Enjoy the show!
Kristin and Elizabeth took a turn as greeters!
Tarra co-ordinated the concession which included goods baked by our member volunteers. She and Kim are here with the goods!
The mini quilt display sponsored by Periwinkle Quilting & Beyond.
Our traveling quilt display was sponsored by the 440 Quilt Shop.
Five members completed their traveling quilts in time for the show. As explanation, traveling quilts started with a member providing a block and some guidelines that could range from very loose to very restrictive. Each month the quilt passed to a new member who would then add a block and pass it on next month until the quilt came back to the member who started it. Each member then had the fun of putting their quilt pieces all together. These are the results.
Lisa’s on the right.
Kim’s first traveling quilt.
Tarra’s. Here Tarra also models a dress she made.
Kim’s second traveling quilt.
Some of our coolest and youngest visitors had obvious favourites.
Because we don’t use drapes behind our quilts for the show, we get this wonderful effect of seeing many quilts at once.
If you have any questions about our show or any of the individual quilts, just contact us!
We have a few members who sew clothes in additional to quilts.
Tarra loves to sew clothes for herself and for her family. She’s wearing one of her dresses and she displayed several of the ones she’s made for herself and for her daughter.
Dyanne made the patchwork jacket below.
And then it was over!
We hope you’ve enjoyed the show and that you’ll plan to come to our 2018 show.

Thanks very much, Sammy! We appreciate your taking the time to give us a pat on the back!
Thanks for sharing photos of your beautiful quilt show. I enjoyed seeing everyone of them.
Thanks, Ginger! We appreciate your comment. I’m not going to go see if I can take a closer look at your small world quilt. It’s on my list of quilts to make!
This is so inspiring! Thank you for taking the time to share all these wonderful quilts! I’m just getting started teaching myself how to quilt, and I can feel lots of ideas brewing after seeing all of these.
All the best,
Thanks for the comment, Kim! Glad you enjoyed the show and have found some inspiration there. If you’re in the Saskatoon area, please come and check out our guild in the fall when we next meet. We have everyone from beginners to very experienced in the group and when I started quilting, I learned SO MUCH from this group!
Enjoyed to see Quilt Show quilts, Very nice colors and displays. I like to see the new generation picking up after us. Thank you for Sharing
