    My wife and I went to the Hope Quilter's Guild bi-annual Quilt Show today in historic Old Washington, Arkansas (about 1.5 hours from where we live). It was WELL worth the drive! The show was held at the Old Washington historic park, which has buildings dating back to the early 1800s. There were ladies walking around in period dress, etc., so it was really a nice show. They also had vendors on site, so I bought a lot of really nice fabrics and a book. And oh yeah, I took a ton of pictures...enjoy!

    That makes two of us. Wow. Just when I think I see my "favorite" out of the group, up scrolls another one. There are some phenomenal quilts there!

    Thank you Eddie, for posting all these wonderful pics - so many gems amongst them, though I didn't notice any rosettes. I would have given all of them a rosette. No wonder you thought the drive was worthwhile. I was even enjoying the snippets of quilts peeking out from underneath some of the others, or laying on sheets on the floor between the stands.

    Your pics are beautiful, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw # 142, One year ago I won a blue ribbon at the local Mohave Co fair here in Arizona for the same tree of life quilt, only I bound it in white, Took me about a year to quilt it , I have had it for 10 years in stages of putting together, I had a problem tho with the little blue dots to follow the quilting lines , They would not come out in washing , otherwise I was considered for the best of show, I only joined your forum today, this is my :lol: :lol: first post

    Eddie, Thanks for the posting of these pictures. My grandparents and my dad lived in Hope, Arkansas until the mid to late 1930s at which time they moved to Benton. My grandfather always enjoyed knowning about the latest technology around him, but when he passed away in the 70s none of us could have known that his granddaughter would be enjoying a quilt show from that area on a computer screen in her home. He and my grandmother would have loved these quilts.

    OMG!! What beautiful quilts. Thanks, Eddie, for posting the pictures--I felt like I was at the show. I look at these quilts and don't know whether to be inspired or intimidated; I'll never reach that skill level. I know--practice, practice. Thanks again (she says as she cringes at the WIPS and UFOs around her)

    I love going to quilt shows. There is nothing like actually being there, but this was close. Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures. I was drooling the whole time. :shock: :shock:

    You're welcome everyone, I'm glad you liked them. I particularly liked the following one. Does anyone know what this pattern is called?

    Sorry, don't know the name.

    Thanks for posting all those gorgeous pictures. I always lean toward the scrappies and there were quite a few you posted.

    What I would give to be able to drive an hour and half to go to a quilt show. So glad you enjoyed the show and shared with us here.

    Fat Quarter Friendly from Fons and Porter's For the love of Quilting Magazine has a similar quilt called Scrappy Star on page 101. Same stars, but not set on point like your picture. This is one I really like, too!

    Also, NorBanaquilts has a picture of this quilt as her avatar... maybe she knows!

    Thanks for the quilt show! Your photos are most appreciated!

    I believe that quilt block is the 'hunter's star'. See what you think.
