There is no photography of the quilts in the National Juried Show. :( *Edited: CQA put up a gallery of the National Juried Show quilts though!* Wow, the quilts were amazing! I picked up a catalogue so I could take the inspiration with me. Yes, that's my quilt in the catalogue! I got some lovely emails from people who saw it in the show too. You guys are awesome!
We saw the National Juried Show, the Invitational Show, the Fibre Arts Network Show and the Niagara Modern Quilt Guild Show. What a feast for the eyes!
***The following photos and projects are not my own, but I've put in links to the original images and/or creators where possible. If for any reason you do not want your project featured here, please email me and I'll remove it.***
I was in awe of so many of the quilts, but here are a couple of my favourites from the other shows:
|Jacob's Arrows by Heather Bennett-Chamberlain|
|Fifties Flare - Representational (Left) - Valerie Wilson, Abstract (Right) - Brandy Maslowski|
No quilt show would be complete without a visit to the Merchant Mall, right? In addition to all the goodies available for purchase, there was plenty of quilt inspiration too:
Innova Longarm Quilting Systems:
The Running Stitch:
|That's my awesome sister! :)|
JP's Quilt Studio - Stoney Creek, ON:
After the shows, my sis, mom and I met the guys and the kids at Niagara Falls. We couldn't pass up the kids' first visit to the Falls without taking a ride on the Hornblower.

I was glad we saved the visit to the Niagara Falls for after the shows because this is Mother Nature's idea of what my hair should look like. LOL!
