Friday was a fun day. I went with Kathy and Becky to Birch Run to the second annual quilt expo at the convention center down there. Lots and lots of pretty quilts and quite a few vendors. The girls from our Q2 guild did well with the quilts entered. Quite a few of us won ribbons and the best of show went to Linda who does the fabulous paper piecing. They were displayed very nicely - so fun to see your quilt hanging with good lighting! I didn't take as many pictures as I thought I would, but here are a few.
This is Kathy's gorgeous machine quilted (domestic machine) piece. It took a blue ribbon. Her work is absolutely beautiful.
A lovely piece by Leslie! Her colors are scrumptious. There are rhinestones scattered around the ballet shoes, also.
This is a sweet, sweet piece. Dianne (she did a wool quilt that I featured several months ago) appliqued these wool pots of flowers on her father's army blanket. The flowers are doilies that I think she dyed. Isn't this wonderful? Dianne has lots and lots of talent!!
This is not from anyone in our guild - but it is smashing!! I love, love, love the colors. A beautiful piece.
After the show, there was a group of us went to a nice Italian restaurant and had lunch. When I got home, I had a nice nap!!! Lovely day.
