Another Quilt Show Is History



Our Guild's "Art Of Comfort" quilt show is history today, but I thought I would share some of the sights, and the quilts, from this past weekend as seen through the lens of my own camera. It was a terrific gathering of friends, fabric (vendors) and fun (quilts, of course!). I have posted below photos of quilts that caught my attention, these are just a mere drop in the bucket of all that was on exhibit. I am inspired, as always, and proud of the Guild to which I belong; such a richly talented group of quilters and friends!

Enjoy the show~












I was so happy to finally meet fellow blogger, Cathi, from Shakerwood Quilts
She made me feel like we were longtime friends!
I look forward to seeing her again in August, 
she will be presenting a program for our Guild then, I can't wait!

This beauty was a stunner... it won 1st in category, Best Hand Applique, 
Best Longarm Quilting and Viewer's Choice!
Can't you see why?

One of the quilt show chairs, with her lovely Floral Tiles quilt... well done, on both counts! Bravo!!

And then... as fast as it had gone up, it all come down. One by one, the quilts were returned to their
respective pillowcases and claimed by their owners. 
The process went like clockwork, a smooth Swiss clock.

...and a good time was had by all...
We'll be back; with another phenomenal show; in 2014!
Life is Good!

Those are wonderful quilts! That best of show is a stunner. But I see you standing before two quilts with ribbons (congrats). I remember the "jars" quilt. Can you tell me about the other one?

A lovely reflection of the great show. Congrats on ribbons! This is truly an amazing group of artisans. I overheard someone from out of town comment that the Forsyth piecers always have wonderful shows with outstanding quilts; I absolutely agree! Thanks for the post & your contributions to this great guild!
