An Alberta Quilt Show and a Friday Finish!

Central Alberta Quilt Show

Are you going??? This Quilt Show is known to be one of the best!!! It’s in Red Deer. On Friday, May 12 & Saturday, May 13.

Exhibition Hall, Westerner Park

4847 – 19 St. Red Deer Alberta T4R 2N7

I’m super excited about this show. My friend, Carmen, who owns Prairie Spirit Alpacas, will be there with her Alpaca/wool pressing mats …. If you see her … say “hi” and tell her that you “know” me! 😀.

PLUS: she will be selling a lot of my patterns!

PLUS: she will have this quilt there … It’s made with the Baby Stars pattern in Island Batik fabrics and the batting is Alpaca fleece. It will be a super super warm quilt!!! It was quilted on my domestic Janome M7. The Alpaca fleece certainly gives the quilting great texture! The fleece was doubled for this quilt, but I think it would have been just as good, if not better, with a single layer!

And this is my Friday Finish!

This is the original Baby Stars, it’s the picture you’ll see on my pattern … photo credit: Jerry Khiev, Island Batik.

Let me know if you buy a pattern, a mat, or some wool … buy some alpaca batting if you want to try it!


I just came back from a 4 day retreat! LOTS of fun!!! I’ll tell you all about it on Sunday!

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  2. Alpaca Fleece, will have to look into that! Had nor heard of that for quilt batting before. I can imagine how warm and soft that would be.

  3. Hi Gail, wow, quilted with two layers of alpaca wool batting! It really does have lots of loft. It sounds like a great show but Red Deer is really far away. Glad you had a good retreat – I love hearing about them! Thanks for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks. Take care.

    • Hi Andrée!
      I’m only a 2 day drive from Red Deer, and I didn’t make it! You would have a MUCH longer drive!!! You’ll hear more about the retreat in a future blog post! Thanks for hosting Free Motion Mavericks.
