Quilts in the Mill

Good Monday Morning!

On Saturday I went to one of my favorite guild quilt shows hosted by the Courthouse Quilters.  They hold their bi-annual show at the Prallsville Stockton Mill.  The setting is a beautiful rustic grist mill on creek of the Delaware river, which was really rushing by with all the recent rain.


Here is my best in show - I just loved it


And here are some other that I especially liked -


what a great large scale print used for the border


what an interseting and unique log cabin quilt.


Pretty border treatment!


Just plain fun!


Great job once again ladies!
I'll post the rest of my favorites in a day or so.

I hope you find time to enjoying some sewing today!

    i can't resist anything with a simple vine on it so that one really shines for me but boy oh boy who can resist the fascinating results of that New York Beauty interpretation~!?!~

  16. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them all, but the first two really spoke to me. (they are saying things like "steal me," "make me, "love me"...)

    What a great show...thanks for sharing!

    In stitches, Teresa :o)

  20. Ooooh, that best in show is just gorgeous. And that vine on the applique border is pretty too. What a fun venue for a quilt show!

  21. Phooey! I too didn't have the show on my calendar. It would have been more fun than chores all weekend!

    Love the chedar but the log cabin is a color way I have in my files...I guess a "bucket lister" for me.

  22. I'm with you...the cheddar takes the show!! I have the Christmas Pickle pattern...saw it in Paducah a few years back and HAD to have it. LOL!
    You know, I have never made a log cabin. A few blocks, but not a whole quilt. I should put it on my "list." :-0 Every quilter should do one, doncha think? :-)
    Thanks for sharing the show with us!
    Blessings,
