The Celebrating Quilting at the Causeway Quilt Show and Sale is now a not too distant memory. We closed the doors of the show at the end of the day on Tuesday after six full days of celebrating quilting. Hundreds of folks entered the church to look at the quilts, buy some quilts and smaller crafted items, be inspired, and enjoy Cape Breton oatcakes, biscuits and tea.
We also had two quilts on frames so visitors were able to put their own stitches in the quilts. I couldn't resist taking a pic of hubby. He had brought me a coffee that day so I asked him to pose with the quilters for a pic. No, he is not a quilter, but he sure supports the quilting industry. Four ladies in the picture taught school with him so he stayed for tea, almost like hanging out with the staff at recess!
It was a very successful show for visitors, the quilters, crafters, and St. David's United Church. The 130-year old church will receive all the donations from the door and a percentage of each sale.
I took dozens of pictures almost every day and posted them on Facebook. If you'd like to see the quilts, please visit the facebook pages HERE to see more. Our quilt show and sale always takes place somewhere around the 13th of August, the anniversary of the Canso Causeway. Maybe we'll see you next year?
I am still rewinding after the show so haven't done much in my sewing room. In fact, I took a quick trip to see my sewing machine doctor who helped me with the tension on my machine for FMQ. I have a couple of quilt tops waiting to be quilted so I must get started. The first is my Super Nova Scotia quilt that you can read about HERE. All pinned and ready to go!
Although my sewing time has been limited lately, I did manage to finish another flannel quilt I will call Hugs 2. I had so many HSTs already from Hugs (you can read about Hugs HERE) so it was a no-brainer to make another! I have it laying out on the dining room table but I ran out of pins for basting. May have to look around to find more pins before supper so we can eat.
Thanks so much for visiting me today! It's a great day for quilting!
