CORSICANA QUILT SHOW

Yesterday I went with a friend to Corsicana, Texas to the 33rd (Wow) annual Piecemakers' Guild Quilt Show.  They do things differently in Corsicana and I really like their system.  First of all, their quilt show lasts all month - and it is free!  Yes, it is on display for the whole month  - or I guess for 4 weeks during October.

Secondly, during the quilt show, they hand quilt next year's raffle quilt!  Yes!  Their raffle quilts are hand quilted!!!  I do love that.  These ladies are dedicated, are they not?

Here are some of my favorite quilts from the show.



Blue Baskets by Becky Stephenson

Grace and Glory, by Judy Green


Garden Party by Judy Green
I'm sorry I didn't get all the titles and makers of the quilts.  There were many other beauties there.  The pictures aren't the best as they were taken with my cell phone.

Thanks for visiting!

Wow, it was hard to choose which one I liked the best, they are all real beauties, and the colors and design on the first one are truly spectacular. Thanks for sharing - I love visiting quilt shows!

Indeed those are all beautiful quilts! Just as interesting is the fact that they are all different from quilts I've seen at all the other shows I've visited. It's my first time to see any of these patterns at a show. That first one is really special! ---"Love"

They are all beautiful. I kept being drawn back to Blue Baskets. Traditional designs, well executed, with a bit of a twist are usually my favs!
