Quilt Show Highlights

I have a few photos to share from our 
local quilt show this weekend!
It was SO much fun!

Here are a few birds-eye photos from when the show 
opened.



I don't think I ever stopped talking!


The quilt above is now on my "list".
I always love seeing the bright fabrics and
the batiks. 
There were several different events in our
area over the weekend, including a 
shop hop... so the show was very busy.

 I especially love the quilting on this one...
I met people from all over the state...
and a few sweet people who read Pink Pincushion!
How nice is that!?!

 My camera (not me) didn't do a good job on this photo...
but it was stunning!

 There were 80 quilts in the show...
this One Block Wonder was so bold and striking! 

And the two below were made by a friend of mine, 
Dianne. 

 Do you recognize this quilt from any other blogs?

How about this one?
My old friend Eventide! 
Dianne's turned out so pretty!

Nice Dresden.

I think these two were paper pieced...
they were really pretty.


I am still tired from the weekend...but
the raffle baskets were big hits! 
There were 17  in all...
with the ones I made up and the ones the
groups from the guild made up.
Now, to catch up with my house, yard...
and the sewing room, which is a major disaster!
I'm thinking it's a perfect time for re-organization in there! 
I will be back with more photos and to show you the
new friend I adopted yesterday too.

Great photos! If there were 80 quilts in the show, I'm wondering how many guild members you have. I bet you are glad it is all over, now you can be "free" all summer.

omg. My jaw dropped when I saw Hill Country Baskets. I was like "But wait, I don't even have the border on yet..." So funny! Looks like you had a blast.

Congratulations Sinta. It looks so lovely, lots of room to see all the quilts and get that perspective to be able to take in the whole quilt. Relax, take a breath and just enjoy the momemt.

Looks like a great guild to be a part of. I like that pineapple quilt - would make a good 'house warming' gift I think. Thanks for sharing today and welcome back!

Is the basket quilt being made by Nicole from Sisters Choice? Or is it in fact hers? I love the even tide quilt. Have you made that one? I've always liked it and I think I've got the pattern somewhere.
