C'mon Along...


My husband and I had the opportunity to attend a quilt show just outside of Asheville a week ago last Friday. I am including here a photo-log and inviting you to ride along with me on a visual excursion of the highlights. I don't have the quilter's names or quilt titles (except for one); if you know these works and can supply me with any information that would be wonderful. This is a random sampling of quilts that appealed to me. There are some whole quilt shots, some details and a few photos with both, as indicated. Enjoy!

This quilt (Country Sunshine) was made by a friend if mine, Sandra Garrison;
 it was quilted by Theresa DeWalt. This is a detail shot, it is a nine block masterpiece.





All batiks, this was put together by the quilt-as-you-go method, I loved it!



This quilt (l) was the Best of Show... detail (r) shows ruching and hand quilting.

Stunning Baltimore Album (l) and incredible quilting details (r); two different shots, top and bottom

I love the bold, graphic visual impact of this organized scrap quilt, with detail shot(r).
How to top off a perfect morning? Lunch!
Homemade. Italian. Oh, yeah...


Wasn't that fun?

Life is Good!

Karen and I got to go on Friday also but we missed you by a few hours. Was that Best of Show quilt not the most wondrous thing?

The designer of the first block shown is Mary Sorenson, but I don't know if she is the maker of this particular block. I was in Mary's needleturn applique class in Houston a year ago and this is the block she taught. The class was fantastic. Mary does outstanding work, her stitching is amazing. If you ever have an opportunity to take from her, jump on it. She is very entertaining as well as so knowledgeable and really has a gift for teaching you to get good results--yes, even a beginner.

Would a treat ... a quilt show right in front of my computer. I would have spent hours and hours and hours just lingering in front of each one. ALL were beautiful ... we have similar (good) taste LOL ;-) Thanks for sharing and making a rainy afternoon a bright one!

Didn't I see you .... briefly pop in and out of my booth? I can't believe how busy I was all the way until 4:00 in the afternoon. Wish every show was that crazy, busy!!
