A Quilt Show

I went to a Quilt Show yesterday put on by a guild that I was seriously thinking of joining.  I wanted to join a guild because the only other quilters I know are you, my blogging friends.  Everything I've learned about quilting is from books or the Internet, and some television, but not much.  A big thank you to all of you who have shared your know-how.  I'm thinking of all of the quilt alongs I've joined over the years.  The online crafting community is really a wonderful thing.
As it turns out I'm not joining this guild because I don't think it would be a good fit for me.  There were some quilts that caught my eye that I will share.
I have not included the names and towns of the quilters, but if that is wrong and it's your quilt, let me know and I'll edit.
Little City Park.  A mother and daughter made this quilt, and the border is charming.  

The Purple Peacock.  The guild has a purple challenge going on, so there was alot of that color.  This peacock was so pretty and has alot of detail work.

Halloween Sampler.  This was the only Halloween quilt but cute.  The quilter appliqued images from different fabrics. 
I love those little pumpkin faces.
Open to Interpretation #4.  A very modern quilt. 
Quilty Barns; a Lori Holt pattern.  Love all of those traditional blocks.


Appalachian Trail.  The quilter hand quilted and hand appliqued this traditional design from Quiltmaker magazine.  The fabrics are 30's types.
Rick Rack Nines, a Bonnie Hunter design.  For all of the scrap lovers.
Cobblestone.  The quilter credits Joan Carpenter for teaching this pattern.

God Bless You and have a wonderful week.

Thank you for sharing such lovely pieces - have seen the house quilt pattern before and really like this one. Maybe you can start your own little sit and sew group.

What a lot of inspiration. Thank you for showing us a bit of the wonderful quilts you saw. Have you gone to one or two guild meetings as a guest to see what they are all about?

Bet the quilts were just as mouthwatering as those fish and chips.

Thanks for the little show. I do hope you can find a group soon, but if not, why not think of starting one yourself?
