Quilt Show.... (photoheavy)


Last weekend a friend and I went to a quilt show in a country town called Rosewood...  I understand they have about 45 members which made it very impressive what a great show they had on...

What a lovely view through the quilts and a wonderful surprise seeing these two there ….. 


Rows of lovely quilts.... 


Some I took close up of the quilting …. 


Mostly I just took pictures because they are lovely and you get a great view through a camera rather than a couple of feet away....


Lots of horse themed quilts as expected in the country....





I loved how she arranged her colours in this one....


also a lovely pretty display of tea things....


other crafts were also displayed.... I adored these punch needle galahs….. and that clever crochet it is rested on....


Baltimores...


 … and blocks....


I do fancy these Labyrinth quilts…. all different ….. I'd love to do one …. 


EPP little stars... for the mad people.... 


This one was amazing... how she got the colours to make those secondary shapes.... 




loved the colours and the work in this one 


striking ….

Hexagons.. for mad people... looked like a smartie box.... 


Bargello.... 


… and pixelated ...

a happy quilt.... 


3D pinwheels....



Optical illusions.... 


so effective and lots of little pieces carefully placed.... 



I loved this one - so much to see in it...



I have seen pictures of this one but not in real life.... so effective.... 


This night sky was so good....


all the fireworks stitched..... so clever.... 


can never go wrong with stars.... 


… or embroidery.... 


a cute Christmas quilt..... 


I did love these puddings....


…. a fractured Bargello... clever and different....


… another with lots in it....

cute dogs.... 


… with lovely footprint quilting....


Signs all over not to touch and ladies with gloves to help if needed....

I did like this sign where they used a real pair of glasses....



There were a lot more quilts....  jolly good show ladies.

I love going to quilt shows... especially with friends and meeting up with other friends!

Oh, and country women put on lovely teas too.  This show was $5 entrance which included a complimentary tea/coffee and eats (sandwiches AND slices on a plate)…. I might have had some more for 'lunch'..... it was a long day!

So you think the people who do EPP are mad huh!!! 🤪🤪🤪🤪 nothing wrong with us who do stars and hexies!! 😁😁 How nice to meet up with those lovely ladies. What an amazing collection of quilts Fiona, so many clever patterns. Love the horse one and I am not usually a horsey person. Such a great show for a small group. Thanks for sharing.

The quilt show certainly is impressive. I love the different versions of the labyrinth quilts. You can’t go anywhere without bumping into people you know. Just as well you were all with ones you were supposed to be with.

It was a great show - and you captured so many of the great quilts - and some odd looking visitors.
