Summer of 2015 - July - Part one

July started out with a beautiful display at Addies Creative Fabrics . . . each July 1st, the Big Hill Springs Quilt Guild puts on a "veranda" display at Addies.  It was a gorgeous day for viewing many gorgeous quilts. . . . I took a photos of some of my faves, but certainly not all the quilts.  They were all beautiful!

I don't have the names of the quilters . . . but I hope you enjoy the pictures.






 

 
So, that was just a sample of the quilts at the Veranda show - what a great way to celebrate Canada Day!  I look forward to it every year  :)
 
 
Then, I packed my overnight bag and headed up the QE2 to Edmonton to spend two days at Sparrow Studioz with the amazingly talented Lisa Calle.  Here are some pictures of Lisa's quilting . . . small but mighty!
 




 
 
If you ever get a chance to see Lisa's work - I guarantee you'll be amazed!!!
 
 
So, while I was at Sparrow Studioz, I took a look around at some of the quilting eye candy on the walls . . .

Sample of Karlee Porter's Graffiti Quilting . . . !!!!!
 

 and then I looked around at the d├ęcor - pillows with amazing quilting designs!
 
 

 
 When I got home, I did up a sampler of quilting designs - inspired by Lisa Calle's classes - and started on my own design for my Mexican Star wall hanging . . . it's not finished yet, but will be soon.
 
 




 
 
 
...... and that's just part one of July . . . it's been a busy summer at the Little House!
