I Guess I Didn’t Win

….but just being able to admire all the beautiful work made me a winner

What am I talking about? Well a week ago I went to Neilson Park Creative Centre in Etobicoke (close to where I live) to take in the annual quilting show. At one end of the hall there was a table of prizes consisting of quilted items that had been donated by the members of the quilters’ guild. I purchased 10 tickets and chose where I wanted my tickets to go. Seeing that I haven’t received a phone call I can only assume that none of my tickets were pulled. Oh well, it doesn’t matter because I went there to see the beautiful hand and machine quilted blankets, coverlets, table runners and wall hangings. Here are a few selections that I managed to photograph.

March Square – Celebrating Canada’s 150th

,,,,,thanks to Becky B for hosting March Square

Some of the quilts at Friday’s quilting show at Neilson Park Creative Centre clearly had been made to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. This was the centre of a larger quilt and I’m wishing I had taken a photo of the entire piece.

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge – March 25, 2018

….thanks to Cee for hosting the Odd Ball Challenge

I loved this unusual little ballet dancer in the middle of the quilting show I attended on Friday. I think she qualified for the show because she was made with leftover quilting threads.
