Quilt Shows Galore!

It's been a sparse summer for quilt shows. But Fall is almost here and there are many quilt shows in the area. I'm going to try to hit 2 shows this weekend, in Lansing and in Marshall. The quilters at both shows are so talented. Fortunately, both shows run all weekend. For those in the area, here are some of the upcoming shows this month.

Been there before, prefer the Marshall show (same weekend)

  1. I do love to look at quilts, but I've avoided the quilting bug. My granny used to quilt with all the stitching by hand. They were beautiful pieces.
