Quilt Show Part One:

This past Friday I went to the Block Party Quilters annual show and took a whole bunch of photos, way too many for one post.  In addition to the quilts, there were lots of vendors and the temptations were mighty.  I resisted....mostly. As you can kind of see, the quilts on the first floor were surrounded by the vendors, and then smaller quilts were shown on the second floor which is a balcony that makes picture-taking a challenge.



Janet Fogg was the featured quilter.  I really liked her cat quilts!


Here's a cat that reminded me of one of mine from log ago.



Isn't this beautiful butterfly colorful?


Whenever I go to quilt shows, I look for crazy quilts, and they are usually few in number and hard to find. This time, small but interesting, they were all on on one wall up in the balcony.






Here's one more shot of Janet's work from the balcony, a daisy, a seahorse, and another cat, and a partial view of two others.


That's it for this installment. (Remember, if you double click on the photos, you can see the details.) I'm off to the grocery store.  Bye.

Quilts amaze me. I would never have the patience for that kind of work.

I have a friend that makes the most amazing quilts. She works in a local quilt store so she gets plenty of inspiration and first hit at all the pretty new fabrics.

Lucky you, it looks like a terrific quilt show, lots of talented quilters participating. I like that bike one in the foreground on the last picture.
