Quilt aficionados got to wait in the sun for the ribbon cutting by mayor Chris Burger opening the triennial festival with over 300 impressive works of quilted art.

As of the opening hour, attendance looked good as people streamed into the Parksville Community and Conference Centre. The Seasons by the Sea Quilt Festival brought together the best works of the Parksville Quilt House Quilters Guild and their friends and included demonstrations, a boutique, door prizes and three handmade quilts up for raffle.

An antique quilt display at the Craig Heritage Park and Museum and quilt walks in Parksville and Qualicum Beach continue through the month.

The guild meets on the third Monday of each month at 1 and 7 p.m. at Bradley Centre in Coombs from September until June.
