Thousand Islands Quilters' Guild Quilt Show June 2009

As mentioned in an earlier post back in July our quilt guild had our quilt show at the end of June. Our guild had a lot of positive comments about the display of quilts, quality of work and presentation of the show. We had lots of vendors on had to supply all our "needs" and everyone was very happy with the show in general.

I will include over the next while some photos from the show.

The first picture I wanted to share with you (above) is a picture of my friend Jeannette Catchpaugh with her prize winning quilt. This quilt was made by her and it is a pattern from Country Heirlooms out of Louisa, VA. The quilt is hand appliqued and machine pieced by Jeannette and then machine quilted by me.

Jeannette won Viewers Choice Best Bed Quilt Appliqued at our quilt show in June (2009). Jeannette also had the honour of receiving the Canadian Quilters Association Rosette for this quilt in the Viewers Choice Best Quilt Overall category. Congratulations Jeannette!

The second photo is a close-up of the applique work and some of the quilting. I had done some hearts on a quilt for Jeannette previously and she asked if I could include something similar on this quilt. We were both very happy with how it turned out. If you click on the photo you can see a better close-up image of the applique work and quilting design.
