Friday I attended a quilt show in the "Big City" as Mr. Squash and I like to say. It's the closest large city from where we live and about 50 miles from home. I went with my friend Tammy whom I met blogging. Tammy also lives in the big city. We had a great time!
Here is Tammy with her entry in the show. It's an adorable house quilt which combines patchwork, needle turn applique, hand embroidery and lots of love! The theme of the show was "A Quilter's Journey" and Tammy's quilt very much fit the bill. Each house has some significance and even her pets are featured! Great job, Tammy!
I took a lot of photos but whittled them down to just a few for your viewing enjoyment! Isn't this one a stunner?
I thought this one had an interesting use of color that really works!
This one is by Eddie Walker, a local artist, who prior to quilting and designing her own patterns was well known as a figurine artist! This quilt is called Wedding Ring...Ring and is based on her pickle dish design.
I thought this was an interesting Dresden variation.
Quilters who do landscape quilts always fascinate me. Look how this one is so close to the actual photo!
This quilt was made in the 1890's. I was blown over on how bright the colors have remained!
Click on the photo to enlarge this crazy quilt made in 1912, which contains pieces from one of Mrs. Lincoln's dresses.
Of course I couldn't leave you today without a couple of cute kitty photos! Sasha likes to sit next to me at the computer every afternoon. She was so happy and relaxed here that her little tongue peeked out!
Gracie May thought she was hiding from Mr. Squash under the quilt on the back of his chair. We see you, Gracie :>)
