Sometimes a quilt will have lovely details that show the craft its maker put into it. Here are a few such details I saw at Quilt Canada.
A rocky island made with wool roving. The boards on the lighthouse are about a quarter inch wide. The flag on the door is a nice touch.
Extreme matchstick quilting.
A town in the middle of a dust storm done with stitching.
Faces possibly painted and then stitched around.
A lovely appliqued ship. The half square triangles are tiny.
An old key caught behind organza.
The moon reflected in clouds.
Charming challenge fabric quilt that doesn’t have straight edges. I applaud the creative use of these somewhat challenging fabrics.
This post concludes my report of the 2016 Quilt Canada show. Today, July 1, is Canada Day, which I thought was fitting. The 2017 show will be held at the International Centre in Toronto, Canada, as well.
