YRQG of Toronto Quilt Show
I hope you will join me on Saturday September 20th and Sunday September 21st for the Yorkshire Rose Quilters’ Guild of Toronto quilt show.
The quilt show will feature quilts from our very talented guild members. There will be both traditional and modern quilts featured. I have seven pieces in the show, including Icterine Strata I blogged about here. This piece won third place at the Canadian Quilters’ Association Juried show earlier this summer!
Here is a glimpse of some of my quilts you will see at the show:
Midnight Blooms is an original design. It is machine pieced and long arm quilted. Large stylized flowers are raw edge appliquéd to the top. The design was inspired by a piece of Art Deco wallpaper.
Plumage is based on marble tile design that my sister used in her renovated bathroom. The quilt is machine pieced and long arm quilted. The focus fabric is fussy cut to showcase the beautiful birds.
Floral Bouquet is a small wallhanging. Three dimensional flowers are arranged into a lovely bouquet hand tied with satin ribbon. It is machine quilted.
Village at Dusk is a triptych arranged onto a quilted mat. It is improvisationally pieced and machine quilted.
Morning Meadow wallhanging is improvisationally pieced and machine quilted. The piece is beautifully framed with a quilted matting.
These photographs are detail shots of some of the pieces I have in the quilt show. In order to see the quilts in their entirety, you will need to come out and visit the show Saturday Sept. 20th to Sunday Sept. 21st.
Quilts for Purchase
Some of the quilts on display are being offered for sale, (including a few of mine). This is a great opportunity to purchase a one of kind quilt for yourself or as a Christmas gift.
Bring a friend, enjoy the quilts, have a lovely tea, browse the merchant’s mall, and be inspired!
