Rain Rain Go Away - Quilt Canada 2014 June St. Catharines

We have had cool days and lots of rain. I am not sure where our "Summer" has gone. Shadow seems to be feeling better. I love her so much, I hate to see her unwell.

I don't have much of my own work to share today so I thought I might show you a few of the quilts that I thought were really beautiful at Quilt Canada this year.  Two of my friends and I went to St. Catharines this year for the week. It was fabulous. I was not able to take any pictures of the National Juried Show as no cameras were allowed. However I was able to take photos of Invitational Show which I believe are Quilts made by most of the teachers.

Me at my class making Sheer Card Quilt Art

This Gorgeous Quilt is made by Kathy Wylie, Author of a book called Sewflakes the three picture below are close up of this work of art.

This was all hand quilted.
Yesterday today and tomorrow?

Close up

This Lady has several Quilt in the show this is a close up of another quilt with the biggest of her 3D Eagles. It was unbelieveable. 

The three picture above are of Yesterday today and tomorrow. The Eagle above was 3D and not to be believed.

The four pictures above are of the quilt A Cooperative effort. It was not to be believed. Renske Helmuth has yet again brought together a group of ladies who all worked on this quilt. It was put together as a Quilt as you go and will be sold at the Mennonite Relief Sale. Some of her work with these women have sold for literally tens of thousands of dollars.  
These are just a few of the fabulous quilts. I will show you more in the next few days.

WOWZERS! Those quilts are amazing. The styles sure have changed since the days when my grandmother won all the red ribbons at the Peterborough Exhibition year after year.
