These are some of my favorites from the show. Ruth's Butterflies are huge. Its a very dramatic quilt to celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary.

I like the dimension and detail in the Haida quilt and polar bears. The Haida quilts dimension is 3D but the polar bears are done through value.

At first glance I thought the light house was closely quilted but a close inspection reveals its very fine piecing! Lots of work but adds a lot to the lighthouse

I've taken lots of photos of mushrooms while hiking. These are wonderful. They werent just appliqued on the top but are 3D and have lots of texture

Its amazing the detail and shading that can be achieved with fabric. Birdie McLean's quilt looks like several places on the Bruce Trail and makes me want to walk down that trail and see what's in the River Valley.

I'm still trying to decide if there's sashing in Nature's Garden or if its carefully quilted to suggest sashing. I'm inclined to thinking its a suggestion and I like that idea.

This was entered as a traditional quilt. I can see the blocks and traditional elements but I'm still not sure I've cracked the code to the quilt. The blocks rotate across the quilt top.
