We headed out to the Rocky Mountain House Quilt show this weekend to do some photographing and some blogging but the weather turned for the worse and we decided to turn around – weather in Alberta is very unpredictable as most of you know. Thus no photos of great quilts to share with you this time.
Black Gold Quilt Patch Quilt Show “Expressions form the Heart”
We took so many photos at the Leduc show so I had to split this blog posting into two settings. We’ve saved the best for last…enjoy.
these minis were all grouped together at the back of the room…well worth the wait
This was a mask that you would wear for New Years – such a neat concept and great work.
This thread painting is incredible
My Sister loves these landscape quilts – I haven’t gotten into these yet but I do appreciate them and this one is great with the vibrant colours.
Look at this interesting frayed ribbon she used – what a good concept and technique to incorporate.
there was a few Christmas quilts but this one I liked best – so cheery and fun.
here’s a close up of the details.
large photo of this quilt – looks good doesn’t it?
here’s the close up of the center – now doesn’t this bead work look incredible – it was truly stunning.
There was such a great mixture of quilts throughout this display – so inspiring. I’ve done or have started one of these apple core quilts – I hand pieced mine and now I really should get it finished – it’s such a neat one to try with all of those curves.
These hearts someone made for their very special Auntie – what a nice gift and can I say…from the heart.
Would this be considered a spin off of the kaleidoscope quilt – the one that you layer to get the results – I think this is the best interpretation I’ve seen of this quilt.
more amazing hand quilting – look how straight everything is lined up…
here’s the center block
This Japanese cherry blossom quilt has silk flowers and thread painting galore..
these silk flowers and beading centers was such a great quilt to look over and admire.
I thought this quilt was so neat – it actually looks like water and fish – she did such a great job love it – so different and unique.
Here’s a close up of one of the fish in, look at the quilting does it look like sea creatures to you?
There was this display towards the back of the gym and it has all of these mini’s on it – they must have taken a class to learn these technique as my sister and I were amazed
Look at the detail and the thread work
