Quilt Show.....

The three of us started out at 9am to drive 90 miles west to a quilt show put on by the local quilt guild. First though we had to stop at Cracker Barrel for Mom's French Toast for them and coffee and toast for me. The show was really nice although there was an lot of stuff packed into that room. There were lots of vendors, Liberty Homestead, Son Shine Seed Co., Everything you Needle to Hand Quilt, and more....
I was tempted to purchase some more hand embroidery patterns, but wisely decided I have enough projects going for now. I did get a couple of pieces of fabric. One a 30's print in orange and green and a white with scattered small black dots I plan to use as the background of a stitchery...

Here are some quilts I found particulary interesting...

Names and information under each quilt.....
