Quilt Show Visit

Our local quilt guild in DeRidder held their quilt show today.

Here is what my Mom, Hub, and I saw:

This crazy one is my favorite. I think it is great that the oddball rectangles were so well placed.

Quilt Diva was a hit.

And what little (or big) girl would not like this pinky?

Sew bowtiful!

And why did I throw away that HUGE dogfood bag? This is a neat idea.

PS: my quilter mom and I hate that modern quilters do not hand quilt anymore. They just do the piecing, and an expensive machine does the quilting.

Oh- yes- I agree- I love the old hand-quilted pieces. There is nothing quite like them. The machine ones are nice but lack the "feel" of a hand quilted piece. I love a good quilt show and have not been in years. xo Diana

Wow! I wish I could quilt! (I can't sew a button back on!). I love quilt diva!

Quilt Diva is a honey.....I wonder if I could use the softener salt bags like that?

I love the pink with the bow and hand sewn is always so much better! Sweet hugs! I LOVE quilts!

Those quilts are beautiful. The one with the pink bow is very unique.

De eerste vind ik het mooiste en die tas is ook geweldig.

I met a family, three daughters aged 11-13, who won 1st , 2nd, and 3rd place in the Rapides Parish fair this year. They hand quilted their entries. All three went on the win in the state fair. Very impressive.
