2015 KRQ Quilt Show Photos

Our quilt show was a great success with just under 500 attendees. Our volunteers worked tirelessly for the planning, set-up, during the show and then for the take down.  Special thanks to the organizing committee: Christa, Darcy, Elaine, Marilyn, Melanie, Ruth, Toni and Janet; as well as all those that donated their time during the event!

This page offers a few of the photos from the event but all of the photos can be viewed by clicking here.

The People’s Choice Award was won by Donna N for “Picking Up the Pieces”. Honourable mentions went to Christa G for “Over the Top” and Darcy A for “Cottage Beauty”. The Junior Quilters Award went to Brynn Anderson.

2015 Winning Quilts
Donna Neilson
“Picking up the Pieces”:  At a yard sale I attended years ago I bought a plastic bread bag of fabric "scraps" for 50 cents.  I found it was packed with 10 complete Dresden plate quilt appliqu├ęs and 3 dozen cut-out butterflies, in fabrics reminiscent of the 1940s and 50s.  Also included were hundreds & hundreds of ovals already cut out though from more recent materials.  To expand on the tremendous amount of work someone had already done, I designed this quilt to incorporate as many of the pieces as I could.  Hence the title.

Darcy Anderson
“Cottage Beauty”:  This pattern was in an American Patchwork and Quilting magazine a few years ago - a Pat Sloan pattern.  I decided to make it scrappy.  This is my first "New York Beauty" style quilt.  I decided to try out some Free Motion Quilting designs on this quilt from Leah Day's website.  As you can see, each block is done with a combination of different designs.  It was a long process to make this quilt, but it was definitely well worth the effort!

Christa Gunn
“Over the Top”:  A companion piece to "Imagination".  Since I don't like to make the same quilt again and I really like embroidery work, I tried a type of "crazy" quilting embroidery in cotton - this is it.  Inspired by Pauline Love's Program a few years ago where each one of us had to make a patch for a crazy quilt.  This quilt took about 2 1/2 years.


Junior Quilter Award: Brynn created this as part of our challenge project.
