Exposition Couvertes Piquées

There are some fabulous quilt shows coming up in Nova Scotia this summer. One I have long been wanting to attend is the Exposition Couvertes Piquées in Saulnierville, N.S. The show is held from July 30th to August 3, 2012 in the historic Sacré-Coeur church. Saulnierville is an Acadian community located in the municipality of Clare on the shores of St. Mary's Bay, half way between Digby and Yarmouth, along what is known as the French Shore.
The quilts are displayed in a stunning fashion on the pews in the beautiful sanctuary.
You can find more information on the show here. Be sure to check out the gallery of quilts from previous shows. Perhaps I will see you there!


  1. Yes I have always wanted to get to that one too! The venue is spectacular...

  2. Oh that does sound special. Wish I were closer.

  3. Fingers crossed! Hoping to get there this year.

  4. I love quilts displayed over church pews. The church up the street from me has a show once a year that coincides with their Christmas bazaar.

  5. So glad to have you come visit us!!!! I just wish I could play the bugle to announce your visit! Thanks for the wonderful post.
