Quilts at the Creek (last weekend)

After the Jacquie Gering workshop last Friday, Christine went home and I stayed overnight to go to the York Heritage Quilt Guild Quilt show at Black Creek Pioneer Village. My husband came down to go to the quilt show with me--such a supportive husband!  

This is a block from the first quilt we was my husband's favourite!

The quilts were hung on the buildings and on racks all over the village. We walked around and looked at all of the quilts twice!

The old buildings really showed off the quilts perfectly.

Some were hung on fences as well.
It was fun to see the quilts blowing in the breeze.

Just ignore the not so pioneer fire hydrant :-)

I am glad we walked around the village twice because I did not want to miss a thing!

Colourful quilts, everywhere we looked!

These quilt racks are made from 2X4's and saw horse brackets from the hardware store.

These two were just not interested in the quilts at all...

I remember going to Black Creek Pioneer Village as a child for field trips when we were studying pioneers in school. We took our daughter there at Christmas time one year when she was little. All of the buildings were decorated for the holidays and the smell of homemade cookies filled the air in the pioneer homes.  We highly recommend a trip to the Village for you and your family if you are in Toronto.

We even hit the vendors area before leaving...I bought some new Hiroshima quilting needles to try as well as some thread and two fat quarters.  I am still working on stash reduction rather than stash enhancement these days.


  1. what a beautiful venue for a quilt show thanks for sharing

  2. We traveled to Maine and stumbled on a quilt show. Only problem I find is I add more "to do" quilts on my already long, long list. Very good pictures by the way.

  3. So lovely quilts! I've really enjoyed this "walk" with you. Thanks for sharing.

  4. What a lovely quilt show. Thanks for sharing.
