what a weekend!

I had a very busy weekend! Even my Mom has told me I need to post about the quilt show on Saturday. The weather was so disappointing. Usually many of the quilts are displayed outside but this year it was snowing/raining all weekend so the quilts were all inside.
I started with looking at the antique quilts so I'll share those first.
This one was closely quilted with fans.
I adore this one. It's from the historic park's collection.
This one was hard to photograph but very wonderful.
I really liked the quilting on this one - a marvelous over all pattern! Here's a closer shot.
I will try to post more tomorrow. From the show and also from the dinner and trunk show I went to in the evening featuring Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt co. Her quilts were wonderful to see in person and she is an entertaining speaker.
Happy quilting!!

Red & green is a good combination in an antique quilt. It would be hard to pick a favorite from among these. They are beautiful.

Those are all gorgeous! I love the overall quilting in that last one and the colors and designs of the first three all tie for the 'biggest wow' in this post. Thanks so much for sharing!
