Spring Quilt show

Just thought I would share a few pictures from an outdoor spring quilt show. It was so fun walking through the Botanical gardens with all of the quilts waving in the breeze. The weather was fine, and the day not too hot.

Some of these quilts were truly amazing.



These were very quaint.


I think this is my favorite one. I have this pattern and plan to make it (one day :-) I've already started collecting the blue fabrics.

Love the inspiration of a quilt show. It always makes me want to come home and sew, sew, sew!

Happy Quilting!

I agree about the inspiration of quilt shows. I really like the one with the lighthouses. What a beautiful setting to have a quilt show, wish I could have gone.

How glorious! I first was going to say that I liked the one with the community buildings, then I thought, "No, I like the last one with the blues," then I decided I liked them all so much I couldn't pick a favorite!

All of these quilts are beautiful. Being a collector of anything to do with lighthouses, I must admit the lighthouse one is my favorite. Thank you for sharing these with us.

Oh...I just went back and enlarged them and LOVE the one that says Quilting Is....in the middle of it...and then all those great things in the blocks surrounding it. I'd love to do one like that!!!

Thanks for the virtual quilt show. I love the one with all the lighthouses. I've made that blue quilt only mine was pink and green. I think it was the 2nd quilt I ever made, love the effect it gives.
