Jefferson Quilt Show

I hope your weekend was filled with fun quilting adventures.  Mine certainly was!  On Saturday morning, we dropped the eldest off for a Boy Scout event, and then made a three hour drive with the younger four kiddos to Jefferson, Texas, for the “Quilts on the Bayou” show.

It was absolutely delightful! The show was divided into multiple rooms and hallways, which made viewing the quilts very enjoyable.  And the vendors and show volunteers were super-kind to the kids, really making them feel welcome.  I bought a cd of the show in hopes of sharing some of my favorite quilts with you, but the cd photographs don’t have the quilters’ names correlated to the quilts.  Double drat!  Had I know that at the time, I would have written them down so I could give proper credit.

I can, however, show you one quilt that was displayed there. . . .







So very exciting to see my own quilt on display at a quilt show.  I was over-the-moon!  Had it not been for this contest, I may have never discovered this quilt show.  I’m so glad we did.  We’re already making plans to head back next year, and hopefully spend a bit of time exploring the cute town as well.  (The general store across the street advertised a soda fountain and 5 cent coffee.  Our 9-year old daughter offered to buy us some, then asked if she could borrow a dime.  LOL!)

Amongst all the gorgeous quilts and friendly vendors, I found some AWESOME fabric.  I’m saving it to show in an upcoming post. One of my new Yoko Saito Study Group posts, to be exact!  Be sure to check back at the end of the week for the first post in this series.

Happy Stitching!

      Thank you! I can’t wait either. . . .Right now it’s in four huge sections all over the studio, but I don’t have a place big enough for all of them that’s safe from terrorizing toddler feet 🙂
