This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the largest biennial quilt show in Quebec. There was a wealth of beautiful work on display and I thought I’d share a bit of the eye candy with you today. There was quite a range of styles, as one would expect. These are just a few that caught my attention. Enjoy!
My friend, Agnes Wong with her lovely “Swooning” quilt. I love her fabric combinations that make your eye dance around the quilt.
Our guild’s president, Cinzia Allocca’s stunning “I Don’t Wear Blue”. She does improv quilting so, so well.
Deborah Kemball. All hand appliqued & yes, hand quilted. Gorgeous! And the first photo is only about a quarter of the whole quilt!
This beauty is by the amazing Josee Carrier, our guild’s vice-president. She is an engineer by training and her work always blows me away. Her accuracy, her quilting (I believe she quilts all her pieces herself) and her fabric choices are always superb.
Another of Josee’s pieces with a closeup to inspire me in my quilting training.
Simple and so pretty, all those little bright squares. Happy, happy. A group piece by Les Courtepointiers (“quilters” in french … I still can’t say it properly) d’Asbestos.
A detail of some black and white by Lucie Robichaud.
Lovely sashiko work. I foolishly did not capture the artist’s name in the photo, so unfortunately cannot tell you who did it, nor the next one, which I love for its graphic nature and its unexpectedness. There’s just something about it that calls to me.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing just a bit of what great talent there is in my backyard.
