North Hastings Quilt Show 2014

This is the first quilt show I have been involved in. The ladies of Bancroft and area sure now how to put on a great show. Everyone involved from the kitchen to the actual show, gave it all they got. 

The result was excellent. We had a steady number of visitors both Saturday and Sunday. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. The large quilt display was beautifully hung with an excellent variety of works. 

This is the miscellanious area, where placemats, pillows and much more were displayed. The club challenges were here as well. The one you see here is the shape challenge. Can you figure out which shape dominated in each one of the above 5 quilts?

Here I am chatting with the club president Marion Heasman. She can be very satisfied with how everything went as chair of the show. 

Here is the challenge for 4. Each person was given a panel of a tree and were to bring it back completed after 6 months. Exceptionally beautiful works..........and such creative ways to use a panel!

Here I am looking at one of my personal favorites in the large quilt section. No its not my own but sure wish it was!

A number of the quilts were for sale. I put one of my 11 quilts up for sale and sold it! The pink and green one is it. So happy to send it along to a little girl who loves pink.

And the winner of this year's raffle quilt is..........a lady from Manitoba. We make a quilt at the club (this one is hand quilted) and raffle one off at each show. 100% of the monies made goes back into the local community. You can see by the tickets in the large box to the left that we sold lots of tickets!
What a show. Thanks to all who could make it out to enjoy the show. Already thinking ahead to 2016.
