Another show- lots of pictures!

So, this past weekend was the other local quilt show, in Titusville.  I couldn't believe how busy it was only a few minutes after they opened!  Apparently, people were lined up when they opened. Wow.
So, I have a few pictures to share:

 This embroidered quilt was done way hand.

 Tiny pieces of fabric make up these drunkard's path blocks.  See, another reason to save every little scrap!

 These roses were drawn by hand, and then pieced.  Wow!

 Umbrella ladies done by embroidery machine, just beautiful. 
Hopefully, my next post will have pictures of some of what I have been trying to work on.  School is getting to me, and I have been back this semester only a month and a half.  Oh well, it will be worth it.  Went and bought more fabric the other day (great sale), and my mom asked how much fabric am I going be buying once I am done with school, and working, hopefully making more money than I am now?  I had to laugh.  I told her probably a lot more!  LOL
Hope everyone has a great day!
Happy quilting,

Quilt show 2013

Just got back from the quilt show at the Orlando, Fl fairgrounds.  It is going on today and tomorrow.  So, be forewarned, there are lots of pictures, with some comments.  I did get to try out a Handiquilter and a Gammill.  So, there will be a new machine in my future, just not yet.  Have to finish school and get moved first.  Maybe in a couple of years. 
Onto pictures.

Beautiful embroidery

One of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts.

Gorgeous embroidery and quilting.

This quilt had a story- it was made for a mother whose son had died- it was made from his shirts.

I feel like this most days. LOL

Phenomenal work- too big to get a full picture!
This was the quiltmaker's first try at paper piecing.  Wow!

My motto- every scrap counts!

I had a great time, and can't wait for the next quilt show in our area- Titusville Fla, the Brevard Community College campus the weekend of the 16th.  Weekend after next.  I usually see people from the guild, and just have a great time. 
Hope everyone has a great day
Happy Quilting,
