Quilt Show Part 1

Having missed Quilter's Anonymous show this year, I was so happy to hop in the car on Friday, pick up my friend Carol, stop at Starbuck's, and drive to the Tri City Quilters Guild annual quilt show! I love seeing all the quilts, gathering ideas, seeing new and old techniques, and must admit that (don't we all!) I really enjoy the vendors mall!

I took a lot of pictures, so I'll split the show into two or three posts. Enjoy!

This first quilt is all wool....so scrumptious!

There was a display to benefit Breast Cancer Awareness....here are just a couple....click on the pictures to enlarge - they are a hoot!

Origami!


Someone is really into machine embroidery - isn't this an adorable baby quilt?
I loved these baskets - and the quilting - oh, my!!
This one below is 6 separate pieces.
Love the stars!

Check out the circles below....if you click on the picture, you can see it's just thread creating the circles - from a distance you would think they are sewn!
Minick and Simpson's pattern "Brrrrr Park" Below - wonderful quilting again!
Of course I love the pumpkins!
McKenna Ryan's patterns were featured - this one actually has little pieces hanging on the line!
Look at the quilting below - wow!
This gal was kind enough to pose with her great t-shirt! It says it all, doesn't it!!
The quilt below is made up of faces from the guild - such artistry went into it!!
Great scrap quilt!
More baskets....I seem to be drawn to them...does that mean I need to make a basket quilt?
I'll give you a day or two to savor these and be back with more!

Being a "pumpkin person" I'll go with the pumpkin quilt first. LOL

Isn't it just amazing at the talent that is out there? LOL - to think what one can do with even a BRA.

No --- not to worry ---LOL my bra stays in the drawer. LOL

Great show! I liked the star one a lot, oh and all the baskets. I do think you need to make a basket quilt. I just did the Schnibbles Picnic which I now need to quilt. It was a little challenging, but fun. Now I am looking at Fig Tree's Laundry Basket quilt. The quilting in your pictures is amazing. I need a lot more practice to even come close!

Wow that's a awesome show and I love the baskets. I started that pattern in 30's fabrics, not sure how many blocks I've done.

I love a quilt show! There is a lot of inspiration in this post Candace! I really enjoy seeing the detail in the quilting...it can really change or enhance the look of a quilt.

Any purchases?! :)

Candace, thank you for sharing, these ladies have a lot of talent. Love looking at pictures from quilt shows.
I think a basket quilt should be next on the list.

Mel said...

Melanie said...

Oh Candace thanks for sharing! My fav has to be the stars. I love the applique details to the 9 patches in the quilt below too. So much inspiration.

Trisha said...

Beautiful quilts! I am always amazed and inspired by what quilters can come up with.

I have to admit I laughed out loud at one line in your post. "click on the picture to enlarge" about the bras.
