Road trip

We decided to do a day trip to Landrum for a quilt show.  Here are a  few of my favorites.....this was was bright and cheerful.  I liked the use of leftovers for the border, too. 

A different star set on point and mixed with a scrappy chain block.  The colors were great against the warm beige for an old fashion look. 

  This was done in civil war amazing collection of them.  The piecing was absolutely wonderful on this one.  I am not sure of the pattern, but it appears to be done in hexagon shape.  Just really great quilt.

What an unusual setting for this small quilt---with leaves on 2 sides of the bargello.  It definitely spoke to me.

The cranes in this art quilt were so striking.  It is all machine appliqued with raw edges.  Lots of layers of fabric and great shading.

This was so special......a small quilt of postcards sent to parents from a daughter as she traveled the world.  The quilter's detail was outstanding. 

  One more to share.  Mountains created from bargello strips.....from a Georgia Bonesteel class.  The grand lady of  lap quilting was there as the featured quilter, and co-founder of the Landrum guild.  It was special to get to talk to her as she was a huge influence on me when I began quilting in the early 1980's. 
    We ate a late lunch at The Hare and Hound Pub in town and walked the small downtown area.  Neat shops that we will have to browse on another trip. 
    Home and finally some nice to see the bird bath and the falls full again.  The frogs gave us a very loud serenade in the evening.  They were loving it apparently.   So no sewing for a  couple days.....I am ready to begin quilting on the String Me Along. Yay!
Happy stitching.
