Quilt Show

My friend and I took a little trip to a Quilt Show.

We stayed 3 days there and it was a very nice “quilt vacation” , we had fun, saw beautiful quilts and learned new things.

That’s how our trip started, at the train station:

I took a lot more pictures, everything was so interesting.

And I could have taken even more, but we also wanted to see the new fabrics and all the other quilt goodies and there were workshops, too! So much to see and do and so little time. We just could not make to visit one of the exhibition, that was a pity.

I came home quite tired yesterday, but oh so happy! ;-)))

It was a great weekend!

That’s all for now,

have a lovely and creative week!

Thanks for sharing your trip - the quilts were wonderful and such lovely inspiration. Nothing nicer than going away for a few days on a "quilting trip"

Love the kaleidoscope one too- the detail you showed was amazing.

I'm sure you had a lovely time shopping for wonderful "hard to get locally" treasures.
Stephanie said…
How fun for you! Thanks for sharing these gorgeous quilts and vests. My favorite is the last photo...tall houses/buildings. Isn't shoppin the best part?

Hi Suzie... Thank for sharing your quilt trip with us. A trip to quiltshow with a friend is always a lot of fun! Did you have any chance to buy some new fabric?
Sounds like my idea of the perfect weekend! Thanks for sharing so many lovely inspirational photos of the quilts with us. Hope you found time to buy some supplies :)

Suzie, there are definitely some amazingly talented people in our world aren't there?I adore the fish, that is very clever. It sounds like you had a wonderful time, just what the doctor ordered, a bit of rest and relaxation,and treating yourself.

Great pics, Suzie, but I have to ask...this may sound silly....

BUT - there REALLY wasn't 365 vests, were there?

BUT - if there were - I'd be in VEST HEAVEN!!!
