Orillia Quilt Show

Here are a couple of my favourite quilts that were at the Orillia Guild's show. the first is a close up of a crazy quilt.  You can see the designer used lace and other embellishments to enhance the already wonderful fabric and stitchery.  the second photo is the quilt.
The final photo is a sampler that was, if my memory is correct, was hand pieced and quilted.
One of the reason's I especially liked this show was that beginners also displayed their work.  Another very nice touch was the music played for weary viewers/shoppers who were stopping for a cup of tea.
This show will be on my 'must see' list for the future.  I will post a couple more photos tomorrow.
