Quilt Show

Well, we got back from Jamaica in the week hours of Saturday morning.  A friend picked me up at 11:30am, and we headed out to the Faithful Circles quilt show.  I only took pictures of the quilts that caught my very sleepy eye.

with sewing machines on it, I couldn't pass this one up

I love the rabbit stealing the block

can't pass up a Quilt of Valor

I've seen this pattern, but, not the finished quilt before

Of course this next one caught my eye (Harry Potter fan that I am).  It was made by a 17 year old (her first quilt).

tiny hexies

This quilt is GREAT!  We all know who has 'broken the law' quilt show wise.

I liked the trees on this one

I haven't had time to enter my sewing room since I left on the first trip, almost a month ago.  I'm headed up shortly, to see if I can 'find' it under all the stuff I brought home from my trips.  I have a Quilts of Valor sew-in on Tuesday, and I need to find my project to work on. 

I did see one other thing at this quilt show.  In Texas, I found me a 301 table, but, the one I found was for a short bed 301, and both of my machines are long beds.  There was a lady in a booth, at the quilt show, that was selling a short bed 301 and a long bed 301 table.  I wish I had been more awake, so that I could have asked if she would switch tables with me (she had large gaps, since the table was for a long bed machine). 


  1. Gorgeous quilts and the chain gang is hilarious - provided a great morning laugh! Thanks for sharing. ~Jeanne

  2. thanks for sharing those lovely quilts--I especially like the hexagons with Hydrangeas one...great colors....hugs, Julierose

  3. Thank you for sharing such pretties with us.

  4. Wonderful show, I like that they're all "doable". The HP quilt is pretty impressive for a first quilt, I recognize some of the blocks as paper pieced.

  5. Wow gorgeous quilt. Doesn't a featherweight table fit a 301 short bed?
