MORE QUILT SHOW EYE CANDY…..THE VANCOUVER MODERN QUILT GUILD SHOW

I had been looking forward to this show for weeks. Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild held their first quilt show in  North Vancouver, BC on 27th & 28th August. I hope there will be more shows in the coming years as I enjoyed this one. It took me longer to drive there & back home than wander around looking at the quilts but it was nonetheless well worth the drive!

What is Modern Quilting and how is it different to traditional or other quilting? Check out this website for some explanation. 

Now for some more quilting eye candy…….as I realize you may not have been able to visit this great quilt show in person.  All quilts shown below give the name of the quilt and quilter. I tried my best to document this accurately as I took pics but if I made any errors, please notify me in the comment box below and I will gladly correct the error.

Orange QAYG by Paul Krampitz. Original design, Quilt as you Go Workshop by Marianne Haak.

Matt Wheeler created this incredible quilt using inspiration from Angela Walters’s Impracticality quilt.

Got a real surprize when i stood back from this quilt. Bit of a problem when I am peering close up at labels and I see this one: Ellen by Matt Wheeler. Im wondering why he called it Ellen. Is his Mom perhaps Ellen? Then I stand back for a pic of the whole quilt and it hits me between the eyes! Very clever technique. And, of course, I do like Matts work!
