Tons of Inspiration!

Today will be a photo-filled day of photos from my adventure with Mom yesterday.  We were off to a quilt show with a wonderful bed-turning!

First off....this was what we saw on our drive to the quilt show and back:

Driving through rural southern Minnesota on an overcast and snowy day leaves for a hard time deciphering the sky from the ground in the distance.



I want to make one like this for my sewing room!


Love the ruffles!  Someday I may
make the venture to do this....


Such luscious colors!!

Great edges!  Love that it isn't all just straight :o)
Curved? Who would've thought??

Oh how I love Figgy Pudding!

Beautiful Stack-N-Whack 4-Patch

 

Antique Grandmother's Flower Garden - Made in the 1930's

Antique Double Wedding Ring - Don't remember when it was made


Antique Signature Quilt - Made in 1950


Antique Quilt, Victorian Ladies similar to Sunbonnet Sue 
- Don't remember when it was made


Antique Applique Rose Bud Wreath Quilt -
Again, don't remember when

Mom - if you remember when some of the quilts shown in the bed-turning were made, let me know and I'll add the dates in on here.  Thanks!  Love ya!

So many absolutely beautiful quilts at the show, and so much inspiration floating around, I was just ready to get home and work on my flower garden!!

We're off to another show and lecture tomorrow for our Tuesday Night Sewing Date!  More pictures to come after that show!!

Always,
Katy

hank you for all the beautiful pictures. I adore the granny floer grde, it's my favourite because the handmade hexagongs are the ones I can do better. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous experience! Bye, Clara.
