These quilted pieces were very artistic, showcased interesting use of fabric and a very imaginative quilter. This first show in Canada was sponsored by The Cotton Harvest Quilt Shop in Seaforth. Fat quarters of purple were sold today..hopefully a Canadian will be the winner of the 2018 competition.
