Festival of Quilts

I attended the Heritage Park Festival of Quilts today in Calgary and it was an absolutely beautiful show. The most perfect setting for a quilt show with such a historic backdrop for the many quilts on display. I truly enjoyed the company of a dear quilting friend as we wandered through all the old buildings enjoying their history, each one unique and properly placed along the streets. Hundreds of quilts were placed inside and outside the homes and businesses, on front porches, fences, in the yards and along the tree lines. We took the entire day to appreciate each and every quilt for the time and skill it took to create such beautiful works of art, and I must say 'thank you quilters' for putting your quilts on display, it is because of you that the quilt show is such a huge success!! See you next year!
