Doesn't the background fabric in this quilt just make it glow! Is lime green now a neutral...could be!My friend Paula made the trip with me. She had a quilt in the show! This is Paula with her quilt. It was nice to hear other quilters congratulating her (those with quilts on display have little ribbons on their nametags.)
Taking photos at the show is no easy task. Between being bumped by quilters and funky lighting many of my photos had to be deleted (try as I might I could not edit out all the elbows, other camera, and tops of heads....) I did include the quilt tag in all of the photos.
Sandra Starley, and AQS certified appraiser out in Utah had two quilts on disply.
and the other was part of the Pilgrim and Roy challenge. The challenge quilts are on display for a year then are auctioned off the next year to raise money for the National Quilt Museum in Paducah. I had put some cash aside this year in hopes of bidding on one but by the time the auction came I was exhausted...I was glad to hear the next day that the quilt went for a lot more than I planned to spend so getting that rest didn't make me lose out on a quilt. There were several I liked in this year's challenge so maybe next year!
I've gone to the show for the past three years but this is the first time I've had my photo taken with the "super quiltman"...an older woman walked by and said, "how drunk did you have to get to put that suit on?" very funny...he is there every year as part of the tourist office. The whole town gets into promoting the show and I think it is fun! They even do a contest for window decorations....
I will post more photos this week of antique quilts and some on favorite vendors. Things are a bit crazy at the moment though. Mac, my Scottie dog, had some seizures while I was gone. I had to leave him at the vet this morning. He is going to need some TLC this week....as is my husband who was panicking about what he would do if anything happend to my Mac on is watch. And here I was thinking my husband just missed me...every time I called he asked if I could come home early!
