Quilts on the Catwalk

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
Coco Chanel, French fashion designer (1883-1971)

The sisters (plus one) made their annual trek to the big city for the CreativFestival. Judging by the appearance of quilts on the catwalk and the increased number of vendors selling beautiful fabrics, patterns and funky little must-have gadgets, quilts and quilting are haute couture. It was a great day of demonstrations and inspiration and, yes, a little shopping.

Exiting the convention centre, the CN Tower was behind us and before us. It might not be Paris and its Eiffel, but the Toronto skyline is pretty impressive all the same.
