Craft and Quilt show

Today my lovely host Angie has taken myself and her Mum to a craft show at a local church.....you wouldn't believe the weather today,  it is heaving down rain and there is thunder and lightning ...not cold but you get very wet going outside!! We had a look at the craft fair and made a few purchases, the went next door to have a look at the quilt show
I had a chuckle over this label...if you make one star a day you will have a quilt in a year!!! Yep good in theory....most of the EPP quilts on display had been WIPS for years.....kind of like mine!! Lol!!

Beautiful heirloom quilt with lace and doilies

quilts arranged over the pews in the Church

Might give someone some ideas for the shirt challenge.....maybe....just saying!!!

Loved this quilt....is a quilt as you go by Leesa Chandler if I remember correctly! Lol! Love the poppy fabric. There is also some Kiwi fabric in there which is very nice too.

Looking from the back to the front

Lovely colours here

Lone Star quilt started while the maker was in the US doing a course.
Was a lovely show to look at and good to see the explanations of how the quilts were made. Off home now for lunch.
Have a great day.
