Driving back and forth all week to the location were the conference was held, I had seen the signs announcing the quilt show.
It was an extremely pleasant surprise and diversion after sitting all week and industriously taking notes at the conference.
It took place at the United Methodist Church of North Chili, NY. The entire sanctuary was filled with quilts. They were draped over every alternate pew so you could walk by them without disturbing them. The church hallway had quilts hanging on the walls. In a huge room - I don't know what the church used this room for - perhaps a gymnasium or a large conference room - there were large bed size quilts. This room also had a few quilt related vendors around the perimeter.
|sorry about the legend taking a bite out - this quilt was so beautiful - the stitching so elegant|
|the quilts had a legend with the name and how the quilter came to make it|
|Very large quilt - very wintery scene - in strips|
|close-up wintery scene - lots of shiny snowflakes heat set|
|child's quilt - all animals wore different shoes|
A totally lovely surprise - tea was served in their tea room.
