Quilt Show Visit This Past Weekend!!!

I feel out of the loop after having a Sinus Infection-Cold that knocked my socks off!  This started in the evening on Saturday while I was teaching at the retreat - which by the way was a lot of fun!  I did not get home until almost 11 PM!

Here's the pretty building I was at:


Anyway, I still have a mild headache behind my eyes from this sinus yuckiness and I'm slightly stuffed up.  All this crud didn't stop me from going to a quilt show this past Sunday!  My quilt guild, The Pride Of The Prairie Quilters had their Bi-Annual quilt show this past Saturday and Sunday and it was excellent as usual!

I'll be doing a few slide shows for you from the quilts that I took pictures of.  First up today is the Dear Jane quilt that was on display. This was pieced by Sue Schwegler and quilted by Julie Karlak. This beauty received a well deserved 2nd place ribbon also!

And of course since I am so infatuated with making my own Dear Jane - I had to really study each of the blocks and the quilting!  I took several close up shots of the quilt - that way in the future when it's finished, I can make a few suggestions to "whomever" gets to quilt it!

I hope you enjoy the pictures.  Here are a few and down at the bottom of this post is a slideshow presentation for you!





Here's the Slideshow:

I'm off to take some hand stitching outside on my deck and enjoy the warmth and sunshine!  Hopefully the fresh air will help perk me up a bit!
