Comox Valley Exhibition – Quilts

35 Comments

Some of you may remember that my friend Gladys entered her quilt in a local show in May. She has shown  it again this past week in the Comox Valley Exhibition. It has ribbons beside it now for Best of Show. So much intricate work went into the making of this quilted wall hanging. Each of the flowers represents a province or territory of Canada. Gladys made the quilt in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday. Congratulations to Gladys on her well-deserved ribbons.I’m sorry I don’t know much of the story behind the other quilts but I can admire them for their creators’ skill and imagination. The second prize quilt is featured here (below). I must mention that there were several categories so there is probably another 2nd prize quilt as well, but I can only show you the ones I  photographed.

Third prize is a clothesline with individual tiny quilts hanging on the line.

Another category’s 3rd prize winner is the cow quilt below.

The show had so many quilts I couldn’t possibly post them all, but you have a glimpse of what the exhibition had to offer. It was a feast for the eyes.

  1. Quilts always put me in awe of their creators. Like these, they can be incredibly beautiful. I have one that has been in the family for nearly a hundred years and consider it a real treasure.

  4. Gladys’ quilt is amazing. Please pass on my congratulations. The clothesline quilt is so cute! And I like the coast to coast theme. The cow one makes me think of my dad.

    • They are always coming up with new creative ideas. What I really admire about this quilter’s guild is the charity work they do. They are constantly supplying quilts and placemats to institutions that help the needy. So much time goes into that effort and they do it with love.

  10. These are beautiful! The clothesline one is my favorite! That’s so clever. Although, I would not have wanted to do it! I tried quilting about five years ago; I made a couple of little ones, then let the supplies sit around for about a year or so, then sold them. It is NOT for me! 😉
