Heritage Park Quilt Show

This weekend was the Heritage Park quilt show. This is one of my favorite shows, it is a quilt display open to all skill levels, I love seeing all the quilts, this year they was 700 quilts. I love that is not judge, as if it was I would not have the nerve to enter mine and its so nice to see them on display. Normally the quilts blanket the park, hanging from clothes lines, the hotels balcony, as well as tent and indoor displays, unfortunately this year it has been raining lots, so all the out door quilts had to be placed indoors. They do have alternate indoor display area, but it had been so wet that even the quilts in the tents had to be moved. This is the first time I have see that. It was still a wonderful day.
Here is my bargello quilt, I had been hoping to get my first full size photo of it, I guess I will have to be more creative with that.
Can you believe that this is a BOM from one of the local stores, I think this is just stunning.
I love the purple and greens in the circle quilts, I also am inspired about the use of a border fabric in the hanging blue quilt.
These quilts are from the kid section, I love the floral fabric in the nine patch and the frog quilt i so much fun.
This chicken quilts made me smile.
I like the feel of this quilts. I also put in my Australia log cabin. I need to learn how to do a photo montage to show you more photos, as I took lots.

On my last post I showed a kitty quilt that a few of you had asked about the pattern, the girl who made it drafted the pattern, so sorry I can not help you with where to get it.

Have a great week.
