Quilt Show Today!

 
Definitely one of my favorite signs! Every other year, the Penn Oaks Quilt Guild puts on a quilt show. It's a small guild, less than 50 members, I believe. Every single member contributes, working to make the show a success.
 
 
Entry to the competition is open to all quilters and is juried and NQA judged. There are also non judged categories of quilts, displays of challenge quilts and special exhibits. Oh, and did I mention venders?
I love this vibrant quilt by Ellen McMillen. I don't have enough yellow in my stash to make a quarter of this quilt.
 
 
Maryann Lewis made this fun, swirley tulip quilt.
 
 
The members of this talented guild make quilts in many styles from tradional to art quilts. This quilt was made by Kelly Meanix. That's a lot of triangles! I bet she had to drink at least one glass of red wine to prevent that dreaded Lint Lung.
 
 
I think this quilt by Betsy Moses fits the modern astetic. I like everything about it, the design, the colors and the quilting.
 
 
 
Another really fun quilt by Betsy Moses. I waited by the phone all day yesterday. Betsy actually made this quilt in a small size for the auction of miniature quilts. I put lots of my tickets in that bag. I guess they didn't want to disturb people with a phone call on Sunday and will be letting me know about my winning ticket today. I'm waiting y'all!
 
 
My friend Kelly Meanix of Pinkadot Quilts won Best of Show! Her piecing and appliqué is exquiset. A well deserved ribbon, congratulations!
 
 
These adorable cookies were pretty and good, and lasted long enough to snap a quick picture. You know, I think there should have been two Best of Show awards. Whoever made the carrot cake for the Dresden Plate cafe has my admiration. It was delishious! Note…no photo. You know why!

    Terry, I wish i could take credit for that vibrant quilt but it was made by Robin McMillen, my daughter-in-law. It was good to see you at our show.
