What a nice surprise on this cold, rainy Saturday!
Awoke today and attended the Cameo Quilter's Quilt Show in Madison Heights, MI.
I miss the camaraderie of the quilt guild. I belonged to 3 local and 1 state guild in Maine. I've been back in Michigan for 10 years and still can't find a home here. Saw the Cameo Quilters show posted on a bulletin board. They're a bunch of nice ladies and I'm glad I went. It was a very relaxing, stress-free way to spend the day.
AND I didn't spend a dime in the vendor booths! Amazing, huh? Nothing sparked my fancy. But, again, the booths were manned by some very nice people.
Here are some highlights (in my opinion) of the show. I am particularly fond of scrap quilts. Surprise, eh?
I love how simple yet eye-catching this one is.
This looks like a great quilt to work on 15-minutes a day! Betcha I can go through both tubs of scraps!
In the jungle, the mighty hunter...
My full-quilt photo doesn't do this one justice. I'm going to make this one someday.
This one was draped over a chair. You can't really tell in this picture but the thread was neon.
For "Viewer's Choice", there were categories such as Best Hand Quilting, Best Appliqué, etc. Most everything I saw was machine-pieced/machine-quilted (no criticism - most of mine are too). This was one of the only appliquéd quilts I noticed. Lovely, eh?
I have this pattern! I've been working on it for years. This quilt has inspired me to start it up again.
Lovely little show with lovely people. Hope to see a visit a few more this year.
