Wow..what a week! I was out of town Monday - Wednesday for a business conference and then came home to our guild's bi-annual quilt show, starting Thursday night with the pre-show party for guild members and their guests and then the show on Friday and Saturday. Saturday night was my youngest daughter's 23 birthday, so pizza and cake and friends over and lots of laughter ruled the house that night. Then Sunday, was a family celebration of birthdays, for my daughter Ellen, by brother Jack (a little older than 23) and my niece, Cindy, who actually could not come. I fixed a BBQ dinner complete with home made potato salad, slaw and baked beans with a vanilla/chocolate swirl cake. Sorry no picture, but this time I was just so tired pictures were not on my mind. I am showing some pictures from the show below, just a taste of all the beautiful quilts at the show. I will show all the prize winners when I get the official cd of the show, as the photographers pictures are much better than any I can take.
A gorgeous Mariner's compass - perfect points everywhere.
And here is my little butterfly quilt made in Year 2000. It has a special butterfly with the sparkly 2000 fabric.
And this quilt was made by a great quilter and friend Linda Dellinger. Her father was a Prisoner of War in the Vietnam War and she makes these quilts in honor of POW's. You can't see it very well in the picture, but names of POW's are embroidered on the blocks.
I won a door prize at the pre-show party. A FQ pack from Quilter's Loft in Mooresville, NC. What a wonderful prize. I did not take any ribbons on my quilts in the show, but I sure did come home with a special prize!
And just a little product endorsement - when you are tired, hungry, and need a treat, might I recommend a vanilla coffee milkshake from Chick-fil-A ! Oh my, so yummmmmmy!
