Autumn Dyes by Krista Hennebury
On Saturday, I spent a lovely afternoon in North Van at the Lions Gate Quilters' Guild show. After a little cell phone tag and some mistaken identities (apparently Sarah and I look quite similar in our avatars), three members of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild managed to find each other! I enjoyed meeting new quilting friends and viewing the 250 quilts on show with them.
It was exciting to chat about modern quilting and meet new people who were interested in the modern quilt guild I'm starting. I handed out flyers and recruited a few new members who want to come to our first meeting on Thursday the 17th!
I'll let the quilts speak for themselves. I've posted many more quilt pictures to my flickr account.

The clapboard siding details were breathtaking!

I loved this bike!
1930s Scrap Zigzag by Paula Bohan
What "cheerful" looks like by Anne Field
This was my favourite quilt from the show. What patience!
This quilt was aptly named, the pieces were incredibly tiny and there were hundreds of them!
My haul from the members' boutique and vendors
Of course, I bought a few things at the show, I had to support the guild and vendors, right? I love my new potholder by Krista Hennebury! I also picked up some Heather Bailey (I'm thinking I'll use it to make a striped binding), Denyse Schmidt and Sandi Henderson fat quarters, a Lecien fat quarter with cute French writing ("bon journée!'), and a skirt pattern. Now I'll have to sign up for the next A-line Skirt class that Spool of Thread offers (their June class is sold out!).
