And…part 3

I went to the show with Patty and Diane, two friends from California. How surprised was I when they picked me up in this.

Just kidding, but doesn’t everyone need a car cover like these? They are really made out of fabric.

Now for some more quilts. These next few quilts are from a local group of quilters who did a “round robin” of row quilts.

(sorry to the quilter who owns this one….tree was in the way)

The color on this one came out terrible. Think Amish colors! Don’t know why my camera did that. Oh well, what cha gonna do?

083

More eye candy.

084

At first when I saw this one, I thought it was applique, but when I got closer, it was all machine embroidery. Beautiful.

Not sure if I showed this next one. Sorry if it’s a dup. I’m getting confused with all these pictures.

093

This one was all needle turn applique and hand quilted. My colors!

When Jean Wells is planning where these quilts will hang, she often groups them in like colors or themes. It’s very effective.

The blue and yellow section.

What a hoot that car is! Looks like there was more than one, too! I love the Harvest Time quilt...so "me"! Your pics are great, Anne - gettin' up and out early seems to be the key...now if you could just drive away in the car....
Cheers!

I love those covered cars, but if it was here in NH, the front would be covered in bugs ... yuck. Someday I'd love to go to Sisters - it looks so fantastic!

Darlene said...

That's some car! :-) All the quilts were fabulous - thank you so much for taking us along with your. I haven't been to Sisters in 7 years - would love to visit the show again sometime.

Doesn't every car need a quilted car cover? Someone has too much time on their hands. LOVE the needleturn applique quilt. Stunning.

Lori said...

Don't you love the red and white quilts on the yellow building? One of the gals this week was making a red and yellow and I noticed the quilts right away.

Love the row robins too. What a great group!

Terry said...

Pat said...

Love the car cover. Quilts are lovely too.

Debbie said...

Thanks for posting the pics from the show. I have really enjoyed seeing the quilts. I especially love the "Timber Town" in the round robin group quilts. Maybe someday, I will make it to that show. I live in VA so it would be quite the trip for me. Looking forward to more pics tomorrow!

So many stunning, spectacular quilts! And maybe if I show the car cover to my family they won't think I'm crazy...I haven't gone that far yet!

Crispy said...

I love the row robin quilts. They did such a wonderful job on these...very imaginative. I showed the car cover & told dh I'd make one for his car, it's a little Metro. He actually said ok LOL.
