Quilt Show

I went to my first ever quilt show yesterday with my friend Anna from Quiltmom's Journey. We saw so many beautiful quilts and wall hangings - and we shopped, oh did we shop. HA HA.
Today though, I am just going to show you some of the fantastic things I saw. Please forgive my not so great photos, I was at the mercy of my iPhone as I didn't think we could take cameras in. I was wrong! Everyone had a decent camera in there but me. Oh well.
Here you go:

This was the biggest cathedral window quilt I have ever seen - 100 percent done by hand according to one of the volunteers.

You cannot tell from my picture, but the creator of this one also free motion quilted Celtic knots and ropes. It was stunning.

Can you tell how small this is? Check out the sign for it, and how it compares - they all had the same size sign. This piece was super small and the points for every corner were amazingly perfect.

Hey!! How did that get in there?? ha ha

Another volunteer told me that the creator of this quilt is an amazing artist with a button collection so large, she has it cataloged! *jealous!!
There are many more pictures, but I don't want to over whelm.


  1. Those are some beautiful quilts! Going to a quilt show always inspires me to do more quilting and try some new techniques. Plus I LOVE all the vendors in one place. Glad you enjoyed the show!

  2. Looks like you had a wonderful time, lots to inspire you and help you justify all that shopping!

    Thought of you when I saw this:

  3. Okay, I'm going to send you the link in an email, that didn't work right, it just takes you to the shop!

  4. OMG. I have never been to a quilt show either. I would love to go. Your iphone did a great job. The pictures are beautiful. I'm so glad you got to go.

  5. Thank you for the lovely pictures. Number one is especially gorgeous. It looks like a Piece O'Cake design.

  6. Beautiful quilts! Thanks for sharing.

  7. It was great fun Carolyn and the photos worked out just great. We will have to do it again- there will be more quilt shows to visit I am sure.
    The shopping was great too.
