The show is held in the Saulnier Parish Church, a spectacular wooden structure that is pictured below. This annual event is sponsored by the Guilde Acadien de Clare, a local quilt guild who work very hard at making this the successful event that it is.
The setting for the display of quilts is breathtaking.
A quilt or quilts is laid out on each and every pew...
and some are also draped from the choir loft.
Every color and style imaginable is on display.
The talent that is showcased on each and every quilt makes it evident that there are some very prolific quilters in the area and that the craft is very alive in Nova Scotia.

Today is the last day for this year's show and sale but if you're looking for something to do next year around the same time, consider adding this event to your list of "must things to see and do". Nova Scotians are among the friendliest people in the world, the scenery is spectacular and the seafood is to die for. Oh...and the local quilt shops are an added bonus for sure! Just ask me how I know that!
So are you coming? I promise you won't be disappointed!
