Time Flies!

 It's June! Almost July!

I have just come back from Quilt Canada in Vancouver.  

This is a show that highlights the best juried quilts across Canada.  If you have a quilt you'd like to submit, you fill in the application at the beginning of the year.  If the Jury (experts in quilting) deems it the best of the best, you get to submit it and have it professionally judged and shown at this yearly show.  I have not had a quilt accepted yet, but hope to one day.  

This was the Best in Show quilt



The detail in her work is AMAZING!  Quilted and thread painted, including beading, then cut out around the beading.  WOW! 




The show changes location each year and is held in the month of June.  This year was in Vancouver at the Convention Centre in downtown Vancouver.  Next year is in Halifax, Nova Scotia!  


Here is my remade quilted jean jacket I finished in time to wear to this show.  I got to meet Dawn Piasta in person after chatting with her online for a year....



I had so much fun!  Do come to a Quilt Canada if you are ever able!  SO worth it!

Hugs!
