Festival Of Quilts - Heritage Park

I spent some time this weekend at the Heritage Park Festival of Quilts - our guild had a booth there (for the first time!) and I spent Sunday afternoon telling anyone that would listen all about the Calgary Modern Quilt Guild.

5 members of our guild brought quilts to display and it looked fabulous!!!

My two quilts are the scrappy trip on the bottom right and the black and white mini quilt (that I just finished and need to blog about - its VERY neat!).   I was so honoured that my quilts were displayed along side some beautiful quilts and didn't look like something out of a Home Ec class - I'm getting better!!!

I spent the majority of my time at the booth but I did manage to sneak out and take a quick look around but I totally forgot to take lots of pictures! That being said two quilts really stood out and I had to break out the ol' iPhone to show you all.

I found this yo yo quilt at one of the guild booths, they said a 92 year old lady makes these quilts:

It looked like such a happy quilt to snuggle up under or to put up on display.

This Gargoyle quilt was displayed across from our guild booth.  After kind of starting at it for at least two hours I had to get up and take a closer look, it was all machine appliqued with  an insane amount of machine stitching all over the entire thing.  It was incredible!

Sadly thats all the pictures I took - next year hopefully I'll have a quilt or two in the show and I'll bring my big camera and can do the festival justice by taking some pictures of it to share.

Thanks for stopping by - see you soon.


  1. I typically go to Heritage Park every year, but I had to sit out this time for my daughter's birthday party. I was originally going to sit and the table for the Lethbridge Guild, but we didn't get a spot this year. Maybe I'll see you next year!


  2. I've gotta get it done because I won't have the opportunity tο get it done other ωіse!
