this and the way the quilter set those little nine patches. I did say that I liked nine patch quilts - didn't I?

I don't think I would ever make one but this was stunning.

Another great quilt using scraps. A truly wonderful backing too.

I never knew that black stripes gave you dimensions of the blankets.

I really liked this quilt. Mainly because the quilter made it her own.

Mopping up, playing the harp.



Sue the flag waver.

I think this is a great reason to make a quilt. Just for yourself.

A very bright sampler.

Another lucky granddaughter.

For all you red and white fans.

I would have liked to have seen this with a beige or an off white background.

For some strange reason I am taken by old fashioned quilts.

A close-up of the two block design.

For all you crazy quilters out there.

Great colours.

Chosen by a man.

I have always liked this pattern. It's an Atkinson pattern.

Such an easy pattern and so much fun.

And yet, another quilt made for a granddaughter.

My eldest daughter loves loons.

To end today's show I shall leave you with this fun quilt.

This is why it's so much fun. There are little bears living in the houses.

I hope you enjoyed the show. 
I'm off to make a pair of little pants and a couple of shirts.
