Gil and I left this morning around 10. As we drove east, up into the hills, we saw dark ominous clouds. The closer we got to Placerville, the darker they got. In fact there was moisture on the ground. Yep. It had been raining. No big deal, you say. Well not if you are not headed to an OUTDOOR quilt show!
We pulled into Georgetown and went to the park it is normally in. We didn't see signs. We didn't see quilts. Oh oh. It was either cancelled or they moved it somewhere. Now Georgetown is quite small, so we drove back down the main street. Sure enough there was a quilt hanging out on a corner of the main intersection with an arrow pointing on down the road. We found it!
The building it was in was a nice building but very small for a quilt show. The ladies, and I'm sure several husbands, did a great job in getting them up, giving the vendors room and finding space for the luncheon area.
I, as usual, have pictures to share. I just have to tell you they are all close up pictures, as the aisles between the quilts was just wide enough for one person to walk through. So some are taken at an angle. A few are taken just up close, as I was unable to get far enough back to take in the whole quilt. One, that I didn't take, was a whole cloth white quilt. Beautiful. It was quilted on a machine with some spectacular quilting. I didn't take a picture because it was a white quilt with white thread. Plus there was a bunch of admirers standing in front of it.
Here are the pictures:
|There were several quilts using this same pattern. Each one a little different. This quilt was taken because I could step back and get it all in the picture. They were all beautiful.|
|I had to include this one, for sure. After all I am Beehive Quilts. Too cute.|
|Again several of this pattern was done. I loved how each looked so different. Each one had adorable embellishments.|
|Again the Quilt Diva. One of several. Real earrings. Love it.|
|I love Halloween. I love witches. This is a cool wall hanging. Very nice.|
|Each barn is just a wall hanging. Each is a work of art though. The quilting in each one really gives you a feeling of land and wind, boards and grass. Good job, ladies.|
|This is just a portion of a larger quilt. I took this picture to show off the blue flowers. They are squares of fabric that have been folded and sewn onto the quilt in 3-D fashion. Very beautiful. Something I may do someday. Really nice effect.|
|Love the inner border on this quilt. Too cute all over, for that manner. The flowers are 3-D, also. Good job.|
|This is large quilt, but you are only seeing a very small section of it. It is all purples and pinks for all you purple fanatics. Gorgeous quilt.|
|This table runner was on a table as you entered into the quilt room. Very cute. Love scarecrows.|
|Owls! If you could all see my personal Pinterest posts, you would see owls, owls and more owls. I would love to own this quilt. Very adorable.|
Georgetown itself is a charming town to go to. It has a couple of shops that we went into, which were fun. Good luck on your celebration for founder's day tomorrow. I hope the weather is sunny and dry for you.
Keep on Quilting
