Town and Country Quilters Show

Last week my quilt guild held their bi-annual quilt show.  There’s always such a lot of work going on  behind the scenes to organize such an event.  With two guest exhibitors, and plenty of quilts from club members, there was plenty to feast our eyes on.  Then there were the merchants, all ready to entice us with all sorts of goodies.  I did make a few small purchases, I must admit, things which just had to come home with me.  Here are just a few of the quilts on display which caught my attention.

Our guild members are a very talented bunch, and there were plenty more which I loved.  We wandered up and down the rows, checked out the many merchants, stopped and chatted to friends and had a great time.  Then the cafe beckoned for a most welcome sit down, and enjoyed a delicious sandwich and scone for lunch.  Congratulations to all involved for all the hard work in organizing and running the show.

with no quilt shops here sometimes I think I like to go to shows to shop almost more than to look at the quilts!

First of all, so very,very happy for your test results Jenny!! And your message is a fantastic one. Like your country, we really have no excuse for not taking care of these things for our health...it's all free. Really no excuse. Meanwhile, always a pleasure to see pretty quilts.

You are correct. Quilt Shows area huge undertaking and takes many people working many long hours. There is always so much temptation, I am surprised you only picked a few items. Thank you for sharing the beauty. The Baa Baa sheep are so cute :-)
