16th Annual Festival of Quilts, 2011
Heritage Park Historical Village, late 19th and  20th Century Alberta.
The Prince House built in 1894, originally built at 238, 4th Ave. SW, Calgary.  Peter Prince reportedly designed his home from plans of a Connecticut house published in the Nov. 1893 issue of Scientific American, Architects and Builders Edition.
Queen Anne Style, three storeys with a tower, 3,300 square feet, parlor, dinning room, kitchen, 8 bedrooms, Servant's quarters, and the modern convenience of hot water heating.
In the parlor of the Prince house, the park had a lady in period wear playing the piano along side the quilts.
At the Hospital, am I ever glad things have moved forward in the medical world! Ouch! 
I thought that this monster quilt looked perfect on this patient hospital bed.
The Burnside Ranch House and Har Rack, built in 1887 by Ewsin Donald Mckay. The house was named Burnside because of the creek or burn which ran though it. This ranch was located in Grandvalley, west of Cochrane, AB.
This homespun piggy quilt was my favorite quilt of all! Just adorable!
The baby animals at the Ranch House were sew cute! 
This Mum was very busy talking to her babies! Very sweet.
Journey of A Quilter, the embroidery on this quilt was incredible! I have all the BOMs to this quilt so I am now inspired to get started.
Quilts displayed down by the Dairy Barn.
Kittens Tale, love the yo,yo's and pinwheels on this one.
I thought my Girls would love this dog walking quilt since they run a little dog walking business, Pampered Puppies.
What a beautiful day!
