Quilt Show Impressions

I was busy all day with my booth but I went in early on Saturday morning to take a quick look at the show that I had helped set up. Quite a few quilts in the show had been quilted by me, and I tried to take pictures of the others, so I would have something to show that you haven’t seen here before. It was a great show, lots of amazing quilts. The only big quilt I had in the show was the finished sample of the Tuxedo Cats. Two blocks haven’t been published yet but here is a preview of what the finished quilt looks like.

Tuxedo Cats


My booth was right next to the entrance, and everybody had to pass me on their way to the hall with the big quilts. It started a little slow but around lunch time on Saturday things got very busy and stayed that way almost until the end of the show. Looking at the pictures of my booth, I realized that I have several patterns that I have been selling at shows but never uploaded to the website or even mentioned here on my blog. I will start working on that… we’ll see how that goes with the Christmas rush coming up. One gentleman was in awe of my Pansies pattern, he loved the colours and how realistic the flowers look, and after he had seen the show he came back to my booth because he wanted to vote for my Pansies as Best in Show 🙂 He was very disappointed when I told him he had to find another favourite quilt since my sample was not part of the actual show.

Encounters like this one make up for the negative parts. Somebody actually stole from me this time. Three patterns went missing and haven’t turned up. I also stopped someone trying to walk away with another three and made them pay for what they picked. It might have been an honest mistake but judging by their behaviour (which had made me watch them in the first place) I don’t think so. I usually just have one bin of patterns out for people to dig through, and that makes it easy to watch and pay attention to where the patterns go. This time I had three, apparently that was too much for the busy time. Next time I will be prepared and go back to just one bin.

But enough ranting, it was a great show, we had a lot of fun, and I enjoyed those two days very much. Here are a few impressions of the show, I hope you enjoy them as well.

Our Fabric Gems – Chilliwack Quilt Show 2019

I should have posted this yesterday but didn’t have time at all, sorry about that. I helped with the set up and hanging in the morning and then set up my booth. By the time I got home, I was ready for bed, and that’s where I went after having some food. We have a great show at the Alliance Church, if you are in the area please come and visit today. The weather isn’t going to be great, so being inside looking at beautiful quilts is a great way to spend your Saturday. Come and say hi, you can’t miss me, everybody has to pass my booth on their way to the main hall.

Quilt Show 2018

As you can probably tell by the silence, the Christmas rush is in full swing, and I have no time for blogging. I have come to the conclusion that I will never find the time to post pictures from the quilt show but here are some videos instead. Our guild member Norma H. took pictures of everything and spent a lot of time turning them into videos and uploading them to Youtube. So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy! And thank you, Norma, for all the work you put into this.

Ich stecke hier bis ĂŒber beide Ohren im vorweihnachtlichen Quiltwahn und habe keine Zeit zum Bloggen. Ich bin daher zu dem Schluss gekommen, dass ich wohl nie Bilder von der Quilt Show posten werde, jedenfalls nicht in absehbarer Zeit. Stattdessen gibt es heute Videos. Eines unserer Mitglieder, Norma H., hat alles photographiert und dann viel Zeit investiert, aus den Bildern Videos zu erstellen und diese auf Youtube zu posten. Viel Spaß beim Besuchen der virtuellen Show, und vielen Dank an Norma fĂŒr die MĂŒhe, die sie sich gemacht hat.

Piecemaking in the Valley 2018 Quilt Show

The big day is finally here! And I got (almost) everything done in time. The only thing missing are the labels for my quilts but I added some temporary identification (aka masking tape, don’t tell anyone… I *really* didn’t have time for real labels). If you are in the area, please come and see the show and say hi, you will find me today and tomorrow in my booth in the Merchants’ Mall.

Piecemaking in the Valley 2018

Es ist soweit, heute beginnt unsere Quiltshow, und ich bin sogar mit (fast) allem fertig geworden. Das einzige, was noch fehlt, sind die Labels an meinen Quilts, aber da habe ich improvisiert und eine Notlösung gefunden (Malerkrepp eignet sich hervorragend… nicht weitersagen, das ist eigentlich so gar nicht meine Art, aber ich hatte wirklich keine Zeit mehr fĂŒr ordentliche Labels, das mache ich dann nĂ€chste Woche). Wer in der Gegend ist, ist herzlich eingeladen, unsere Show anzusehen, und ich freue mich auch ĂŒber Besucher an meinem Stand in der Merchants’ Mall.

