Suwanne Valley


This lady was giving a talk on old quilts that folks had brought in. She was dating them and giving a little history about each quilt.

There were ladies on the porch doing all sorts of hand work.

Dressed in Pioneer costumes.


And I can't say that I ever have been to a Quilt show where there was live Blue Grass music.

It was definitely a little different then any other quilt show I have ever been to. But it was a beautiful day to be outside and enjoy the sunshine and warm breeze.

That is so awesome. I loved the costumes, not too keen on the hair styles though, but well done.
yeah imagine bluegrass music to show off quilts.

How fun! I'm such a bluegrass music fan and the period costumes...what a great idea for a quilt show. Love it.

Nothing like a little toe-tapping music to go along with some beautiful quilts!

Wow, that looks like it was a great day. I'm very lucky to have a husband that's a bluegrass musician so I quilt by those beautiful tunes all the time.

Seems it was a lot more informative than most quilt shows! I would have loved to hear about the old quilts, how you can tell when they were made based on the style and fabric...

Cheers,
Christine
