Saskatoon Quilt Show 2019

Last weekend I went on a bit of a road trip!  I picked up Lori in Selkirk then made our way to Dauphin that evening and had a great visit with friends there.  Then off to Saskatoon the next day where we meet up with friends from Flin Flon and we all enjoyed the Saskatoon Quilters Guild Quilt Show. 

Mami's Country Quilts was there and they have a lovely sample of our Alternate Routes quilt on display.

Fabriculous from Swan River/Gimli was there as well and had a great sample of our Quarter Sections quilt on display.  Wendy, the shop owner, has my sample of her pattern "Falling in Love' and I'm really glad she is still enjoying it for her displays. She also had a beautiful sample of a quilt from the book Quilts from Iceland that I just love!  

I didn't take too many photos of the quilts in the show but this next two caught my eye!  The first one is a Steampunk quilt  ( sorry I didn't take a closer picture of the cards on these quilt so if you know who's these quilts were made by please let me know in the comments.)

Love the colours and quilting on this Kaleidoscope quilt.

And I'm sure your not surprised this next one caught my eye!

So I think I did a good job supporting the vendors.  I feel in love with this collection called Winter Shimmer by Jennifer Sampou when I saw it in Keystone Modern Creative booth! So it came home with me!

Then I picked up some waxed canvas, rivets and leather straps from Fabriculous, and her pattern to make the tote too!  I picked up a collection of bold prints for a variety of shops but haven't decided which ones to use with the canvas.

 A month ago I stopped in at a wonderful quilt shop in Beausejour, MB called Needle Crafts + Studio and picked up a bit of fabric and the North Stars pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. I got about half the fabrics I needed at that time and then collected a few more at the show. Here is what I added to my collection for this quilt from the show.

I was smart and glued swatches of the fabrics I had already bought into the pattern book before leaving for the show and then when I got home glued in what I bought at the show. Still need 6 more fabrics!  I changed the colouring of the owl block to purple from the rose pink but the rest I keep close to the pattern.

When I was at Needle Craft + Studio I also couldn't resist this lovely bundle and some yardage of the Figo's Desert Wilderness line.

And these two pieces came home with me too because they are so pretty.  Did you notice that I didn't buy one piece of batik!  Now I should have plenty to sew for my Tuesday quilting group and a local retreat I'll be attending next weekend.  I was out of projects to work on!


  1. What a wonderful road trip! I wish I could have been with you. Some lovely purchases. I can't wait to see what becomes of them all.

  2. I wish I could have met you there...we should be done combining by Christmas!!! I'm looking forward to seeing your North Star quilt done! And how great is it to see your work and skill on display there!!

  3. I've been collecting fabrics to make the North Stars quilt too! My goal is to get it cut out for a quilt retreat in February.

  4. When I attended shows I got into the habit of zooming in on the label for my first shot and then the quilt itself as best I could for the second. Sure saved me from making quick notes trying to remember name of pattern, etc.
