Quilt Canada 2016

I finally got to Quilt Canada on Wednesday. This year it was in Toronto at the International Centre, my favorite venue for any show. It was a lovely show to say the least. There were lots and lots of fabric shops displaying beautiful fabrics. Many quilt shops I didn't even know existed, like Country Concessions in Cookstown, ON. Cookstown is on my way to Collingwood, where we visit friends several times a year. So you know what I'll be doing on the way there or on the way back. I picked up these beautiful pieces from their booth.

I also purchased this fabric glue pen and a couple of refills to hold me over for a while. It's great to hold zippers and trims in place - instead of using pins. For embroidery you can use it for in-the-hoop projects andapplique, especially if you don't like to use temporary adhesive spray. It dries clear and is water soluble. So good all around.

Of course all the sewing machine companies were there, including my friend Monique from Brampton Sew N Serge in Brampton. She was at the Husqvarna booth. It was a small booth, but pretty cute. Sorry I didn't get a picture - too many people in the way.

If you are in the market for a long arm quilter, then this show was for you. I lost count of the number of booths selling long arm quilting systems. They were all quite spectacular.

Lots and lots of quilts on display, here are a few of my favorites. I was in awe of so many that I forgot to take pictures.
