Lorraine Stagness Quilt Show

Lorraine Stagness Quilt Show was yesterday and LM and I made an afternoon of it. This is a free quilt show put on every two years and it is a lovely way to spend the day. Other year have carpooled with some of the girls from guild but was out Friday night so thought I better play it safe and held out on my own as wasn't sure when we would be leaving. I did run into a few girls from guild and had afternoon tea with them.

Here are a few of the photo I took, I'm not sure why but blogger is not letting me put them in the order I want to, so will have to go with the order they are in.
This year the Dalemead Quilt Guild also had a display, which I think added a variety to the show. Above is one of their quilts. I love the way the scrappy blue quilt looks on the red barn.
This photo is just of the setting and some of Lorraine's quilts. As a country girl at heart I love any change I get to be out of the city and into the wide open spaces, I think I took as many photos of the country side as I did of the quilts.
These are three example of the mystery quilt form the retreat Lorraine host. I love how different all of these look, there were 7 on display, and I like how they were all hang together.

These two photos are more quilts by the guild, I liked the African fabric is the square quilt and the simplicity of it. The sunflowers just made me smile, so cheerful.
Below is another photo of the setting and a couple of nice quilts.
There is also a display put on by "the sister". These ladies make a lot of quilts and were only displaying what they had made in the last two years since the last show.
These two Asian inspired quilts were made for fabric for their sister who had passed away stash as memorial quilts for her children.
This quilt caught my eye as I enter their display, it is just my colours. This was a challenge quilt, fabric from a kit had to be used.
Finally this is the trunk show I first saw when I arrived, I guess it was also the last thing I saw when I was leaving. Hope you enjoyed my look at the show.
