The Quilt Show Continued

Thunder Bay Quilters' Guild Logo

This Banner hung over the Guild Merchandise Booth.

I took a few more picture today of the beautiful quilts.

This is a beautiful Stained Glass wall hanging. 
One day I will make one of these.

A Striking Quilt

I'd like to find a pattern for this table topper
If anyone out there in Blog land has a pattern,
could you

The Thunder Bay Quilter's Guild
30th Anniversary Banquet

Last night was the Banquet to celebrate the quilt show.

The highlight of the evening was the guest speaker.
Paulette Eccleston
She is a quilter and teacher who has been teaching and designing patterns for her own
classes since 1992.

What a treat she had in store for us.

She brought 30 of her 100 quilt tops.  None were quilted so they were easy
to transport since she came from Kamloops, B.C.

Her specialty is scrap quits and often does not use the same fabric
twice in one quilt.
These were large bed quilts so needless to say she had a lot of
scraps and fabric.

Strips sewn into blocks

Strips again but forming a very unique block.

A beautiful use of lights and darks.

I love the green in this one.
Very effective.

Every year she makes a Valentine Quilt.

Half Square Triangles in Lights and Darks.

I think the Quilt Show this year was a great success with all the work that went into it from the many volunteers and the Vendors that came out.  There were vendors from Thunder Bay, Red Lake, Kenora, Sioux Lookout, and Stonewall Manitoba.
