Quilts and more. . .

Where to begin! It was an interesting weekend at the Ricky Tims Quilt Seminar. 320 people were registered for this event. Each of the instructors had some of their books and patterns for sale. Ricky Tims also had lots of his hand dyed fabrics available.

The Pine Needles Sewing Centre, the Bernia Sewing Machines representative, had a variety of machines on display. There were lots of deals for anyone in the market for a new machine. Photos of the shop will be posted soon. What a fabulous place!

Here are some photos from the quilt show with more to follow another day. The first two belong to Alex Anderson. I believe the one with all the applique will be on the Quilt Show web site as a pattern to do in the fall. It's a beautiful piece.

The next two belong to Ricky Tims. You can recognize his caveman technique of cutting without a ruler. I rather like this technique. You should see his method of cutting strips of fabrics!!!

The last three belong to Pam Holland. I was intrigued with her use of cheese cloth in the faces art quilts. I use my hand dyed cheese cloth for mountains and hills as backgrounds in some of my pieces.

  1. I love the beauty and diversity of these pieces. You might already know about Mary Pal, but if you don't you should check out her work with cheesecloth. Thanks for sharing the quilts.
