Saturday was a beautiful sunny day here in the mid-Atlantic. Perfect for a bus trip to the PA Quilt Extravaganza! This was the first time I've taken a bus trip to a quilt show and it's wonderful. I arrived without any driving fatique and I was ready to hit the vendors and the quilt displays.
Mary - it was nice chatting with you via cel phone, but it's not the same without you!
This was my "best in show"....those who know me, know I've never met a Toile' I didn't love.
Mark Twain collection

On a different quilt - lovely feathers.

Each cherry blossom was embroidered on a solid piece.
Look at this lovely paper piecing! So interesting
This quilt was encrusted with crystals, the photos do not give it justice (my photos anyway)
This is the back - what?
A crowd favorite. Everyone stood there naming the movies. It was such a delight and so whimsical. No ribbon....no foolin'...shame
Mary Poppins, Physcho, Titanic, ET, king and I. Each one was a work of art.
This was hand painted whole cloth with thread painting.
The variety of quilts was amazing. There was a lovely antique quilt exhibit, unfortunately this is the only photo I was able to take--
And now back to my regularly scheduled program. I hope you enjoyed the show!
