    Here's what greeted us as we arrived to the Quilt Show last weekend ..... just what every quilter needs to dash around in.

    Yes, it's fully quilted, and slides over the car. Windows had a screen fabric, so it can be "driven"! Though you would need someone to slide it over after the driver was in place.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't get a photo of the top. It was quite an intricate applique pattern on the full roof.

    The Guild President made it herself .... and rushed to have it done for the show. Nicely done!!! :)

    ahem .... that'd be provincial! I'll proudly remind you this is a Canadian gem!

    I really enjoyed meeting the President ... seemed like quite a fun loving lady!! I'd hope that with all that work that she does have plans to show it off in Parades, and I bet she'll be taking it to other quilt shows too!

    Who knows? Invite her to yours and maybe she'll come!
