This past Saturday I attended Waterloo County Quilters' Guild's Quilt Show. If you go to the Guild's Facebook page, you can see photos of a few selections. I have to say that I was dazzled and inspired by the show.
As expected, Day 2 of the show, well... the vendors's selections were getting a little picked over, so there wasn't a lot that I was compelled to bring home - with the exception of a small selection of some Kim Diehl FQs, but I did discover a couple of new shops that I hadn't visited before. The FQs came from Creekbank Sewing Machine Shop in Mount Forest. Well...I used to be in Mount Forest once a week and never heard of this shop before! They will be my go-to resource for Kim Diehl fabrics - - which I will need to finish "Sprigs & Twigs" - - but more on that in a minute.
The second "new-to-me" LQS is Kalidoscope of Quilts from Exeter. This is a new store, and I understand, not at all related to another Exeter quilt shop (which I also really liked, but is now closed). Okay - - I have to get past the fact that someone intentionally spelled "kaleidoscope" wrong in the name of their shop - - but I can get beyond that quirk. I haven't been to Exeter in yeeeeears - but if I am in the neighbourhood, I will check it out.
Okay....speaking of "Sprigs & Twigs" - I finished the squares of the centre of this quilt. The original design calls for 16, but in order to get a larger finished size, I increased the number to twenty-five.
Tomorrow is the October meeting of the Waterloo County Quilters' Guild. Time is going to be tight - I have a meeting that is work-related after office hours - but I'm packing up tonight so I'm ready to participate in Show & Tell.
