This is the show that I will always credit for bringing me back to quilting. A few years ago my sister, Brenda, came for a visit and her trip coincided with the quilt show, so I dragged her butt to the show and fell in love with the craft all over again.
This year's show was just as yummy as the pasts. It's theme was Stars!
And there were stars everywhere.
I actually have this pattern (It's from Bonnie Blue Quilts - Glory Bound) but Dorothy Welch added a few borders to make it larger. I think I'll need to borrow that idea when I make mine.
Remember this quilt? It won a pretty ribbon! (Full Bloom by Carrie Nelson)
Congrats to Carol Dickschat who pieced this beauty!
I love this quilt. I also have the pattern!! Yeah Me!
Gorgeous is an understatement. I think I'll make it when I become a real quilter. LOL!
Congrats to Nina Johnston for the ribbon this beauty earned.
Lots of stars and gorgeous applique peppered the aisles of this show. I setup the slide show below. I hope it works. The quilters that created each piece is credited after the quilt itself.(I think you can change the speed of the slideshow or move ahead manually if you find things going a bit too slow).
As to the vendors... that is worth a whole post! I'll just say that there was some damage to the bank account, but not as much as there could have been if I had bought that darn Big Board Iron surface that I wanted!!
Hope you are having a quilty weekend!!
