Last week, the Elgin Piecemakers met and we had a great show and tell. Here are the churn dash blocks that we all made for this month's charity quilt. There are still a few blocks to be handed in so there should be at least 12 for this quilt.
Here are some more show and tell quilts... Doesn't this one look like stained glass with the light shining through from the window behind it?
This past weekend, we spent the weekend at the Tulip Festival in Ottawa. If you click on the link, you can read about why there are so many tulips in Ottawa. There was a tent set up with a quilting frame for people to add a few stitches to this tulip quilt.
The tulip festival area was decorated with lots of tulips that had been painted with various themes. This one is called the Friendship Quilt Tulip.
On our way to Ottawa, we stopped in Belleville at "Fun with Stitches" (link in sidebar)--one of my favourite quilt shops, where I bought fabric to make my MIL and FIL pillowcases for their birthdays. My MIL likes sheep so here is here pillowcase which I made last night.
Today, I went to the Quilts of the Netherlands show in Ailsa Craig with my friend Karen after work. I forgot to bring my camera so there are no pictures of the quilts to share. (Sorry!) I bought 5 Dutch fabric FQ's though so here they are...
This Saturday, I will be going to the Canadian Quilter's Association show in London, Ontario for the day. Is there such a thing as too many quilt shows??? I don't think so!!!
