Quilt Show

This weekend began with the first quilt show of the weekend. Here we are on our way to Red Deer for the show.

Someone was quite successful on their Easter egg hunt. Here you see a pile of tractor eggs all stacked up and painted green for Easter.

Every time I see a quilt like this it catches my eye. It seems that there will be one in my future at some point.

This one was interesting and we saw it done in a couple of different colour schemes. It's not a pattern I would expect to change much, but it did.

I just had to take a picture of this one for chookyblue. For some strange reason I think of her every time I see chickens. :)

This one makes me think of stained glass windows. I actually have pictures of some interesting windows that I took from last summer's vacation that I was intending to do something similar with. It's even more amazing to see in real life. Her fabric choices are wonderful.

This is a Raven. I figure I can't have a Canadian quilt blog without a little Canadian content. :) I'd be interested in knowing if this one came from a pattern or if it was the quilter's creation.

I really had no intentions of buying anything. Honest! Well, maybe some white-on-white if I found any that I liked, but that was about it. Well, intentions and reality didn't even come close. I found some interesting red & white fabrics. I pick them up when I see interesting ones. I have plans for a red & white in my future and when I started collecting, it was really tough to find them.

As you can see, my charm pack obsession increased a little.

This book and these patterns. Well, they just jumped into my arms, so I had to. They would have created too big a fuss if I didn't take them home. Besides, I needed some patterns for the charm squares. :)
