Boundary Bay Quilt Show … May 2019

Our guild’s quilt show was this weekend.  I know I’m biased, but I think it was an excellent show!

I know that I missed taking pictures of some of the quilts!  And, even on the last day, I saw quilts I had not seen before!

The video below shows many of the quilts in the show.  When I downloaded the video to Youtube, it was blocked because I used copywrited songs by the Beatles.  One of the challenges was “Quilts inspired by a Beatles’ Song” … live and learn …You can’t use copywrited songs!  dang!  But, I found some other music …

The beginning of the video contains all sorts of a variety of quilts.  Then, they are sorted into various categories:

  • Baby Quilts for Donation
  • Baby Quilt Challenge: Welcome to the Zoo
  • Challenge: Quilts inspired by a Beatles Song
  • Comfort Quilts (donated to a local hospital for patients with cancer)
  • Quilts of Valour (for x-military)
  • Round Robin Quilts: Each person in the group made a centre block. This block was given to the next person who then added a border and then another person added a border, and on and on …
  • Featured Quilter: Doreen Douglas: Oh my what a wonderful variety of quilts … when you see the heron that is thread painted, it is reversible … amazing!

Grab a cup of tea (or coffee) and enjoy the show!




I have this weeks blocks done! I was easy to do … just join the blocks together in a big 9 patch and voila! done!  And … I need to patiently wait for 2 more weeks for the next step for this mystery quilt!  So far, I’m liking it!

I just finished the Daisy Chain blocks and there’s nothing new under my needle … yet.  But I have plans to start cutting …

  1. lovely quilts Gail. I put a short video thingy of my mother son dance at my son’s wedding and the sound was blocked for copyright. My sensible head knows it is all about licencing and author’s rights. And all well and good. But … my dancing my socks off for a few minutes to make everybody laugh, was never going to hurt anybody. Ah well

    • Hi Helen,
      Oh – not having music would make that not very funny … I hope you told people to “pretend” there was music.
      Youtube did give me a list of “free” music … but it just doesn’t fit the bill when you want something specific!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  2. Hi Gail! SOOOOOOO many great quilts. I kept saying to myself, oh that’s nice and oh, I want to make that one. The only one I can really remember is the bicycle with a basket of flowers. I really DO have that on my short list of things to make! ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Hi Roseanne,
      Glad you enjoyed our quilt show from SW British Columbia! There are SEW many I want to make, but I need to focus on what is in front of me … and for now, that’s plenty! And the bicycle is pretty great!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
