The above sign is over one of the many quilt shops with sales going on that weekend.
To the left, yours truly next to an ice sculpture of the word quilt, a spool of thread and some scissors near two of the shops.
See the post of Lancaster Loot from earlier
I have to show you the stuffed quilted deer head at the vendor from quiltblock in Exton PA
They have some totally unusual patterns.
This is a pic of the book sale, hundreds of books on sale for $5 each.
I spent a moment digging thru the stacks
And now for a few pics of quilts... remember you can click on any to see details.
I am showing mostly detail shots as I don't want to overwhelm your viewing pleasure, but had to take a pic of this hexie quilt, Roo Garden by Vicki Bonnhoff in Arizona. AWESOME.
I wasn't as struck by the horses on this quilt but the quilting.
The subtle color changes are due to thread color alone. Dense interesting quilting on a very large quilt.
I suspect a long-arm job. I wonder how a person like me quilting on my domestic machine can ever really compete with large quilts these days. Am I a dinosaur?
This is a detail of Vivaldi by Moonlight by Sandra Leichner. The quilting is awesome. Look at the dragonfly! They are the only color relief from an all white work quilt. It was show stopping for me.
These two photos are close ups of Hope Springs by Jan Martin
I show you details because the quilting was so outstanding. Again, suspect it's done on a long arm as it's a large quilt. The quilting is varied and tells a story again of dragonflies.
Seeing a lot of those at the moment.
I like the scene's quilted into the background. It makes an abstract design more approachable to me.
Beth Nufer and Clem Buzick.
Yep those spirals are pieced. The quilt is enormous. The quilting outstanding.
My husband attends local shows with me and seldom really likes a design. This one he liked enough to search out the ballot for viewer's choice and he voted for it!
He wants one like it....