Moonlight

Last week Quilt Canada 2018 took place in Vancouver, and our guild had organized a bus trip on Saturday. I am going on a trip tomorrow and have no time to look through all my pictures but the award-winning quilts are all featured on the CQA website, click here to take a look. There were many fantastic quilts but I would like to show you one of them: “Moonlight” by Wanda L., one of my fellow guild members. Her beautiful swan quilt won a judge’s choice award at Quilt Canada, she is a wonderful artist.

I am taking the next two weeks off, and I don’t think I will have time to post during my trip. See you all when I get back!

Moonlight by Wanda L

“Moonlight” by Wanda L., Chilliwack, BC


In der letzten Woche fand die große nationale Show “Quilt Canada 2018” in Vancouver statt, und ĂŒber unsere Gilde haben wir am Sonnabend eine Busfahrt dorthin organisiert. Da ich morgen nach Deutschland fliege, habe ich leider keine Zeit, mich durch alle meine Bilder zu wĂŒhlen, aber die Quilts, die Preise gewonnen haben, sind alle auf der CQA-Website zu finden, wer schauen mag, bitte hier klicken. Es waren viele tolle Quilts zu sehen, aber einen davon möchte ich hier besonders hervorheben: “Moonlight” von Wanda L. Wanda ist Mitglied in unserer Gilde, und ihr wunderschöner Schwanenquilt hat einen Judge’s Choice Award gewonnen, sie ist eine tolle KĂŒnstlerin, und wir sind alle richtig stolz.

Die nĂ€chsten beiden Wochen nehme ich mir frei, ich glaube nicht, dass ich Zeit haben werde, hier zu posten. Wir sehen uns wieder, wenn ich zurĂŒck bin.

Quilt Show in Langley

The Langley Quilters’ Guild put on an awesome show on Friday and Saturday, and they took excellent care of their vendors. It was a lot of fun, and I went in early on Saturday morning for a chance to actually see some of the amazing quilts on display. Here are some pictures I took in case you didn’t have a chance to see the show.

Booth Langley Show

Es war eine tolle Show, die die Langley Quilters’ Guild am Freitag und Sonnabend prĂ€sentiert hat, und sie haben sich auch super um all die VerkĂ€ufer in der Merchants Mall gekĂŒmmert. Wir hatten viel Spaß, und ich bin am Sonnabend extra frĂŒher hingefahren, um mir wenigstens im Schnelldurchgang die Quilts anzusehen, die da gezeigt wurden. Hier sind ein paar Bilder fĂŒr alle, die die Show nicht besuchen konnten.

Chilliwack Quilters Guild Quilt Show 2017

My friend who wanted to help me with my booth at the quilt show this year unfortunately became sick two days before the show, so I didn’t really have much time to look at the quilts. But I did a quick tour and took pictures before the doors opened, and there were lots of really great entries. I always feel very inspired after visiting a quilt show and I want to make half of the projects that I saw and don’t even know where to start. I put the pictures together in several collages, there were just too many. And there is also a lovely video on YouTube, thank you very much to Linda B. for making it available.

 


Meine Freundin, die mir eigentlich an meinem Stand bei der Quilt Show helfen wollte, ist leider zwei Tage vorher krank geworden, so dass ich allein war und keine Zeit hatte, mir die Quilts in der Show in Ruhe anzusehen. Ich bin aber kurz durchgelaufen, bevor die TĂŒren geöffnet wurden und habe Bilder gemacht. Es waren tolle Quilts dabei, und wie immer bin ich nach so einer Show sehr inspiriert, möchte mindestens die HĂ€lfte der Projekte auch nĂ€hen und weiß gar nicht, wo ich anfangen soll. Die Bilder habe ich wieder in Collagen zusammengefasst, es waren einfach zuviele. Und ein Video existiert auch, ich habe es hier eingefĂŒgt mit Dank an Linda B. fĂŒr die Arbeit, die sie sich damit gemacht hat.

