Festival of Quilts Calgary 2017

May 29, 2017   /   byKerry  / Categories :  Feeds

So today I have to go and collect my horse quilt from the show because it finished yesterday. I didn’t take a whole bunch of pictures, but I thought you might like to see these ones. It was HOT there and we didn’t hang around for too long, and I didn’t even buy anything- really! Alex was with me and the trading tents were unbearable to be in so that will be why!

The first quilt I saw and liked – it’s by Vanecea Greene (I took lots of photos of her quilts last year if you wanted to search back for them)

Another Vanecea Greene quilt – that background is solid purple with exquisite quilting in white over the top!

Hannah Wellens’ Pixel Puppy

Mi Hee Park’s Mountain Greener Deer (pattern by Pam Bono)

This is very Calgary. Sharon Hanna’s Boot Scootin’

Oh hello, what’s this quilt all on its own…?

It’s miiiiine!
