Getting Ready for the Quilt Show

I have been sewing binding on my flannel quilt and adding hanging sleeves to my quilts for the London Friendship Quilters' Guild Harvest of Quilts show this weekend. After several hours of hand-stitching, I am done.  I am going to add this post to Kathy's Handstitching Sundays post.

My flannel quilt was long armed by Cathy --she used a pattern called Northern Stars which I picked out from a website where Cathy purchases patterns.

I finally had a sunny day and two quilt holders available yesterday! My daughter is home for a few days from university and she held one end while her Dad held the other end.

I am looking forward to having this cozy flannel quilt on my bed this winter!

I made this quilt for the LFQG challenge a few years ago and recently donated it to a fundraising auction at Camp Kintail. Our family attended family camp at Camp Kintail for many years and my daughter worked there as a counsellor for a few years.

The challenge fabric was the Laurel Birch fish fabric.

I did the quilting with straight lines myself.

I hope the new owner enjoys my fish quilt and that the Camp was able to raise lots of money for the camp through their silent auction fundraiser.

At our last London Friendship Quilters' Guild meeting, we had a speaker that showed quilts she had made from feedsacks. This cross stitch block was part of one of the quilts. It reminded me of my daughter--she is not a morning person!

Happy Sewing!
