Whitby Quilt Show-2016

The Queen Bee Quilters are holding a quilt show this weekend. The theme was a Stitch in Time. I just had to go.

The show began with

A display of a Stitch through time!  Then it was onto the quilts. Here are my favourites.

This was a late entry so I can’t remember who stitched it but I recall it was made for a granddaughter. Now what girl would not love this?

Indeed!

Agreed.

Now of course there were traders and stalls and of course I made some purchases. Fabric and buttons. I will share those another day. The traders all picked  quilts for an award from each of them and the visitors also got to choose their favourite, and the one with the most votes will get the visitors award. So which one did I pick?

Do you wish you could go, well if you can get to Whitby North Yorkshire, it is open on Sunday too.

Meantime let me leave you with these Christms trees. Here you got to choose your favourite and put coins in the bag next to it to signify a winner. All money to charity. And the winner would be the one with the most coins, not the one with the highest value. Time to empty your pockets of pennies…..

And although I love those cats, my money went in the bag next to it, all those decoartions were patchwork and the panel was quilted.

And the quilt I choose was the chilli inspired one. Loved the colours, that it was practical and was for her son. The snail very nearly had it though.

One great day out!

  1. Thanks for the field trip! Very enjoyable. 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing your visit – particularly love the ‘Creative clutter’ quote – I’m going to adopt that one!!!!

  3. looks like a wonderful day out! I would have had a hard time resisting those two black cats….

  4. What beautiful quilts. thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. Some amazing sewing there. Very impressed!

  6. Love the tour. Thank you!!

  7. Wonderful quilts to see – so imaginative, and so much variety. No 200 has to be my favourite with all those hearts and clothes!

  8. This is interesting, to see how different these are, as a group, from the American quilts I saw at a show a couple weeks ago! These are much softer in color (except the chili one!) and very traditional–they’re lovely!

  9. Enjoyed this so much, particularly some of those witticisms. Thank you so much for taking us along!

  10. I love quilt shows! My mother is a quilter and I so appreciate the time and effort that goes in piecing a piece together. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Loved seeing your quilt show. I am always impressed that as there are so many quilter, no two quilts are alike. I have a license plate frame that says a creative mind is never tidy. Pretty much sums it up. I loved the saying on the quilt too. Thanks for taking us along.

  12. Can’t help but love a good quilt show!

  13. Beautiful quilts! I have never been to a quilt show. I would love to go and see all the beautiful handiwork.
