Last week, my mom went to Quispamsis New-Brunswick to visit a quilting friend. It was also the week of the Kennebecasis Valley Quilt Show. My mom entered three quilts in the show. She got to see some great quilts and meet other quilters.
Her Coloured Wholecloth quilt won a 2nd place ribbon for non-traditional quilt. This quilt was quilted first, then coloured in with colouring pencils. Then she painted on a layer of textile medium. This is a method taught and used by Irena Bluhm.
I won a ribbon for best hand appliqué on our Mother Daughter Baskets. You can read more about this quilt here.
And my mom won People's Choice for her Roses quilt. This quilt is made up of blocks that my mom's Aunt Annette hand embroidered. My mom pieced them together and quilted it.
She had a great week.
