Moose Jaw Quilt Show


In my last post I mentioned the outdoor quilt show in Moose Jaw. This is what we saw as we entered the park. It was my first outdoor show and I was very impressed. The quilts looked so nice in the bright dappled sunshine.


There were a lot of quilts hanging on clotheslines stretched from tree to tree.



This is the back of one vendor's booth.


This Celtic Knot was amazing. This is the front.


This is the back. It started out as all mottled gray. The color is entirely from the quilting.


Here is a detail of the intricate quilting on the background. I think I liked the back even more than the front!

Isn't that a great way to see quilts -- just flapping in the breeze!

I'd love to see an outdoor display like this. Wonderful.

I always wonder how stressed out the people are who put these together and have no idea of what the weather will be like. Looks like they had perfect weather for this one.

I am with you...the back on that quilt is amazing!

I love outdoor quilt exhibitions. The colours look so vibrant! Love the quilting on that celtic knot quilt. I think the background quilting is known as 'McTavishing'. I can't believe how much quilting (and thread) went into that one quilt!

I'd love to be able to see an outdoor quilt show - we'd never manage it here in the UK - after the first five quilts were hung we'd have to drag 'em all back in again out of the rain! I'm afraid a line of washing gets dizzy here the number of times it gets pegged out and taken back in again!

Talk about timing! Serendipity.

The quilts look amazing out in the open! Thanks for the pictures, Joyce. ;-)
