This past weekend was the annual quilt show and sale by the Kennebecasis Valley Quilters' Guild. This guild is to be commended for doing a show of such proportions every year! Mounting a show is a huge undertaking and this group does it annually! They put the rest of us to shame! Some years are better than others and this year was exceptional. There were many many exquisite examples of the talent that is found in this group. There is always lots to see- quilts, some judged and some for display only, workshop pieces, challenges, small items for sale, a Quilters' Walk fundraiser, and of course vendors, not to mention seeing quilting friends from around the province. It's always a fun day to visit the KV show.... Without further ado, here are some of the beautiful quilts we saw.... in random order...
