The Cabarrus Quilt Show this year was awesome! So many beautiful quilts, great vendors, and I loved my booth, I had such nice neighbors and was conveniently located near everything I needed - always a help when you're doing a show by yourself. I didn't have time to see everything, we were so busy (lol a good thing!) but here are a few photos of some of my favorite quilts. I was so blessed to win 4 ribbons at this show - 3 of them blue ribbons, I love getting rewarded for something I have a passion for, creating! I guess I was the most thrilled with my "Felted Garden" quilt, I put so much time into this one, between the design, sewing and lots of wet-felting, there are so many different techniques on this quilt. I hope to be able to teach some of these at some quilt shows in 2012. And my friend Rebecca Verrier-Watt won a ribbon for Best Longarm Quilting in the show, go Rebecca! No surprise there, she did a phenomenal job! All in all, a very good show.
I was thrilled to be included as a vendor at the Asheville Quilt Show this year! I've been wanting to do this show for years, and when they changed the venue to the new building at the WNC Ag Center, it opened up the show to have more room to exhibit quilts and also, more vendors. We were busy all weekend, but I had a chance Sunday morning to zip around and see just a few of the beautiful quilts, here are a few that caught my eye, along with a quick pic of my booth.
