I went to the International Ploughing Match (I can't help it...I can't spell ploughing p-l-o-w-i-n-g...it's not right) Quilt Show today in Shedden. I was excited to go, because I knew that the work of many of my fellow guild members would be hanging, and many of them winning ribbons as well!
I'll share a few photos - don't want to spoil the show for those who will be going tomorrow. Here are a couple of my favourites:
I don't know the maker of this gorgeous quilt. The applique is stunning.
But I do know the maker of THIS one! Heather H. ohhhhhhhhh....if only I could have stepped just a smidge further back, I could have captured the borders of this. I think Heather's School Houses were my favourite quilt of the whole show.
And I know this one's maker too! Pat O. used a Cross-Stitch pattern to create this quilt, each 'x' represented by a 1"x1" square of fabric. Literally thousands of pieces, and months and months of work went into it, and the whole guild enjoyed watching the birth of this beauty. Notice the ribbon on it? Seems I saw at least THREE of Pat's creations with ribbons on them. OOPS! Did I let the cat out of the bag??
