The Beaver Valley Piecemakers are having their 18th Annual Quilt Show, October 11th-13th. It will be at the Holy Family Parish in New Brighton, PA.
I have not personally been to this quilt show, but it would be a great time of the year to take a road trip. Perhaps next year.
The theme this year is Two Color Quilts. There will be food, vendors, a boutique and of course beautiful quilts to look at.
So, if you’re in the neighborhood or would like to take in the fall colors during a road trip, put this quilt show on your calendar. Here is a link to their website Beaver Valley Piecemakers.
Here are the final quilts from the NQA Quilt Show that simply, caught-my-eye. I think you’ll see why.
This final quilt was made by Alisa Seamster…love the name! How ironic.
This is an impressive quilt.
I took a picture of the label explaining how the quilt was made.
Yes, 33,320 half-inch squares…wow! And if that isn’t impressive enough, she “tied” it. Alisa was standing there by her quilt so she showed me the back and all the ties!
I hope you enjoyed the NQA Quilt Show and Tell. As I said…it always inspires me to improve my quilting and try new innovations. Cross-stitch quilting will not be one of them though. I’ll leave that to Alisa Seamster.
Today’s quilt show-and-tell will be my Flora & Fauna category.
I love big beautiful floral pictorial quilts!
I love trees. I’m not a tree hugger, I just appreciate their simple beauty.
Stay tuned for Part 3 of the NQA Quilt Show and the, Caught My Eye, category.
As I said in yesterday’s post. I also took pictures of quilts that I especially liked. Sorting through them I saw that each one fell into 1 of 3 categories: Traditional, Flora & Fauna and just simply Caught My Eye.
Here is the Traditional category…
I really liked the border on the quilt above. Here is a close-up…
And the last quilt in the my Traditional category must be seen close-up.
