A Trunk Show and A Quilt Show

Unfortunately most of the quilting in my life lately has been limited to looking at someone else's quilts. But beautiful quilts they were.

First was the trunk show. My quilt guild hosted Sue Paul. I can't remember laughing so hard in a long time. The quilts were beautiful and Sue has a wonderful sense of humor. She specializes in scrap quilts. I am not a scrap quilt lover. But she does a lot of what I call controlled scrappy - fabrics within a color family or a limited amount of different fabrics. I loved many of the quilts she brought. And I took lots of pictures. Too many to post here but here are a couple of my favorites:

This was a great week for my quilt guild. First the trunk show and then this weekend was our bi-annual quilt show. We had well over 200 quilts entered in the show and there were some really lovely quilts. Again, too many to show here but this was my pick for Viewer's Choice in the wallhanging category:



And my pick for Viewer's Choice in the full-size category:

I've been advised that I will need more baby quilts. I think now we have one in August, one in September (which I have learned will be a girl), two in October and two in November. I have two tops done so I'm well on the way.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody

Wonderful photographs. Does anyone know the name of the pattern ( the rotating flowers) in the first photo ? Any help would be most appreciated

That's one of Sue's original designs - it's called Brown Eyed Susan.
