Illinois Valley Quilter's Guild Quilt Show

Today I went to the IVQG Quilt Show.  Last December, I won a quilt that this guild made for a breast cancer group to raffle off.  That quilt is now on my bed.  I love it! 

Right off the bat, I saw a framed hexie quilt. (you can click on each picture to make it larger).

I had to laugh at this next one.  So cute!

This next quilt is a great way to 'frame' a small 'picture' and turn it into a lovely large bed quilt.

I took a picture of this next quilt to encourage a blogging buddy of mine (Terri) who has just tried crumb piecing in the past week or so.

This next quilt reminds me of the modern blocks I made last year for a Treadle On block exchange.  I really need to put my blocks together.

This is a wonderfully whimsical quilt.

Captain Dick, who started Treadle On, made a similar quilt a while back.  It's on my 'bucket list'.

The guild also had a great pin cushion display (darn, not for sale;)
These are the last of the quilts that I took pictures of. 

I had a fun day.  I stopped at 5 thrift stores, went to the quilt show, and also visited a quilt shop (where I ran into Mary).  I bought backing fabric for at least 6 quilts at the quilt shop. 

Hope you are having a great weekend, too!
