York County Quilters quilt show . . . . .

Yes, I'm still here but have been so busy with business related stuff, I just haven't seemed to have time to read blogs.  Tonight I am giving a lecture at a local guild and need to prepare for that soon.

But first a quick post on this past weekend's show. . . . 

First is a quilt that Dear Hubby really liked.  When the other half says he really likes a quilt, you listen !


a picture of the only wool quilt in the show !  I really need to convert these people !!  Notice it won a ribbon . . . . .


A few quilts from Teresa of Stitchin' Friends . . . . . and one won a ribbon!  Way to go Teresa.




I participated in this row quilt.  My row is the sixth one down.  I couldn't remember at first which row I had done until I looked at the piecing.  None of my points match !!  Now I wonder where my row quilt is?  I'm sure in the "needs to be quilted" box.



 This quilt was made from a class I taught many years ago.  Peg said she had just gotten around to quilting it recently.  Hey, it's done!  More than I can say for my class sample.


Here are a few more that I just liked . . . . .



The rows were kind of close together so it was hard to take a picture of the whole quilt.  I hope you enjoyed the few that I showed.

My next show is in New Bern on Halloween weekend.  I have a few days to get caught back up with housework, etc.  Then it's back to dying more wool and making more samples!

I also want to make a public apology to QuiltSue for not being able to participate in the Christmas Quilt-a-long.  I will definitely will be there in November.  I hope you can, too!

Blessings, Cathi

Thank you for taking us to the quilt show with you. There were some great quilts to look at. As for the public apology, it was not needed at all, but thank you.

Great pics of the quilt show, I think I like the one your husband picked out the most. I have started my first wool piece...got my wool washed and dried, felted? I think I am going to like this method of applieque!

Pretty quilts.....and pretty ribbons, too! I'm assuming they were handmade....

Thanks for showing a couple of my quilts Cathi. I thought the show was beautiful this year. Maybe next year we will see some of those cute pincushions in the "Miscellaneous" category.

I need to update my blog too, but just can't seem to find the time to do it.

What great artists. Did I ever tell you that I have a signature quilt from the 1800's in basically perfect condition.
