    I went to this quilt show last Saturday, below are a few of the nicest quilts there, that appealed to me. It was hard to believe, in this RV park, they have over 90 quilters in their club, and all the quilts shown were made by these gals.

    No, it's not a blury picture, see below

    Thanks so much for sharing the pics. What a talented bunch they are....that jacket is exquisite and the quilts are beautiful. Not sure I like the japanese one....but it certainly shows technical talent...a lot of work went into it and it's very clever. The hand quilting on the 40's one is amazing (maybe when I grow up!!!). Anyway thanks again.

    I really enjoyed looking at these! They are all really pretty. I hope I am wording this correctly becuase I don't mean it as an insult to anyone's talent, but I liked seeing them becuase they look do-able to me. Some of the quilts shows I have been to had quilts that were so beyond my skill level & comprehension of where to begin that I feel overwhelmed sometimes just looking! Thanks for posting these- those quilters did a great job!

    They are all very pretty but I like the very first quilt you show. Do you by chance know the name of it? Kind of reminds me of a Lovers Knot.

    Wow..they are impressive. I particularly like the 'blurry'Japanese lady one. Quite effective

    I don't know the precise name, but seems like it has "Garden Trellis" in it. Our summer group did one for our opportunity quilt and got the pattern from Keepsake Quilting. Pls. anyone correct me if I am wrong.
