Simply Splendid!

Happy Wednesday!  Popping into to share photos from our trip to Vermont.
Hotel Glamping is the BEST if you're driving and have the space.
I like to bring my own bar and order pizza in.  To lay around and read magazines, sew and not go out after a long drive is heaven.
We visited Ben & Jerry's for a factory tour and a scoop.  Very Fun.
Hey Ladies - the B&J classic cows.
Here are some of my favorites from the Quilt Festival.
One of TOP FAVORITES at the show.  I thought it should have gotten a lot more of the judges love.  If you know her, please tell her for me.
Best in Show - incredible artistry
What a beautiful basket quilt - congratulations Laura!
Congratulaitons Karen!
Congrats to my buddy Wendy!  I told some women about your potholder process.  It had a great location at the show.
Gladi did a wonderful Post on Vermont here.  Here is her quilt.
what a delight
I shared a couple on IG click on the sidebar link to see them.

Cynthia also has awesome photos on her Post on Vermont here.

Kathy, of Kathy's Quilts sent me these fun socks.  How stinking cute are they?  Quilters are the kindest and most thoughtful people.  I love the card too. 
She's been working on machine quilting her Red and White Broken dishes from the FunwithBarbswap2016.  She got the socks from Quilter's Ninepatch.

Do you have a favorite?  It think it is hard to pick with so many good ones.

Have a Happy Week.

  5. What a fun trip! I love your quilts on the bed and even a little one for the bar :0) Ben and Jerry's looks like fun too. Gorgeous quilts at the show! The handquilting on Shade Graden looks quite spectacular - especially the border! Also really love We are Stardust. There is so much to look at and enjoy on Wendy's quilt. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

  7. Lol, I was going to say precisely the same thing Valerie did! Note to self: take quilts for beds on fall trip with my sister! (We already take magazines and visit antique malls).

  13. Barb, thanks for sharing the pictures. All wonderful quilts. That Stars in a Time Warp is gorgeous, especially for those of us who did those stars. My top didn't look like that, that's for sure!
    And of course seeing Wendy's quilt win some accolades is a delight.
    Looks like you and your daughter had a great time!! Carrying your own bar implements is genius!!!
    Curious as to what cocktails you whipped up? Margaritas??
    ;-)

  14. It is hard to pick a favourite from all the quilts you shared! I guess the Razzle Dazzle calls to me because of its bright colours, and Circle of Friends for its quirkiness!

  15. Hotel Glamping at it's best! And that selfie with the B&J cows! Woody Jackson designed their carton cows, and used to do the craft fair circuit in the 80's. I love his stuff, and still have a very faded bandanna. Wendy's potholder quilt is impressive. That technique is going in the queue...

  16. Barb-1 of my favs was the blocks all in a multitude of stripes; thought it so clever. There were so many beauties to devour with the eye! Susan

  17. A lot of great quilts there Barb, I’m Sure it was hard to choose a favourite.
    Lovely for you spend time with Hannah and eat some Ben and Jerrys together and I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to your party room this year.

  20. I love how you "glam" up your hotel room. It looks so comfy-cozy! Thanks for sharing all these wonderful quilts. Nice to see Karen D.'s and Wendy's :) We went to B&J's a couple of years ago. Such a fun place to visit. Cute socks, too!

  21. Such beautiful quilts in this posts and I love the pictures from your hotel room. Looks so cosy and inviting and I definitely like the combination of quilts and cocktails! Those are always a main part of my memories when I go to the Houston quilt events in the fall: the people, the quilts and..... the margarita's! :-)

  22. I am so frustrated with Blogger that I boycotted for a few days - wah! L adore Beth Reisman's quilts. One of my favorites is "Elvis in Bloom. She is so clever and I love her whimsical ways. I wish I could have seen Laura and Karen's quilts in person. I saw Gladi's fabulous quilt at the museum and I am so thankful that she won "Best Bed Quilt"!
