HELLO....I have some Quilt Show photos for you....I have been editing and have around 50 photos to share today...maybe I will break it up into two posts. And there are more to come....it was a great show this year.
But first I must share a photo from our Birthday Bash last night....Miss Violette Grace turned 3 on Wednesday, my birthday is tomorrow - 37- and my girlfriend Andrea is having her birthday on Tuesday so we (Andrea and I) threw ourselves a party....we did have a bit of help from the fam. She just had her baby 3 weeks ago so it was a great time for her to get out and drink some sangria!!
I made us Daisy crowns for the evening....there was fun had by all....there were lots of babies and kids it was just perfect! Now onto the show.....
As with every year I start with the fireman. How can you not they are a great beginning to the day.
They even take photos of themselves on Quilt Show day.
Then off to work hanging quilts.
Our quilt challenge this year was "inspired by Jean"....I did not get a quilt done this year. But we had great quilts from the gals at the shop....
Some more of the early morning helpers...
First thing in the morning - 7:30 am - the streets are pretty quite as the quilts go up all over town.
I loved this quilt hanging off the top of the railing...
The local "taxi" that took people to the Art Works building where there were lots of quilts and art. I don't think I ever made it there on Saturday. Next year.
LOVE this intersection of Cascade and Elm mom always hand picks a quilt for the wagon and goes down first thing in the morning and places it.
He doesn't look too happy at this time, I hope his day got better!
Those of you who don't know mom places every quilt. She looks at each one and make sure it has a special place. I think that is part of what makes our show so unique.
These are a series of basket quilts from a challenge - mom wanted to make sure they were all together.
A bit of a different basket quilt....love the contemporary fabric used.
I thought this was a very interesting quilt it reminded me of a painting rather than a quilt.
I will end this post with these amazing quilts by Joanne Myers - she was our inspirational instructor this year.
Have a great night!!!
