Showtime At The Lakes

Yesterday morning I braved the heat and went to a quilt show. It was The Ladies Of the Lakes Guild and what was wonderful is that they do allow photographs for non commercial use. These are the ones that appealed to me.

I think that my attempts to capture the legends were unsuccessful due to very fine print on their cards.

I wanted a close up of a block from the above design, but wouldn't you know, it turned out to be a block that has two small darker points turned wrong-way!

I saw and hugged lots of friends while I was there, so I was far from lonely.

You may click on any picture to enlarge it.

So many quilts made me silently squeal inside a thought of, "Oh, I want to make that one!!!!"

Their featured quilter was Janet Vaughn and I loved all of her quilts! Here are some of them.

So many quilts, so little time!!

While at the show, I resisted buying anything and came right home to the cool AC. Then I was very bad and ordered scads from two online sources that had huge sales. Hee hee hee, I love being bad!

Linking up to Oh Scrap!Link.

Happy quilting!

Thanks for all the beautiful pics of beautiful quilts. A lot like I make, but I don't have CW fabrics, instead a lot of brights. We've had very hot weather in Ia. also, finally broke with storms, and lower humidity the last two days.

Oh, you make me laugh! : )
I love the quilts you loved.
I was going to commend you for being so strong and not buying at the show, but it sounds like you made up for it afterward. *LOL*

I can see the appeal of all of these quilts. And I can imagine you making most of them, Vic.

So, tell us -- me! -- which online sources had sales, and were they one day sales?

Thanks for sharing some of the show with us.

Thank you for the quilt show tour. I recognize the mixed Ohio Stars (a larger version of a Bonnie H. design.)
