It's quilt show season around the Mid-Atlantic y'all!
I will be doing demos at our local guild show this weekend and would love to meet you! It's the Annapolis Quilts by the Bay show Saturday and Sunday.
Two other guilds had shows I attended so I wondered if you'd enjoy seeing a few quilts and hearing of my adventures? Here goes...
(sewpreetiquilts) and I met at the QU show in Virginia.
What a fun time full of laughter and shopping and quilt viewing we had!
As I said in the last post, blogging has brought me friends across the miles, and this time we live within an hour of each other. Preeti is full of life and fun, smart and sassy and just my kind of person!!
She is exceptional at looking at a geometric design and knowing almost instantly how they constructed it. The really interesting thing to me is that we both love quilting but gravitate to the opposite ends of the spectrum. The fact that we see different aspects of a quilt only enhanced both our experiences.
I'm looking forward to seeing her more often.
I fell for this quilt

This challenge quilt called "I'm just saying" by Dianne H. Thomas interested me a lot. She noticed the shape of a guitar and the shape of a woman, ahem, one with a waist that is, were similar.
I love to see original work and feel it gives me new ways to look at the world. It's a glimpse into an artist's mind. Please note that art and good construction technique go together.
The last one I want to share is of course a hexi

Preeti and I spent all day at the show, shopping and looking and chatting and it made the show so much fun!
On to the Bayside Quilters show in Easton Maryland
I was lucky enough to speak to this group of fun talented artistic quilters this year, as well as teach two classes. When I came to the show, it was so much fun to see them again and renew friendships.
Their display was awesome

I had a fun day at this show, but oh the traffic coming and going! The Eastern Shore of Maryland is a lovely place but a popular place especially on summer weekends. Cole came from this area, way back 13 years ago. He stayed home for these shows but in solidarity and poodle love I share this last quilt...
