And the last photo i took, this was only a small fraction of the quilts that were there and i didnt see all of them.

Like a lot of you i love the quilt made of diamonds with the man in, and it was spectacular to see.

 

lots of love

Frances, You did a stellar job of sharing all of those quilts with us.  I, too, was very impressed with the landscape quilt with the man viewing the scene. But there were so many to drool over.   Thanks for sharing.    Ginny

France's thanks for sharing. I think I like the dolphins and the mountain, lake, man landscape as those quilts look so hard to make.  They are on my bucket list though...to learn.

i am always amazed at the talent of quilters in showing their love, passion and perspective. This is when I want to sit down and create, practice so that one day I might feel close to that quality of work.  I still have so much to learn!

Wow, Frances. These quilts are gorgeous. Just when I think I found my favorite another favorite comes along. I would sure hate to be a judge in a show like this. I'd have at least 20 first places. LOL, thanks so much for sharing!

Frances, you are a fantastic tour guide! I have 3 favorites...the first day the one with the vines around the border, second day the one with all the flowers, and lastly the mariners compass with the houses around it. All of the quilts were awesome, but those 3 stayed with me. I'll be doing a 64 pt. mariners compass for a Christmas gift...the first I've ever done.

Hugs.

I have been to the Quilt Festival today and here are a few of my favourites thought we ought to spoil you all! The one above is called Toad in the Hole. It is a take on a popular recipe ( which is sausages in a yorkshire pudding batter mix)
