What fun! The Quilt Show that is! Haven't been for nearly a decade so my friend Bea decided that it was time to change that. We drove through a pouring rain to Augusta just last Friday. I took over 200 photos. You'll be glad that I followed a blogging buddy's advice and pared them well back.
A friendly reminder not to touch the quilts or else...
~Bea takes a closer look~
The quilt above with the same shade of green as the lady's shirt, fascinated me, too. I first thought it was all blocks, but instead was made from strips to create the block and then give that wonderful edge.
~quilts all around~
If I lost all my photos of that day, I think I'd remember this one the longest — the quilts hanging on one side and the ladies all colorfully dressed and looking like quilts themselves on the other.
Now with only minor commentary...
~a comparison between hand stitching (Japanese) and long-arm stitching~
~a close-up of the quilt above it~
~A "Challenge" where each quilter created the same pattern in her choice of colors~
Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.
~the older I grow the more I know it!~
The quilt above and below were in the vintage quilt display.

~would love to try something like this~

Hope that you've enjoyed the quilt show from my corner of the globe. If you'd like to visit another quilt show, THIS one at Pat's is great.
My sister and I are making
drapes curtains today...joy unspeakable...so I'll catch you this evening when I have a chance to put my feet up!
Oh, do you quilt or do you pretend like I do?
Edited to Add: I have since discovered, much to my horror, that I was not supposed to publish photos without providing proper credit to the quilter. Though I could add the names of the quilters and the names of the quilts, I have purposely chosen not to do so based on how I would feel about having my name all over the WWW. Because this was posted over a week ago, I think that I fall into the category of going forward and begging forgiveness after the fact. I do promise not to feature quilt shows in the future. If you should have a question about a particular quilt, please contact me. Thank you!
