Pictures from Quilt Canada

Quilt Canada was held in Toronto this year at the International Centre. I went on Thursday. Wow! The inspiration, I have a mental list of things I'd like to do and try. The only snag is time, or lack thereof. I know I'm not the only one with this little problem.
How about some inspiration?

Fall's First Frost by Susan Jensen
   This piece was stunning, the trees literally stood out.
Coast moments of the Woods by Carol Seeley


A few of the Quilts of Valour this was a Northcott challenge.




     

A couple of my favourites and there were lots more.  When looking at Walking with Mom it left you feeling like you were with them on their walk. A beautiful and amazing piece!!!

Walk with Mom by Debora Barlow


Over 30 different purples in Ellie and Squeak.

Ellie and Squeak by Terry Rowland Can you spot Squeak?

What show would be complete without some acquisitions?

these are destined for a bag. They are Northcott Stonehenge fabrics
The green ( L's Modern by Lecien) and purple ( Bear Essentials by P & B Textiles) go so well with the floral print (Walk in the Park by Maywood Studio) they just had to come home with me.

these may make it to a new quilt pattern I'm working on

I swore off FQ's but in my defense these are landscape fabrics and one can never have too many of those.

puffy clouds, turbulent water and little flowers 

 A four metre piece will be used for a backing from Sew Sisters.

at $4.99/m, four metres came home
Freebies are always welcome!

I really enjoyed the show! The quilts were amazing!

Ellie Anne squeak is so clever! No show is complete without acquisitions. Sounds like a lovely day. :)

I enjoyed seeing the Canadian quilts, they really do tell the story. And I love your new stash!

I find it so interesting that we all pick different quilts or sets of quilts as our favourites from the show! I brought home a few things too...

All of those quilts are stunning. I can't get over the detail in some of the pictorial quilts. And those are some pretty yummy stash additions as well :)

That top Quilt of Valour was one of my favourite quilts at the show....and yes I did some buying as well.

Lots of eye-candy. Thank you for sharing. Landscape fabrics - I have none of those in my stash. Oh no!!!
