Last night I was fortunate to attend the International Plowing Match Reception for the quilt show and ribbon cutting ceremony for events of the Plowing Match in Harriston, (Town of Minto) Ontario.
This show is on NOW we had a sneak peak at the quilts in the show and of course I also saw the block challenge quilts (raffle quilts). They all are beautiful! So much talent in one room! See Details of the show below and try to attend it either today or Saturday! There are also great vendors for your quilt shopping pleasure.

The drive through Harriston into Minto is spectacular trust me. Rolling hills and lovely pastoral countryside!
Also. I will see you at the Plowing Match check the details about this here to take place September 20-24 in Harriston (Town of Minto).
TGIF Have a great Friday! ❤️
Hi everyone, this past weekend I attended the Mennonite Relief Sale and Quilt Auction in New Hamburg with my friend Carol and it was awesome. Read all about it here
This has happened every year in this area for 50 years!
The quilts were gorgeous! So much talent! The food smelled delicious and it was lots of fun. I purchased the below, lovely paisley fabric from the Mennonite Relief Sale Tent.
I also purchased a used manly backpack from the Mennonite Thrift booth for my husband so that he would stop using his daughters old one! Lol
Later on... we attended a new quilt shop "Quilting By Design" in New Hamburg with Caroline (a quilting hostage we picked up) and Carol :

This shop houses many wonderful modern fabrics
We also visited Hyggeligt Fabric in St Mary's - Home to many Kaffe Fassett fabrics! It was wonderful.

My purchases from the above stores? Of course you know it! Some lovelies I just had to have. I see a modern Dresden and a Tipsy Tumbler in my future.
If you are in the area, these are all things I recommend. The Mennonite Relief sale in May and quilt shop hopping (any time) at the shops we visited above, a great Saturday activity!
My eyes are now happy and I am itching to sew, so Have a Happy Monday!😊
