Ninigret Quilt Show

Hi Quilters and Friends! 
Today I'm sharing photos from last weekend's Ninigret Quilt Show.
Here is my favorite quilt in the show. 
 I love the texture and variety of these flowers.
What a bold mix of fabrics and textures.  
So I'd like to take this opportunity to say that guild shows are my favorite shows.  The quilts are made with love.  You can see that.  Are they all perfect?  Absolutely not but they are REAL.

A Fun With Barb Swap Quilt made by Barbara.
 I really like that dusty lavender setting fabric.  It works so well with the repro churn dash blocks.
Tina's Modern Swap Quilt with partial seams.  I'm always amazed by Tina's creative settings.
Great historic quilt, I wish I knew more about it.
 It won viewers choice too.  We have a viewers choice award each of the 3 days and there 3 different winners.  I love that.
This quilt was made from a kit and is it stunning!  As you can see it won many well deserved awards.
I know this is hard to read so I'll just tell you, her husband gave her the kit for Christmas.  It took over 225 hours.  Great name for it.
Beautiful Applique' quilt and sweet story.
Another great quilt by Susan.  Ya'll know I love Frida!
Another incredible quilt by Tina.  This is her temperature quilt.  Her machine quilting is wonderful.  She won a well earned NQA Outstanding Achievement in Quilting award.  Congratulations Tina!
Here are a couple of wonderful President Quilts and a great Hexie Halloween Quilt.
What a nice surprise!  Alice Payne was awarded one of the Vendors Choice Ribbons.  Thank you CT Quiltworks!
My Gifts from the Sea Quilt was awarded a ribbon for use of Embellishments 😊
 As you might have seen on Instagram, I won the Best of Show award for my Jubilee Quilt.  The lighting wasn't great at the time I took the photo so I has a lot of shadows.
I always wondered how it would be to win this award, but I never imagined actually winning it.
 I also received a Vendors Ribbon from Barbara of Six Gables Designs.  Thank you Barbara!
There were many many more beautiful quilts in the show, but I was busy working a lot of the time I was there so I missed taking many of them.  I am also trying to "live in the moment" more.

I'll be presenting a lecture at First Dutchess Quilters Tomorrow night.  Click here for details.
 It will be nice to have a completely free week next week.  In the meantime, I'm with coco.....

  1. all such beautiful quilts - I have been to several guild quilt shows and yes they are great - the other shows are great too but the quilts seem much more "professional" and they are great of course but different!

    I spent a long time this morning looking up Frida... what an amazing woman! What she endured! I want to learn research her life and work more now.

    Yes... one thing I've learned after loosing my husband 7 years ago and the journey with my new life in the smoky mtns and this old house is to take one day at a time and soak it all in....

  28. Lots of ribbons Barb - well deserved ! I'm with you - I love small guild shows. I did always sort of wish my guild in MA had judging and ribbons.... for the feedback, the fun, the recognition. Thanks for sharing the photos - so much beauty. I know what you mean - balancing taking photos with the blog in mind... versus just being in the moment.

  29. Thanks for sharing the quilt show pics! I don't get to go to very many shows and the pics always turn out so dingy. Love the floral quilt with the different textured flowers. Wowsers! Would have loved to see that one in person. So sweet to see your Alice Payne quilt again.That's one of my all time faves of your quilts!

  32. Wow -- what a great collection of quilts. And Congratulations on your ribbons -- very well deserved! I love that first quilt too -- such pretty colors and textures. Apparently I haven't been to a quilt show in a long time -- I didn't realize they were making the distinction between types of machine quilting -- it took me a minute to think of what track mounted meant LOL.
