The local quilt show season has begun. Friday and Saturday the York Quilters Guild held their quilt show. Because Friday was to be the nicer of the two days weather wise Kathy and decided that was the day we would head down to the show.
Although I enjoy going to the national shows, there is something to be said for the locals. These shows highlight quilts made by women who lust enjoy making beautiful quilts. They are not nationally know quilters who have published books and designed fabric lines. Although there are some artsy quits, most are the traditional. So. I thought I would share some of what we saw.
As soon as we entered, this is the quilt that met our eyes.
We then decided to go to the one end of the room and methodically work our way through all of the quilts making sure we did not miss any.
I like the colorful zebra. I wonder if we will see any like this when we go to Africa.
There is usually one portrait quilt at most shows.These always fascinate me.
Any quilt made with many small pieces catches my eye. Personally I think someone is a glutton for punishment to cut and resew so many small pieces.
Kathy enjoys Hawaiian applique. She has several books on it and has made some blocks using this technique.
Another thing Kathy likes is pansies. To me, this is such a clean and crisp looking quilt.
I like colorful quilts so I took this picture just because.
There was a display of quilts based on children’s books.
These are only a few of the quilts we saw. Next week I will share more.
