On Saturday morning Bill and I headed for Cape Breton , we had two destinations in mind , first off a stop at the quilt show at St. Davids Church in Port Hastings then on to watch our granddaughter Elise play baseball in Judique further up the coastline . My stay at the quilt show was brief and as luck would have it my camera batteries died part way through my picture taking . On the bright side the show was fantastic , what talent in the Strait area !! I met up with Lesley who was busy with the visitors who were there at the time , she was a busy little bee but it was great to talk with her for a while .
A view from the front of the church towards the entry , isn't that amazing .
This was a stunning whole cloth quilt , the quilting is amazing .
This trio was just behind the whole cloth quilt.
If you have the chance to visit the show this week you won't be disappointed , now there may be a few missing as they are for sale . There is another room which is selling smaller quilted items and even some fabric .
The baseball game was rather interesting , things are done differently with this age group and everyone gets a chance at bat before the next team goes up . They were an enthusiastic group and it was fun to watch their antics . Elise is a real keener and did very well .
Now here are a few quilts of a different sort , barn quilts . One day we just happened upon these barn quilts and I was thrilled to see them , I had no idea they existed anywhere in Nova Scotia . This is a project by the 4H in Upper Stewiacke area and quite the project it is . There are 15 quilts in total with the hopes of doubling that amount by next summer along with the making of a quilt using these blocks .
That is it from me for today , I do have a little sewing related things to share but will save those for another time. As always thanks for taking the time to stop by for a visit , I love to read your comments .
