I am one of the organizers for Quilts at the Creek… a truly wonderful outdoor quilt show held every year at Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto. And here is a link to photos I took at the show. This is the first view you had this year as you entered..
Here are some of MY quilts from the show – but not all! The rest I am saving for future blog posts… so stay tuned. (click on images for close-ups!)
And here are two really talented quilters whose work blew me away:
Some other quilts I loved: made by friends, scrappy quilts, applique, and more:
And last but DEFINITELY not least, some of my favourites by Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession, who gave 5 days of workshops, as well as a trunk show. Fabulous!
Kathy Doughty, of Material Obsessions, will be in Toronto this summer doing 4 days of workshops, along with a trunk show/lecture. She is being hosted by Quilts at the Creek, and you can find out about this fabulous outdoor show (and enter a quilt or two!) on their blog. I have always been totally impressed with her bold mix of patterns, colours and fabric styles all in one quilt.
I may not be as brave as her, but she was the inspiration for these two quilts. The first is Soul Searching (from her book “Making Quilts with Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession)”.
The second quilt is from her Super Nova pattern in “Adding Layers: Colour Design and Inspiration”. My version is mostly blue florals and looks way better in person. Choosing the fabrics and putting it all together went very smoothly, one of the quickest quilts I have made. Just need to decide what backing to use. Hmmmm.
They will both be on display at Quilts at the Creek- see you there!
