Fall Quilt Show in Western PA

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.

My Favorites at the NQA Quilt Show, part 3

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.

My Favorites at the NQA Quilt Show

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…
