Wanda and I prowled the vendor booths first. Today’s finds….a Laurel Birch Kitty Purse, 5 FQs and lunch. Oh…and there’s that little “I Love Quilts” sign for my quilting room.
The show was full of beautiful quilts and a fair number of vendors. There were 3 dealers with quilting systems, a vintage fabric/embellishment vendor, a jewelry vendor and untold fabric dealers. Fun! I got to actually SEE some of the new lines….that doesn’t happen in our area very often.
We strolled the quilt exhibits and I snapped some photos of Wanda’s quilts. Let’s start with her Guild Flower Challenge. Each person made a quilt with the theme of “If I were a flower, what would I be”…and they used colors to match their initials. Wanda’s was Iris using purple, green and yellow (no, I don’t remember the paint chip names to match her initials, lol). She did raw edge applique with lots of thread work on the flowers and the grasses at the bottom. She didn’t win the guild award, but she sure won my viewer’s choice award!
Wanda also had this year’s TQP 2 Color Challenge Quilt hung…and I got a cute picture of Wanda too!check out the crocheted hat she’s wearing. She actually paid good $$$ for that! Will be a cute but not very practical gardening hat.
Here’s a better picture of her blue and cream quilt. It was too big and they had to fold it to hang it, but you can still see the pattern…I think it’s gorgeous! She told me I couldn’t have this one.
We had lunch, I went around and snapped a few more shots, then it was time to beat feet home for tonight’s Community Dinner.
