Heritage Park Quilt Show

This weekend was the Heritage Park quilt show here in Calgary. LM and I went Saturday afternoon and the weather was perfect. This year a lot more of the quilts were outside and the ones in the houses were mainly on the main level. This made it a lot easier to get around and see the quilts with a little one in tow. There was also a lot more none quilter at the park than I had see other years, but I think this was due to the beautiful weather.
This was the first year that I has not entered any quilts, will have to make sure I have one to put in next year, but I thought I would share a few quilts made by some of the girls in the guild I belong to.

I just love this Mariner's Compass, I think I have even show it on my blog before. I think the amount of work that when into this quilt is amazing.
The centre quilt is the one I am showing here, this was a pattern taught at quilt, a lot of the girls make this, and they all looked so different.
I love this star wall hanging. The girl who made it did 4 blocks but decided that it looked better as 3 and I agree. She gave me the last block (mainly as it was purple and we all know that I love purple)
I will share a few more photos from the show in the next few days.

Great pictures! I want to make a Mariner's Compass quilt someday. I have made one star and it is a challenging project for sure, but the quilts are just amazing.

One day I really want to go to that quilt show. My sister lives very close to that park and I have heard that it is a lovely quilt show.

I hear you are having great weather there. Unfortunately I am not going to be able to make my usual trek to Calgary this July. I am so disappointed. Maybe August or Sept.
