The Canadian Quilters Association had their big yearly quilt show, Quilt Canada, this week in Toronto.
I was there for the day on Thursday taking a class on quilt judging. This was a class if you want to become a quilt show judge, but it was also for people, like me, that enter quilts into juried quilt shows. I got a lot of information from the teachers on what judges look like in a quilt, so that advise was amazing!
I had a few minutes at lunch and then 1 hour after class to run through the quilt show to do a bit of shopping and see the quilts. Here are a few of my favourites.
Improv Untitled- Krista Hennebury, North Vancouver BC
Burrard- Susan Purney Mark, Victoria BC
Captured Moments- Marianne Haak, St. Albert AB
March On- Cheryl Arkison, Calgary AB
Eclipse- Terry Aske, Vancouver BC
We The North Since 1867- Michele-Renee Charbonneau, Ottawa ON
Round Peg, Square Hole- Krista Hennebury, North Vancouver BC
Cumulative Effect- Stacey Lee O’Malley, Ottawa, ON
The Ottawa MQG had a special exhibit as well and here are some of their guild member’s quilts.
It was a rushed trip and I wonder if I spent more time in traffic driving through Toronto than I did at the quilt show?
