I recently spent a wonderful day with some of my quilting buddies at a quilt show in Red Deer, Alberta, which is about an hour and a half north of Calgary. Spring is always iffy in Alberta and I've driven to the show in thunder and lightning, snow and rain, but this time the weather was perfect! It was sunny and fairly mild - I was even able to leave my jacket in the van, rather than hauling it around the venue as I usually have to do.

After I finished my shopping (who am I kidding? I continued to shop until we left), I was able to view the quilts at the show. Since you couldn't be there with me, I'll give you a sample of the artistic creativity that was on display.
