Cocheco Show

Yesterday was a glorious Fall day to celebrate with my friend, Shirley, below, as we went to see the Cocheco Quilt Show in Rochester, New Hampshire.

You may click on any picture to enlarge it.


Outside the entrance was the New England Quilt Museum's "Car Quilt."


It was hard to know what to record in pictures, there were so many beautiful quilts!


The Cocheco guild has a high percentage of Civil War era reproduction quilters, so for me, it's the best show ever!


There were small and large quilts that so appealed to me.


There was even a row quilt that I liked, and I usually don't care much for that design, but look at this one!


And this one with the applique was a winner, too!




This batik quilt caught my eye, though there were many more that were also lovely.


Like this one.


This next quilt had been assembled from antique blocks.


There was so much precision piecing.


I reveled in the beauty of each one.


This Magi art quilt was small but very impressive.


My favorite, I think, was this diamond 4-patch, all in Civil War selections.


This disappearing 4-patch was lovely.


Everywhere there was another pretty quilt.


There was a finished Farmer's Wife, too.


Of course, we had some fun with the vendors shopping for me.


Shirley had a field day at the Penny Sale, too.


As we were leaving, there was one last small quilt that I loved.



Thank you to all the hard working guild members who not only sewed all of these quilts, but also put on a great show!!!
Whenever I leave after viewing a quilt show, I am always both inspired and intimidated. The hard part is to never compare your own work to that of others, but rather to only compare it to your own previous work.

Happy Quilting!

Beautiful quilts, Vic, some more appealing than others (to me, at least). I love the antique churn dash and that the quilter seemed to use what she had. I noticed at least a few blocks with more than two fabrics. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, thank you so much for sharing these! This has always been one of my favorite shows and I haven't been able to make it over for quite a few years. Love them all. Nice to see a close up of Gladi Porshe's sweet little quilt. She does such lovely work.

I think I would love this show, because I certainly enjoyed your photos! That last little quilt is especially sweet. : )
