This past weekend was our guild show and it was Bee-You-Tea-FUL!
The men in my house don’t get the whole quilt show thing…..Twin # 2 says ” you’re going to another quilt show, haven’t you seen them all?”…..ummmm, what?
it was so great to see all the work that guild has been doing, almost all of them I had not seen before.
oh look, there’s one of mine….done 18 hours before drop-off and tortured me every step of the way, but it looks nice hanging there with a ribbon.
And right as you walk into the show, there’s another of mine
um, yes, that’s a Best of Show- Machine Quilted ribbon on it. And Best Hand Applique.
If you’d like to know more about this quilt, jump back tohere
And right there in the next front panel was the most amazing Best of Show – Hand Quilting by Dawn Hayes. The piecing is perfection and her quilting stitches are so tiny and even and perfect!!!
well of course I had to visit the vendors, it would be rude not to.
I picked up these little ones—only 2 1/4″ long!! perfect for travelling.
and because someone I know has standing instructions to “buy me whatever you think I need”, there just might be another pair in my package.
It’s always so energizing to go to the shows, to see the old friends, make some new ones, and then run home to work on those lonely projects that have been ignored, or maybe start a new one for next show.
I came home and prepped some hexies…..just in case another trip comes up, I have a project to take along.
Hugs and Stitches!
