Old Forge Quilt Show

It's been just over a week since I went with Carolyn,one of the members from our quilt guild, to Old Forge NY to see the Quilts Unlimited Quilt Show at the Old Forge Art Center. The round trip was just under 200 miles. The day was a little overcast and we had a bit of rain on the way up. I drove and we had a nice chat during the trip which took about two hours one way. The show was in a beautiful new building with plenty of parking and a painted statue of a moose in front.




I'm sharing pictures of many of the quilts at the show in this and my next posting so you'll have to come back again to see the rest of these wonderful quilts.

It's hard to tell from the picture but the largest dragonflies were appliqued free-floating so to speak (attached only at the insects bodies) on top on the background.

This quilt displayed the flora and fauna of the Adirondack Mountains.

Border detail and award for the above appliqued quilt.

Wow! All those tiny points.

Detail of the above quilt.

Awesome!

Again...all those little points!

A denim quilt

This was digitally designed and printed on fabric in four sections, then assembled and quilted.

View from the dock on perhaps a lake in the Adiraondacks.

I love farms and barns that sport a quilt motif.

Another quilt that a photo doesn't do justice to. This had many sparkly fabrics and shiney quilting threads.

I was never a flower child but this brings back memories of riding in the back seat of a VW once...no room for my knees!


Watch for my next post...I'll have the rest of the show.
