Quilt show

Our local guild just held it's annual quilt show this past weekend and as always... it was fabulous.
We have such a creative talented group of quilters in our area and they never disappoint.
I was too busy looking and chatting to take many pix but I did snap a few to share.

I really liked this star quilt. I like the setting and the little detailed block in the center. It is like a quilt in a quilt.








This is a quilt my friend Jessie made using a Piece O' Cake pattern. Jessie hand quilted it and it is gorgeous and well deserving of the blue ribbon!


Jessie also made this incredible string-pieced mini quilt. You can see how tiny the strips are by using the clothespins as size comparison.  She made a large version last year and then made this mini for the auction and my friend Cathi was the winning bidder. Lucky Cathi!


This was another adorable mini quilt....with a blue ribbon




Here's Deb, one of our local vendors... Quilt Lover's Hangout


I really liked this New York Beauty...I've been wanting to make one for a long time....someday......sigh


How cute is this little embroidered basket quilt.....

This is a closeup from a quilt made the our show chair Deb Crine....she makes amazing quilts.

This is a little quilt my friend Mary made after taking a class from Maya Schonenberger. I should have taken a close up to show the detail better. It is really nice.


As usual the show went by quickly. It's a year of preparation and hard work by so many, and then poof- it's over and the preparation for next year begins.....
