My Field Trip to the Quilt Show

This past Saturday there was a local quilt show that was only about a half hour away from me. My wonderful Hubby said he could keep the kiddos so I was off to have some fun looking and shopping! Here are a few of the gorgeous quilts  I saw. I would estimate that the show had a total of around 75 quilts...but I am just guessing.

Again that was just a little show of some of my favorites. One of the many things I love about quilting is that you can really do projects that reflect your own style....primitive, traditional, modern, lots of color, tone on tone, ect, It is always fun to see complete projects from other people, also inspiring! It kinda makes me want to lock myself in my sewing (which is in my bedroom, not to glamous I know) and not come out for days! Since that doesn't seem very realistic in this season of my life, I will have to work on an alternative plan.

REMINDER!!! Today at NOON (Indiana time), the layer cake giveaway from THE FAT QUARTER SHOP will end.....hurry and enter now!!

Just a curious question for you all....How many of you quilt or sew that FOLLOW The Gaertegang?

I'm like you, someday when the kids are gone I am going to be one of those cool, artsy grandmas that makes really neat quilts. But right now it is math and laundry and running after kids! I have this great quilt project that is going to be incredible if I ever find the time to get it done.

I loved quilting and quilted right up until put on bed rest while awaiting the arrival of child #1. That one is now hanging on our living room wall and I love it. But, since then, zilch...someday I will again. In the mean time, I'll enjoy the reasons for my forced break :)
