Grand Haven Quilt Show

Can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted.  No excuse.  Just feeling kinda lazy this summer with this heat and all.  I did manage to go to a few quilt shows in the past month.  The weather finally broke a week ago, and I pulled one of those “I’m taking tomorrow off” vacation days.  DH and I took a drive on a beautiful sunshine day to Grand Haven, which is on the coast of Lake Michigan.  They were having their Coast Guard Festival, but unfortunately, the Coast Guard ships were not due in til Monday.  It would have been fun to see all the ships.  The Grand Haven Lighthouse Guild held their show called “Sand, Surf and Sunsets”.  This is the first sight I saw when I entered the lobby of the building.

She’s kind of cute…

  1. Thanks for the great photos! They are beautiful!

  2. I like all the photos, but especially the first. She is cute! And the last quilt has gorgeous colors.

    I'm hoping my back is better to make the trip to Allegan for the fiber festival in two weeks. A girl can hope, can't she?

  3. Great pictures! I like that log cabin layout, too. It's one of my favorite blocks. I got my notice for the Marshall show in the mail the other day.

  4. Nice pictures. Glad you took a day off and had some fun. Quilt shows are great inspiration.
