One of the things that we enjoy about September is that the annual Quilt Extravaganza is held the third weekend of the month out at Oaks, which is near Philadelphia. Of course we go. Kathy really likes the vendors that come to this show. I like the buffet they serve at lunch. What can I say.
The quilts on display are more artsy than traditional as you will see. Quilts from other countries are also displayed.
Having just been to Australia, the quilts from that country grabbed our attention. For anyone who likes to ride a carousel, this one won for best use of color.
This is one of the more traditional looking quilts on display.
I happen to like big cats.
Imagine cutting all of these small pieces.
At first I thought this was a vet until I read the sign.
So in love but separated by life circumstances. Hope they are going to the same place.
The quilting on this one was amazing.
Loved this one from South Africa.
This year one artist was showcases. All of these quilts were made by the same person. I think you can figure out what kind of quilt she enjoys.
These I just liked.
What a nice birthday present.
Again, I just liked this.
Another Australian quilt.
And one more from South Africa.
Not all vendors sell quilting supplies. I was able to do some early Christmas shopping for Kathy.
I just hope I don’t forget where I put it for safe keeping when it is time to wrap it.
Well, this is the last big quilt show in our area until March of next year when it is back to Lancaster. There might be another local guild show before then. If there is you can be sure we will be there.
