CQA/ACC National Juried Show winners...

Few of our members had the chance to attend Quilt Canada 2014, the CQA/ACC conference in St. Catherines ON.  If you have ever attended a Quilt Canada, you know that the quilts on display are just "blow your mind awesome." Photos hardly do them justice. But for those of us who could not attend in person, we'll have to be satisfied with photos. Click here to see all the 2014 National Juried Show Winners. If you click on the first photo, you will see a larger view, and there is a "next" button in the top right corner of each photo.
I provided a link a few posts back, to the Trend Tex Challenge Show as well, but just in case you missed it, here it is again. It's always interesting to see what a number of different people do with the same five pieces of fabric.
Quilt Canada 2015 will take place in Lethbridge Alberta. It's not too early to start making plans to attend...

Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow quilters! It's a warm one here today in Freddy Beach, currently 31°C - that's 89°F. Whew! Pass the icewater!  Since we're all waving our beautiful red and white Canadian flags today, I thought it might be fun to look back at some of the red and white quilts we have made over the last few years.... (okay, I cheated a little bit as some have one more color as well)
