Today, I am participating in Slow Sunday Stitching, by hand basting a piece of fabric over the quilt label in preparation of entering NQA's Annual Quilt Show.  This is per request of NQA for fair judging purposes.  The hanging sleeve is already attached.

Tomorrow I box up Rhett & Scarlett and ship to Columbus, Ohio via UPS.  Hopefully, by next Sunday, I shall have something more exciting for Slow Sunday Stitching.

Sauder Village Quilt Show 2014 Part 2

A few more photos of a few of the quilts that took my fancy at the 2014 Sauder Village Quilt Show in Archbold, Ohio.  The photos are in no particular order and there were many other pretty quilts.

This wall hanging looked like a painting.  Note the quilts on line.

This quilt had absolutely fine exquisite hand quilting and nary a ribbon.
I don't get it.

The featured instructor was Gyleen Fitzgerald who had
one of her Trash to Treasure Pineapple Quilts on display.

On the way home I found myself
stuck in traffic.  
It took 50 minutes to travel 5 miles.  
Three lanes of mostly semi-trucks.
Yes, the quilt show was worth it!

In two weeks I travel to Columbus, Ohio to attend the

I attended last year and it was wonderful!

Sauder Village Quilt Show 2014

This week I attended a very nice quilt show at Sauder Village in Archbold, Ohio.  Quilts galore!

I've taken a few photos of just a few that caught my eye.  There were many more wonderful quilts, but I get overwhelmed and sidetracked by being surrounded by all the eye candy and apologize for not being able to feature them all.

A pleasant surprise was live beautiful background music from a baby grand piano.
One of the pianists played the theme song from Downton Abbey.  Wonderful!

Baltimore Rhapsody by Teresa at Fabric Therapy received a Blue Ribbon!  Now that I have seen it in person, I was amazed at the tiny applique details.  Beautiful!  The quilt drew quite a crowd throughout the day.

Brilliant jewel tones in this Amish style quilt

Whimsical Chicken Quilt which was so very clever.

The clothes were hung on a line.

Knock me over with a feather.  Rhett & Scarlett received an

More photos of Sauder Quilt Show to follow within a few days.  
Again, I wish I could have photographed them all.