Quilt Show Weekend

With our quilt show today and tomorrow I will be busy and won’t have time to find and post a free pattern. If you are in the area, come in and take a look, we would love to see you there. I will be back on Monday with my post for the Enter If You Dare Blog Hop. It started on Wednesday, take a look at Marian’s blog Seams To Be Sew, she posts daily links to the featured bloggers who made lots of cute Halloween projects.

Chilliwack Quilt Show 2017



Heute und morgen findet unsere Quilt Show in Chilliwack statt, so dass ich keine Zeit habe, ein freies Muster zu suchen und zu posten. Es wird vermutlich niemand gerade zufĂ€llig in der NĂ€he sein, aber falls doch, wir freuen uns ĂŒber jeden Besucher. Ich melde mich am Montag wieder mit meinem Beitrag zum “Enter If You Dare” Blog Hop. Dieser hat bereits vor zwei Tagen begonnen, und Marian postet auf ihrem Blog Seams To Be Sew tĂ€glich die Links zu den Blogs, die ihre Projekte vorstellen, da gibt es viele schöne Sachen zu sehen.

Patchwork Nation – Quilt Show in Langley

Yes, I know, I am late… I am very late. The show in Langley was a month ago. But I didn’t have time to look through all the pictures before, so better late than never. There were lots of wonderful quilts, and I came home with many ideas. The challenge theme was to create a small wall hanging picturing what Canada means to the quilter. One of the entries showed a Mountie playing hockey, and while we were looking at it,  the real officer who had been the model for the quilt, showed up and let us take his picture with the quilt. Great fun!


Ja, ich weiß, ich bin spĂ€t dran… sehr spĂ€t sogar, denn die Quilt Show in Langley ist schon wieder einen Monat her. Aber ich hatte einfach keine Zeit, mich durch die ganzen Photos zu wĂŒhlen, daher zeige ich sie heute erst. Besser spĂ€t als nie. Es gab jede Menge tolle Quilts zu sehen, und ich habe viele Anregungen mitgenommen. Es gab auch eine Challenge, und passend zu Kanadas 150. Geburtstag in diesem Jahr sollte auf einem kleinen Wandbehang dargestellt werden, welche Bedeutung Kanada fĂŒr die Quilterin hat. Auf einem Wandbehang war ein hockeyspielender Mountie dargestellt (Mountie ist eine umgangssprachliche Bezeichnung fĂŒr einen kanadischen Polizisten; die Polizei heißt hier RCMP, das steht fĂŒr Royal Canadian Mounted Police), und als wir uns diesen gerade ansahen, tauchte plötzlich der Polizist auf, der dafĂŒr Modell gestanden hatte, und ließ sich von uns mit dem Wandbehang photographieren.

PieceMaking in the Valley Quilt Show

Every year in October, one of the two quilting guilds in Chilliwack hosts a quilt show. This year it was the Chilliwack Piecemakers Quilting Guild. I only joined in September and didn’t have a quilt in the show but I helped with some last minute organizational stuff like checking in the show quilts yesterday. We were busy outside Chilliwack all weekend but I found some time this morning to go and actually look at the quilts. There were lots of wonderful quilts in the show this year, and I didn’t even try to decide which one was my favourite.


Im Oktober organisiert immer eine der beiden Quiltgilden in Chillwack eine Quiltshow. In diesem Jahr war es die Chilliwack Piecemakers Quilting Guild, das ist die Abendgilde, der ich erst im September beigetreten bin. Daher hatte ich diesmal keinen Quilt in der Show, aber ich habe zumindest bei der Organisation geholfen, z.B. war ich gestern morgen damit beschĂ€ftigt, die vielen Quilts fĂŒr die Show in Empfang zu nehmen und zu organisieren. Da wir aber mal wieder das ganze Wochenende unterwegs waren, hatte ich nicht viel Zeit, mich dort zu engagieren, aber heute morgen hatte ich dann doch Gelegenheit, mir die Show tatsĂ€chlich anzusehen.  In diesem Jahr waren so viele Quilts in der Show, die mir gut gefielen, dass ich nicht mal versucht habe zu entscheiden, welcher mir am allerbesten gefĂ€llt.
