Yes. my guilty pleasure is quilting

Quilt Walk and Car Show

Hanging, hanging, hanging. Val, HP, John and Joan on Day 3 of 4 putting the clothesline up for the outdoor quilts, which will go up on Sunday.  John, HP, Joan and Val enjoying a  liitle refreshment to keep our stamina up. And to cool down.  The weather is gorgeous and the temperature is 28 degrees.  Mighty hot out there.  Now for some of the gorgeous quilts that so many talented people allowed us  to share with others.  This in an incredibly detailed star pattern.  The picture does not do it justice.

Very cute I Spy Quilt

Any Harry Potter fans out there.

A really nice good-bye quilt made for a very special friend and quilter

.This quilt is called “Pots”.  How aptly named

.Strip piecing by my friend Joan

.Now is that a blue beauty or what??

This is a wool quilt that is beautifully done.

Pretty yellow flowers.  A little ray of sunshine.

Cinco de Mayo, a New York beauty, I think that says it all.

Nice heh!

!These cute little ladybugs were made by Wendy who used to work at the Quilted Bear.

Larry’s quilt.  Another beauty!!

A favourite of mine.  This picture does not do it justice.  There is amazing thread work done in this picture.  Cute, cute snowmen.

Another favorite of mine.  Mind you Christmas is my all time favourite time of year.  I love the way the tree has been framed in the window..Hagrid, for all you fans.  Isn’t he just so cool!!! This gem was made by Joan’s sister, Val.  What a talent she has.The ladies from the Boundary Bay Quilters Guild selling tickets on the raffle quilt and advertising their quilt show Oct 2 and 3, 2010. This quilt was called “Otto’s Family”.  A real story quilt.

I like this one.  Will have to put it on my bucket list.

Cats, cats… All hand done..

Christmas, buggy barn, much cutenss, a definite one for me to make

.Cars and people and quilts, oh my!!

Time to relax.  The work is done for the day.
