I wasn’t going to, but here I go again with more quilt pictures. On Frida, Kathy and I drove to York to their local guild’s quilt show. Because of Covid, it has been three years since their held their last show. The York Garden Club partnered with the guild this year so for a single admission price we got to see both shows. Keep in mind that this was a local show not a national show. The quilts were made by local quilters and not celebrities of the quilt world. I think the quilts these ladies made could easily stand up to any quilt in a national show. Here is a view of the room and the quilts.
Now, let’s go down onto the floor and get a close-up look at some of the quilts. Interspersed with the quilts I will also add some photos from the flower show.
Let’s start with the Best of Show. Most of the BOS quilts I have seen in other shows are intricate patterns. Here it was a pictorial quilt taking that honor.
Years ago Sunbonnet Sue. was a popular pattern at shows. I have seen much of her in recent years. However, she made a appearance at this show.
For a break, let’s look at a flower. I didn’t know what to expect at the flower show. Part of it offered what I would consider unique displays. Here is one.
If you ever wanted to try your hand at quilting but were a little “chicken” to give it a go maybe this quilt might be one to try.
All these buildings going around a circle had my eyes spinning.
I do like lilies and have some planted in our yard.
It seems appropriate to follow flowers with a flower quilt.
I like the log cabin block. This always seems like a serviceable quilt pattern.
I am a fan of the allium. I like how the small individual flowers make up the big flower.
All the pieces and colors in this one! I bet the quilter was glad she had three years to work on it.
Another interesting flower arrangement.
I do like colorful quilts. This one fits the bill.
To end this post you knew there had to be a cat quilt picture somewhere. OK, so this just happens to be a big cat.
I have some quilt and flower pictures that I will post next wee,
