Quilt Canada Quilt Show

The Canadian Quilters Association had their big yearly quilt show, Quilt Canada, this week in Toronto.

I was there for the day on Thursday taking a class on quilt judging.  This was a class if you want to become a quilt show judge, but it was also for people, like me, that enter quilts into juried quilt shows.  I got a lot of information from the teachers on what judges look like in a quilt, so that advise was amazing!

I had a few minutes at lunch and then 1 hour after class to run through the quilt show to do a bit of shopping and see the quilts.  Here are a few of my favourites.

It was a rushed trip and I wonder if I spent more time in traffic driving through Toronto than I did at the quilt show?
