A Boy's Visit to the Sandy Historical Society Quilt Show

Rather than take my HUGE digital SRL camera with me along with both kids and all of their paraphenalia to our local quilt show, we brought my old point and shoot digital camera, which now belongs to a certain pre-schooler.

Other than the first image (I giggled when I saw this tshirt worn by another attendee, and was brave enough to ask if I could take a picture- I'll be using that quote somewhere FOR SURE!),

the photography was all his... photos taken of his favorite quilts and well, some other things...








I must comment about that last quilt- it was AMAZING! Completely made from *tiny* hexagons, and Every SINGLE corner was PERFECTLY aligned. The reproduction vintage fabrics used for the colors had tiny characters that she used in repetition, and on each medallion, they were perfectly arranged, radiating out from the center. My words don't do it justice, and I wish I had taken a few photos myself so that I could show you this work of art. I didn't even take the time to write down the quilter's info, but I did place my vote for her quilt as my favorite in the "People's Choice" category.

The heat kept me home. :{ Well, that and exhaustion from 2 full days of the grandbaby. I'm glad you were able to venture out with the cherubs. Were there any hooked rugs this year?

Merrie

Nope. No hookers this year... and no Snotty punchers either.

But there was a fabric booth with some too-tempting Civil War reproduction fat quarters, and that made me happy. :)

First, let me start by saying that I am so happy there were no hookers at the quilt show. What a nusiance that can be.

And Jack! WAY TO GO! You obviously share your Mama's talent for photography! I am SO proud of you!
Love you all... ;o)
