More from the Georgetown Quilt and Stitchery show

First, we did not let being accused of shoplifting dampen our day on Saturday.  We made many jokes about how closely we must resemble an organized shoplifting ring, the four of us, three generations. And, there was lots of speculation about how we might have passed that piece of fabric around so that the vendor might lose sight of it.  Like something in a movie.  Laugh it off. 

Anyway, that wasn’t what we were there for and it wasn’t the most important part of the day. 

These are more quilts from the show. 

I loved the perfect points in this quilt.  Like saw blades.


Yummy, yummy, yummy!  Look at the precision of this one. 



A riot of color.  Look at how the cornerstones were pieced. 


Black and white and red.  Still a favorite.


I love stars 


and circles in quilts.


This small quilt was precious.  A lovely little heart.


And another explosion of color.  Wow! 


So, the next post will be special techniques.  Applique and embroidery.  And, my choice for best of show.  Because I could only choose one.  But, there were two that needed it.

The baby quilt literally asked me to STOP quilting on it Sunday evening. 


It was startling as it shouted, “please, please, please, stop!  No more!”  At least that’s what it seemed like.  I kept trying to put things in the border and I hated each and every one of them.  So, I picked them out and folded over the binding.  The quilt is happy again.  And, I am happy again.  Should be finished by the weekend. 

Everybody have a great Tuesday.  Plan is to get the silk whole cloth pin basted this weekend, even if I don’t have time to sew a single stitch in it.  Me and my Bernina are itching to get started on that.

Love the sawtooth star quilt, the way the colors fade in and out. And the cool corner blocks with the "wavy" edge illusion.

It does sometimes feel like the quilts shout at me, too, but mostly for poor color choices in the layout. I've decided that only a show panel will take much issue with my stumbling attempts to learn to FMQ-- and to plan what to quilt where, most people stand back further and don't see the mistakes or judge the density. I'm still hoping one day to get to show quality quilting, but it won't be while I'm working full time and commuting.

They are all so beautiful & I am looking forward to seeing the finished baby quilt. If you have a moment, another blogger I read asked a quilting question that I believe you are very qualified to answer.

thanks for all the great photos! I loved the saw tooth quilt especially.
We don't have many quilt shows in England, so I always enjoy yours!
