On With The Show.....

by: Barb

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

A hex! The cupcake club is working on this style quilt. Jill's is finished, Barb & Mary's are in progress....

This whole cloth quilt was lovely in person--

On a different quilt - lovely feathers.

Part of the World Quilt Competition. It won best in Africa

over 50,000 pieces, nuf said

This was from China...
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 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!

I like the quilt with the eagles.

I am trying to figure out the quilt that has roses. They look cross stitched. Do you know what technique was used?
