Quilts on Display

The IPM 2022 Quilt Committee is delighted to announce that 170 quilts were entered in the Quilt Competition. The entries include a wide range of artistry & creativity. All were created after August 2020 and many of the quilts represent how time was passed during the pandemic - they have become history objects. Every quilt tells a story. The maker is asked to provide a name to the quilt - the name of the pattern and pattern maker (and if a design of their own - to give it a name). There is prize money for most of the categories with $100 for 1st, $75 for 2nd and $50 for 3rd. Bragging rights are priceless! The quilts will be professionally judged before the Quilt Show. Categories: Art Quilt, Crib/Toddler Quilt, Miniature Quilt, Wall Hanging, Pandemic Projects, Appliqued Quilts, Pieced Quilts, Modern Quilts, Quarantine Quilts, Youth Quilts, Long Armed Professional and Barn Quilts. (We had a wonderful response to our call for Barn Quilts and there will be approximately 30 barn quilts on display. Be sure to check them out and to vote for your favourite!) We are also fortunate to have a few quilts entered that were in Vancouver in June 2022 for Quilt Canada.

Bed Turning

What is a bed turning? A bed turning is an opportunity to tell a story about a number of selected quilts. Every quilt has a story and in a bed turning - the stage is set with a bed and the bed is layered with a number of quilts. A narrator tells a brief story about each quilt and two assistants - each wearing white gloves and assisting by holding up the top most quilt while its story is told. Then that quilt is folded and set aside and the next quilt is displayed by the two assistants and the narrator tells the story of the next quilt, and so on, and so on. Bed turnings originate back to our settler days where after a long winter, an invitation would be extended to the women in an area by a quilter, and they would gather around the bed of the quilter hostess, and she would show the quilts she had made. Tea and desserts would also be shared during the visit. At quilt shows today scheduled times for bed turnings have become popular events.

The bed turnings are scheduled for Friday, August 19 and Saturday, August 20 - 11:45 am and 1:15 pm | Friday, August 19 - 4:45 pm.
You can watch the Bed Turning from the quilt display area (or in the Tea Room during British Tea - see below).
