So, there is this great festival getting ready to kick off and they have a quilt show along with it. There is a little tradition that they have with letting some of the Barksdale Command Spouses come down and judge the quilts. It just so happens I had the opportunity to go. I know right? I was not scheduled to go, but there was a last minute change of plans and I was available to step in and go. What fun. And oh what beautiful quilts we saw. Some were just amazing, some were inspiring, others were not my cup of tea, others I wish I could tweak a color or two and then a couple I wish I could have snatched off the rack and brought home. Most of them made me think of all my quilter friends. I felt very out of my league! And I think they should not have limited us to picking just one, I could have VERY EASILY given out a first, second and third...even a fourth and fifth. LOL
These were just two of the many beautiful quilts we saw. I should have taken way more pictures, but I think they thought I was a little weird for taking the pictures to begin with! HA But I did say I wanted to blog it :)
There were lots of seasonal quilts and while some were very nice, most just did not catch my eye. There were Halloween ones, several Autumn, couple Spring, many, many Christmas ones but like I said even though they were neat, they just did not catch my eye. Until...
The one that really caught my eye was absolutely gorgeous! It was reds and creams and it just looked amazing, really rich; just a great piece! I would have loved to bring it on home with me! They do have a raffle going on for a few of the quilts I think when MiB and I go back we will buy a ticket or two, or three :) I could use another nice blanket!
So that was my day, unexpected quilt judge! I held my own in the "what appeals to me" but I honestly think they were all winners in their own right! This is just such an awesome talent and skill to have and anyone who participates is a winner in my book~
