Red Deer Quilt show

Today I when to Red Deer for their annual quilt show. It made for a nice day out. I was surprised how long I was there, time seemed to fly by. Thought I would share a couple of my favorite quilts.

I have the pattern for this first quilt and I even have fabric picked out, one of these years will make it. I like how they graded the fabric from dark to light.

Of course I loved the kitty cat quilt. I really like the colour used in this quilt.

This next quilt reminder me of the type of quilt a friend would make, she really likes curved piecing.

I loved how simple this next quilt was and the great way it showed case a group of fabric, I think I even have some of the fabric in it, left over from my Australian log cabin quilt.

I keep the shopping to the minimum, its hard to shop for lots when I have so little time to quilt at the moment. I did pick up some fabric for the mason jar table runner I am planning on making. Was very glad to run into the other girl who also won the pattern and fabric at the Millarville show as was wanting to trade with her and we have both purchased the same fabrics. Where we have picked them up from was nice enough to let us trade so we both now have different fabric. Show she a good person to trade with as we both have similar taste.
