In all my years of sewing and a few of quilting, I have never attended a quilt show. A friend in my small group invited us to her guild's show. Another friend from small group and I decided to go. I don't know exactly what I expected but not what I saw, I thought there might be 15-20 quilts. Boy was I wrong, there were 167 beautiful quilts on display! The show was held just a couple of miles down the road at my old church. This is the church I grew up in. Dan & I were married here and the boys were raised in this church.
The quilts were draped over the pews, hanging in the windows and laying everywhere. We weren’t allowed to touch any, which about killed me. I’m a very textile person. Only the ladies with the gloves on could touch the quilts.
Of course, I came away with all sorts of new ideas to add to my "to-do" list.
Here are a few of my favorites...
