Quilts At The Creek

August 2, 2012

Last week I travelled down to Toronto for Quilts At The Creek (more on that later). First was a stop in Woodstock where Anna got to spend a few days with Grandma & Grandpa. On Thursday night I headed over to St. Thomas where Gail was hosting a fabric party. There was a lovely show & tell, refreshments, and of course, plenty of fabric!! Check out the pics on Gail’s blog. It was a lot of fun, and 10% of the evening’s sales are going to the Elgin Piecemakers to buy fabric for their charity quilts.

Next stop was Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto. Thankfully the weather co-operated and the rain cleared away for a beautiful Saturday morning. The quilts were already hanging by the time I got there to set up – they looked amazing scattered throughout the village. A dedicated group of volunteers from the York Heritage Quilters Guild as well as the Black Creek staff were responsible for making the first annual Quilts At The Creek event a great success. I had time to take a few pics with my cell phone (apologies for some blurries) of some favorites.

There were about 130 quilts on loan from local quilters, as well as a display from Quilts of Valour Canada of quilts made for injured Canadian military. And of course, there was a very nice merchant mall for those who wanted to get out of the sun and do a little shopping.

I’m already looking forward to next year’s event!

    Hi, we met at Black Creek, I mentioned the strawberry bag I was working on. I posted a photo of the bag here using the remnant I purchased. Have a great day!
