The Edmonton & District Quilt Guild has about 300 members. This year is our 30th Anniversary, so the show was larger than usual. I didn't take many photos, but thought I'd share a few with you.
This first one is a Chinese mask, three-dimensional and heavily embellished. It is about 16" across, made by Wanda Cracknell. If I had an idol in the quilting world, it would be this highly imaginative woman.
The other one is about 24 - 30" square, quilted by domestic machine. The crosshatch in the middle has lines about 1/4" apart. There are no flaws in this quilt. It is perfect... and totally intimidating. I had the quiltmaker's name but cannot find it. Be sure to examine her feathers... she has holly leaves in them!
And this is what I'm working on today. I made this as one of those mystery quilts that required using up stash, so combined a couple of unlikely fabrics. In case you cannot see them, I am quilting leaves all over it, from 1/2" to about 1 1/2" long. This is my "practice controlling that machine" quilt because the next one is more important to me, and my chosen design will take some control.
It is hot and dry here. We need rain! I'm glad for AC this weekend, and cannot believe that we had snow last Saturday.
