It was a humid, rainy weekend. Perfect for going to a quilt show or two. Mom and I went to the quilt show in Dexter on Saturday and enjoyed our lunch in a nice smoke-free bar (thanks to the new Michigan law banning smoking in restaurants that went into effect on Saturday). Although I love going to quilt shows, and appreciate the amount of work that goes into putting one together, I have to say that quilt shows in churches are not my favorite venue. I prefer to see the full size quilts, and be able to look at them up close rather than having them draped over church pews that you have to view from the aisle in rather dim lighting. This show was more about older quilts, and had a collection of older Sunbonnet Sue quilts. There was also an exhibition of someone who must have been a treasured member of the guild or church who had several beautiful quilts that were all hand made.
This was one of them, apparently the quilter’s first quilt!!
This was another one, in the most beautiful shade of soft yellow
This one was cute, an entire quilt made about weight loss
I love the typical Amish colors in this one
I did make it to the Midland quilt show, so I’ll get those pictures in the next blog.
Hope everyone had a good weekend.
