Village Quilters Quilt Show

These guild members are so very talented. The biennial quilt show put on by the Village Quilters guild appeared to be a huge success. I drove over to visit the vendors, the boutique, and see some inspiring quilts. I was not disappointed. All the quilts on display were made by members. Beautiful work.

Check out this beautiful Bargello made by my friend. And of course, I liked this version of Edinburgh Square, below. She called it Let the Sun Shine on Edinburgh Square. Love her sun ray quilting.

There were many, many more gorgeous quilts, I'm just not sure the protocols for posting someone else's quilts on my blog. Lots were for sale, along with other hand crafted items in the boutique. I came home with this beauty.

I found some fall quilted placemats in the boutique and carried them around intending to purchase them, but when I saw this, oh my, it was love at first sight. It was made as a bed runner but I knew it would work great on our dining room table.

Once home, I tried to get a few blocks made on my Irish Chain. Sixty-two down, 37 more to make.

The best part of the day was later this evening. After supper, I began searching the web for quilt studio designs. We are getting closer to starting our addition, which will be a wood shop and quilt studio. I think I've finally settled on the layout.

It isn't a huge room (like Alex Anderson's on Youtube) so I want to make the best use of the space. I hope to build a piece or two myself. I have plans to make a pressing/cutting station on roller wheels that can lock down. I plan to make the pressing top removable and will hang it off the back on hooks when it isn't in use. Once my big machine is in place, I should be able to use the space underneath for storage and I hope to put in some wall storage also - shelves/cabinets/or some of both. I'm getting excited about it.
