quilt show

The quilt show was over a week ago and I finally have time to post some of my favorites from it. DD#2 and DD#1 accompanied me to the show. They've never come with me before and it was fun!
This one had cherry yo-yos :0)

This one was tiny and just gorgeous!!

These owls were fun - they had googly eyes sewn on :0)

I was pleased to find mine hanging in the bright sunshine. It was a beautiful day!

This one was hanging in a very prominent spot on the upper hotel balcony. Hand quilted and hand appliqued - I thought it was stunning!

I loved the fabrics in this one.

I thought the quilting was cool on this quilt - the full picture is below.

This next one was just lovely but it was hanging in a large tent and the lighting was poor. The chintz panels at the top and bottom were from Paris.

Another charming traditional quilt.
The show was wonderful - it never disappoints!!

The next day I had a big surprise!! I won the prize from a draw held at one of the guild tables.
The Big Hill Quilters put together a beautiful box full of goodies!!

This box is full of patterns, kits, notions, fabric, pincushions... WOW! I was amazed when I dug into it! I'll have to have a giveaway next week sometime to share some of it. I was completely blown away by their generosity.

Happy Quilting!!

Thanks for the show! I liked yours the best, and I'm not just saying that to be your "favorite commenter of the day!" LOL That range of blue...kind of "demin" my favorite, and your choice of colorful scraps partnered with it really sings to me.

In stitches,
Teresa :o)
