Stars in the Valley Part I

Happy Monday Morning!


Wow, another local guild quilt show with amazing quilts!
Saturday was a beautiful day for a drive up north for a quilt show. There were many wonderful vendors, a local tea room catering lunch and a sweet table - quilt heaven.

The above quilt won best in show and it is spectacular. It was displayed at our show last fall and it was wonderful to see it again!

What a lovely applique quilt - blue ribbon winner!





The blueberries on this quilt looked really real. They are stuffed and embroidered and they were amazing.


Pretty and vibrant pineapple!


I thought this was very pretty.


The next quilt was also at our show. I have a really strong reaction to this quilt. I just love the vibrant colors on that chocolate background. I find myself looking at it many times and from different distances. I think its because I like strong contrast in quilts.

This one is for Jill -


A wonderful Nine-patch. That one vertical and horizontal row is a real game changer in the setting of this one.

Pretty border, elevates this quilt


Okay, here are a few words regarding credits. I know that I should be giving credit to quilt makers. However, in the real world, I'm not taking notes or keeping a running list as I enjoy and take these photos. I know some of the women who have made these quilts, but I don't think its quite fair to name some and not others. I endeavor to do better in the future. In the meantime, I think that most blog browsers are looking for inspiration and to enjoy the beauty of quilting. That is my intention when I post on a local quilt show.

I hope you enjoyed these, I will post on the rest of show soon.
