Quilters Unlimited Show and a Challenge

Quilters Unlimited Guild had their annual show this year.  It was a little bit of a transition from what we have been used to...different building...different show set-up...new vendors...missing long-tme vendors, long lines.  But the quilts were beautiful and we enjoyed the camaraderie.  I always enjoy seeing my quilting friends and it was especially nice to see Linda (eatsleepquilt.blogspot.com).  My friend Wendy and I spent the morning and a better part of the afternoon at the show and we were both exhausted by the time we left.  I did have a chance to take a few photos of some of my favorites from the show to share...

I love all quilts with half-square triangles.  The picture does not do it justice.




There were many New York Beauty and Cinco de Mayo quilts. 

This one was a real beauty.


Finally, I thought I would stretch a little and participate in a challenge by a well-known quilt lecturer and designer. Here is a picture of the first block...I will share more after the June 30th deadline for the challenge.



More to follow soon...

Hi Penny, it was really good seeing you again. I like the NY Beauty quilt you posted, it looks like stained glass. I don't think I saw that one, I didn't see all the displays before I left.

I'm looking forward to seeing all your challenge blocks!
