Quilt Show

This weekend, the Sandhills Quilt Guild held their annual Quilting in the Pines quilt show (link) and I attended with two quilting buddies and a young woman who we are attempted to lure to the dark side!  *lol*  There were a nice variety of quilts and more than usual vendors.... and a LOT of people viewing quilts so it was difficult getting photos of my favorites.

I love blue & white anything and this was a charming quilt that caught my eye.

As usual, not the best photos but I did try to take clear pictures.

This quilt didn't "wow" me the first time but it did draw me back for a closer look... and it became more impressive as I studied it.

Everything.... and I mean... everything on the outside border was cut out of whole cloth and appliqued, including the basket strips/lines.  Each was appliqued separately... it was amazing.

This quilt caught my attention because it was 1) fabulous, and 2) my blogging buddy Janet O. makes minis!

Yes, this is a mini.... and here's my hand for a comparison.

There are 1406 pieces in this little quilt... and ALL the quilting was done by hand with the tiniest stitches I've seen.  At first, I thought it was machine quilted but it wasn't!

I'll share some more photos tomorrow....


  1. Wow! These are fabulous quilts, Freda! :o)

  2. Oh, Love that mini! When I grow up maybe I will make quilts like that, but I doubt they will be hand quilted! : )

  3. OMG....that mini is just wow !!!!!!
