The little village of Ailsa Craig, Ontario
is a fair drive from our home in Oakville
There is a bit of history to these shows, but of course, me being me, I'm a bit slow to get on the wagon with these. I started with the Quilts of Ireland, last year the Quilts of the Netherlands and this year Denmark. The quilts go through a "selection process" and then are brought over to be put on display in the Community Centre in Ailsa Craig. This is the only way I will ever get to see quilts from around the world and although it takes a couple of hours to get there it is worth the trip.
It was a beautiful show. The quilts were fabulous and the handwork....................oh my gosh, it was incredible. Karl got to talk to a couple of ladies from his country of birth. Of course the first thing asked is where did you come from? One lady came from just across the fjord where Karl grew up. Small world.
Now before you begin to look at the Smilebox, let me admit, I did something to my camera and had to borrow Karl's. I don't like doing that as I'm not familiar with the settings on his, so a couple of photos may be kind of blurry. I didn't put up the worst of them, so I'm sorry to say some of the quilts are missing. Next time I'll watch those little gizmos on the top of the camera that now I know I should not touch.
Here is your Smilebox. Enjoy.
