A Special Quilt Show from Quilting with Claire

I’ve always wanted to find out more about my fellow quilters and I was happy to come and meet the Lennoxville Guild members during the annual quilt show on September 7th, 2019 in Sherbrooke.

I just got back from our Charlotte Quilters' Guild's annual Carolina Lily Quilt Show.  WOW!  If my mom hadn't needed to get back home to her puppy, I'd STILL be there oohing and ahhing over all those gorgeous quilts, and spending money at vendor booths.  They have fabulous items for sale in the boutique as well.  The show will be open until 4 PM today and then again on Saturday from 9 AM to 4 PM, and I highly recommend that you try to get over there if you're at all local.  The quilt show is ...

OUR ANNUAL PILLOWCASE DAY from The Proficient Needle

For the past several years, my southern quilt group has sponsored a sewing day for Ryan's Case for Smiles.  The Tampa Bay group is very active, with many scheduled sew days at various quilt shops, and with private groups.

Last Wednesday, three coordinators arrived, loaded down with sergers, fabric, and sewing machine kits.  We began at 11 am, and with the help of many friends and neighbours to tackle the non-sewing jobs, such as pinning, turning, pick up and delivery to the various machines, and folding the completed pillowcases.

We completed 290 pillowcases by 2:45, and another 200 ...

Scraps galore from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Can you believe the weather? It's glorious! A bit cooler today, but still above zero and so nice to get out and walk. And the sidewalks are clear of ice, although one does have to be careful as there are still a few patches of hidden ice, for the most part, they are clear. That makes me very happy.

I got a lot done yesterday. It was a super productive sewing day (Sit n Sew) which doesn't happen often. I'll share that with you tomorrow. Today it's all about the scraps. I was waiting to get ...

Kitsap County Quilt Show from Humble Quilts

  Here is a quilt using a lot of my favorite mourning purples! I wouldn't have thought to add in the red HST but after seeing the border (next photo) I understand why she did.

I'm a fan of the Danish Nisse, which is similar to a gnome!! So stinkin' cute!

Little house quilts are as charming as ever. 

Be sure to read the story below about this quilt. 

What a sweet and precious family quilt.

I liked the quilting and color on this quilt.

There's a sampling of the quilts that caught my eye!

Have a wonderful ...

SBQG Quilt Show Recap from Quilting with Kimberly

This past weekend my local quilt guild, the South Bay Quilt Guild, held it’s annual quilt show at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center in Torrance, CA. It was a great show! Lots of beautiful quilts, a quilt auction, featured artist, vendors and challenge quilts were on display. I thought you might like to see a few photos. The members worked so hard to make this a fabulous event and their hard work and efforts certainly paid off!

The show was well attended by many from the local community. Both days (Saturday and Sunday) saw big crowds which, of course ...

Road to California, 2020, Part 2: Shopping! from Gefilte Quilt

Last week, I showed off some of my favorite quilts from Road to California 2020 show. Now let's get to the fun stuff: Shopping! Disclaimer: If you click on these links, I don't make any money. But you might lose money, because this merchandise is (often) thrilling!

If there's one attribute that unites Road to California quilts - whether the top is pieced, appliqued, embroidered, fused, stapled, and/or mutilated - it's this: dazzling, immaculate, professional-grade quilting - the stuff that holds the three layers together.

That's why, every year, I walk out of juried show. and into ...

Road to California 2020, Part I: The Quilt Show from Gefilte Quilt

Road to California, a terrific quilt show, took place last week, ending on Sunday. There was something for everyone - traditional, art, modern, and group quilts; challenges, guild raffle quilts, and more than a dozen wildly diverse special exhibits. Great classes. Hallway massage. Uniformed Boy Scouts who, for a small donation, watch your bags while you shop. Tons of vendors.

Also, it's next to a mellow, convenient little airport - you could walk from the Ontario, California airport to the convention center. So it's not surprising that this warm and welcoming show attracts 50,000 viewers, plus entrants and vendors ...

First Ladies Quilt from caledonia quilter

Lordy, I'm behind with my pretty-quilts-pictures.  I finished this at the end of October.  In general, I don't post pics until after the customer has picked up the quilt, just in case, and this gal was unable to get here for a while because her own life was pretty hectic at the time.

First Ladies Quilt

This is a very large quilt, and it was beautifully pieced.

There was lots of negative space for some pretty quilting.

The blocks were all quilted individually.

In order to keep some continuity between the blocks, I restricted the quilting to straight ...

Another Favorite Houston Exhibit from Humble Quilts

I came across this lovely indigo exhibit and it really was inspiring! Quilting in Japan has always been so completely perfect and over the top, which I appreciate, but I'm not necessarily inspired by it- thee was something different about these quilts. 
If you haven't heard of many Japanese quilters, let me introduce you to the
 indigo work of Shizuko Kurohah. 

This was one of my favorites. It was so unusual and unique.
She had to have designed it on paper ahead of time to make this amazing design work. I think you can click to zoom more ...

Quilt Shows and Quilt Alongs from Needle and Foot

Good morning all. I am enjoying a lovely, quiet morning here with coffee and some blog reading and I thought it a good time to catch up. It has been a while right?

Last weekend I spent a couple of days as a vendor at a fun show in the small town of Brownsville. I can’t say how much I enjoyed this little show. It was so relaxed and the people, quilters and wanderers both, were incredibly friendly. This guild has a membership of about 30 people with roughly half being very active. The town has a population of ...

Playing With Color (More Catching Up!) from The Quilting Hermit

I've made several Mod Mosaic quilts (back between 2010-2012), though I apparently only blogged about one of them as a WIP. Still, it's a super fun block to do with scraps. When my quilt guild put out a call for quilts to auction at the quilt show in February of 2017 I made two mini mosaic quilts. The theme for the show was the color red, so I did both with my red scraps and did one with white spacers and one with black. I backed both with a plain unbleached muslin, nothing special, and bound them in ...
