Batavia Quilt Show

I helped in the Quilts of Valor booth at the Batavia Quilt show last weekend.  I thought you might like to see a few pictures.  The first pictures are of the challenge quilts.  I took a picture of the Challenge theme info.  It was easier than trying to remember all the info and retype it.

 Here are a few of the challenge quilts.

Thelma's 'box' quilt

made from men's ties

a chemo jacket, embellished for her mother

recycled scarf

recycled jeans and shirts, she used the cuffs of the sleeves, too.  She also machine quilted, hand quilted and tied this quilt.

This quilt used lots of 'non-quilty' items in it.  It really caught the attention of the kids and the men.
Sesame Street recycle quilt

I took a picture of her description, too.

I loved this quilt, using the tags from clothing.  I even took a few close-up pictures so that you could get a better look at some of the tags.

I also made a few purchases from the vendors.  I'll show some of those in another post.  Hope you liked the quilt show.  Wish I could have shown more, and taken better pictures.  I didn't have an entry in the show this year.  Oh well, there will always be next year....
