Assiniboine Circle Quilt Show

Have you ever found that your quilting inspiration has vanished? That question was asked by someone on one of my FB groups last week.

This is a non-quilt show year for my guild – the Manitoba Prairie Quilters, but there are a number of smaller guilds in the area holding their spring Quilt Shows. I had the pleasure of visiting Assiniboine Circle Quilt Show last weekend and there was certainly no lack of inspiration there.

We were greeted at the door with this cheerful little quilt and display.

This quilt was made from a selection of very colourful hankies.

Pretty Little Hankies

Made and quilted by Diane Gantzel

This is one of the nicer wedding quilts that I have seen. Such a simple and effective way to capture the well wishes of wedding guests.

Christmas is never out of season. Just look at all those 3-D legs!

This quilt was started (and obviously finished!) just 13 days before the Quilt Show.

I have to give you a close-up of this embroidery project.

This rag-quilt would provide continuous inspiration with personally selected quotes from favorite books and authors.

Some beautiful quilting is being done on domestic sewing machines these days.

This quilt won Viewer’s Choice (sorry for the quality of the photo).

I love the modern look of this quilt, quilted by my favorite Long-Armer.

Here is another quilt that highlights the quilting – done on a linen tablecloth purchased at a thrift store for $10.

The inspiration for this small wall-hanging was a napkin. How cute is that!

That was just a sampling. There were so many more lovely quilts. The next time you need inspiration, look for a Quilt Show to attend.
