From the Quilt Show and fabric......oh my!

  A few photos--borrowed/stolen from other members-- to share from our guild quilt show that I viewed on Sunday.



   Even though I have only tried one of the one block wonder quilts, this one was fascinating to me.  You have to look close to see the center portion is a printed panel!  The OBW blocks fill the bottom and part of the sides.  Of course, it helped my interest because of the floral garden theme.  I thought it was a beauty.








   This was a miniature entry made by Ruth Bartholomew, one of the show chairmen.  It is a tribute to  Ida Strauss, who was on the Titanic when it sunk.  Ruth was recently in the musical locally and played the part of Ida.  and she received great reviews.   The story behind the art creates that magical quality to make it so special.  Great job, Ruth.




  And the minute I turned the corner and saw this, I knew Sarge had made it!  It is full of glitter and sparkles, and has a personality all its own.....just like the quilter!

    And Sarge is also a very serious quilter......her hexie project, Blooming Through Grief shows it.   She literally stitched her heart into this one. 








   The featured quilter was Jaylynn, a wonderful friend and prolific quilter.  This has always been one of my favorite quilts that she made.  It features her Oriental fabric collection and it is just glorious in person.




 

 And the fabric.....oh, my! 





   The photo should explain that quickly enough.  A guild fund raiser is always a big fat quarter basket.  I bought a few tickets of course.  Janet was in charge this year and as per her usual self, she did an outstanding job.  So when the phone call came and said I won, oh, my!






   By her count there are about 40 yards of fabric in fat quarters along with a few books.    I spotted some wonderful blues, and greens,  a few orange ones for pumpkins I think, and a couple of florals.   All in all, just fun and many thanks to the fabric  muse that sent them my way.


  I survived the dentist appointment this morning and am sipping warm tea to ease the ache.  A new book is just the thing to help. 
Happy stitching.

Just beautiful quilts. And the prize basket, wow. At our show, I had to deliver prize winning baskets to others not there which was hard. Looks like great greens, the hardest color I ever try to find. Hope you are all inspired up.

Wow, hard to even imagine 40 yards of fat quarters to play with, and that book Fat Quarter Friendly is one I've had for years, what a sweet win for you. Thanks for sharing the quilt show with us.

I thought the One Block Wonder quilt was one of yours. The floral garden looks like something you would do. I love it! All the quilts are spectacular but the Flamingo made me laugh out loud. Congrats on you BIG win! 40 yards of fat quarters is a goldmine in my books. Have fun with the treasure basket.
