Mid-Atlantic quilt show

Three things to be happy about:
(1) new ideas
(2) keeping your options open
(3) quilt shows

Hi everybody!  Last Saturday I went to the Mid-Atlantic quilt festival in Hampton, Virginia and I'm just now getting around to uploading the pictures.

But first I wanted to show you winter's last hurrah, as seen from my front porch.  We had a little snow last night, but at the time I took this picture it was already melting, yaaay!

In the convention center atrium Renea and I ran into the mayor of Hampton, Mayor George Wallace.  He was standing behind a desk, we had a question and we all just started talking.  Then he points to a picture on the desk and says "Oh by the way, that's me."  

So funny!  He's a very nice person, chatting away like an old friend.

And now, the quilts - this year they added a modern quilt category.  Some may be slightly out of focus, I was having camera issues.

who wouldn't love this art quilt, the pillows look ready to fall off the shelf!

So many art quilts, portrait quilts, modern quilts!  I still have more to share that I'll post tomorrow.
Sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. Those are some amazing quilts, but that pillow one would be hard to tear oneself away from...

  2. Good job on the post, did you get the picture from Tammy of all of us at the show?

  3. That pillow quilt is amazing! Looks so real...I could almost squish one of the pillows!!

  4. Beautiful quilts. I've seen the pillow one at other shows - some of these travel around for a few years.
