Sweet Sixteen:
WQG Virtual Quilt Show 2021

Westshore Quilters' Guild of Victoria, B.C. is proud to present our virtual quilt show for 2021.  The Guild has hosted a quilt show every other year since it's inception in 2005, however, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we were unable to host an in-person event.  So we thought we would showcase the talents of the members of the WQG and their quilting endeavors during these unprecedented times. 

The Quilt Show is divided into FIVE categories.  Large Quilts.  Medium Quilts.  Small Quilts.  Wallhangings & Runners.  Charity Quilts.

Cathy's Log Cabin

Pattern: tradition block Pieced by Cathy Newman Quilted by Allison Metzger This started out as two packages of pre-cut log cabin strips that I bought during a trip to the Stitchery Expo in Puyallup a few years ago. It turned out a little on the small side and I was thrilled to find the perfect border fabrics in Victoria quilt shops to finish it.

Pattern: traditional blocks Pieced by Jes Findlay Quilted by Allison Metzger Measures: 68" x 78" I got tired of piecing stars because it was fiddly (yeah, my 1/4" wasn't!) so I decided to go with non-traditional layout. It turned out to be a favourite.

Sunflower Love

Pattern: original pattern by Donna Sims Pieced by Donna Sims Quilted by Allison Metzger Measures: 50" x 70" This is a lap quilt that I made for a friend of mine for her 70th birthday in June of 2021. We have been friends for over 45 years. She loves all things sunflower! I was even able to surprise her with it in person! I won the panel as a door prize at a guild meeting and chose to make a variety of different sized friendship stars deliberately siting the panel so it is asymmetrical.
