North Vancouver quilt show and a few finishes!

I am finishing up some projects and actually crossing things off my list of what I want to get accomplished in June.

On Saturday, my quilting buddy and I headed to North Vancouver to the Lion's Gate quilt show and I will share some of the quilts that caught my eye for one reason or another.  Sometimes it is because I have the pattern, like the use of fabric or it is a great scrap quilt.

 A great scrap quilt... 5" squares, snowballed?
 How simple but effective?
 Love the churndashes, a variety of sizes
2 strip quilts and I have the pattern for one of these but the other would be easy to figure out. 
 And I have this ruler to make this twisted quilt.
 Love the wavy folded trim in this.  Inspiration for a busy block for a friend with memory issues.

The simplicity of this is wonderful.

I have finished a tumbler quilt, used the blocks as leaders and enders last year and finally got it quilted this year.  A UFO that isn't too old, only from last summer but still, finished is better than having it sit as a top, waiting for me to get around to it.

I made a few pillowcases for the kids at burn camp.  Already had made some but this fabric was perfect.
 And I quilted a top that Penny gave me for Quilts of Valour and got the binding and a label added.

Then I loaded my Cool Water by Villa Rosa designs onto my B-line and quilted this one... a new UFO from last December but again, finished!
And then more pillowcases for some boys at burn camp. And one pillowcase for someone who goes hunting for the elusive moose... maybe my husband?  Or maybe a friend.
And an idea for those of you that want to donate a Quilt of Valour quilt and have some plain pillowcases to go with it.  I added a strip of O Canada fabric to the pillowcase to jazz it up a little.  Simple but effective?
Playing with my phone trying to see if I can add photos to my blog using google pictures.  These are added the old fashioned way, by uploading from camera to computer but I am willing to learn something new if it means pictures will load faster.  This was painfully slow to load up these pictures this afternoon.

  1. Hope the quilt show pictures weren't overwhelming to look at but I like to be able to 'go back' to an older post and see what I thought was inspiring.
