Quilt BC – Kamloops – May 5, 2007

On May 5, 2007 our Quilt Guild chartered a bus to take us to Quilt BC in Kamloops. The National Juried Show was disappointing. I enjoyed the quilts in the smaller shows held elsewhere in town and the Trend-Tex Challenge more than the Juried show. We weren’t allowed to take pictures of the quilts in the Juried show show I can’t show you those quilts. I purchased the catalogue of quilts that were exhibited so that I would have pictures of the quilts but I have nothing to show you here.

There was a large merchants mall where I managed to find some items to bring home with me. 🙂

The fabric on the left was part of a kit to make place mats. The middle fabrics were bright and cheerful–simply irresistible. The fabrics on the right are fruits and vegetables. I was inspired by a BQ quilt in the Fall/Winter 2006 issue of Quilt Sampler. The quilt was featured in a shop in Tuscon, Arizona called The Quilter’s Market. I have scanned the photo just in case you don’t have access to the magazine. The photo is a little grainy but hopefully you can see the BQ quilt on the table done in vegetable and black and white fabrics.

I also found a cute crate of black and white fabrics and some Laurel Burch cat fabric that I couldn’t leave behind.

I also picked up a show pin and CQA thimble for my collection.

  1. Wow, they didn’t let you take pictures! I remember my days as Quebec Rep for the CQA. It was fun to have contact with the quilds. Funny, I didn’t have time to belong to one. Glad you were able to find some goodies! Looking forward to seeing what you do with them! Be well!
