Nothing like a quilt show

I played hooky from work on Friday afternoon! Unheard of, but since I was starting holidays next week and I’d been training my replacement for almost a month, I felt like I could afford a little time off. My neighbour and friend, Judy, really wanted to go, and it was her birthday on Thursday. Her sister was visiting from Calgary, so the three of us drove to Lillooet, about an hour’s drive away. It was a nice little show, with some obviously very talented members of the Lillooet Quilter’s Guild.

I didn’t count them, but there were probably about 50 or 60 quilts there in St. Andrew’s Church. Of course, I took pictures of some of my favourites.
