Found a few more

I know these are out of order, but I found a few more random pictures from the Quilt Show a few weeks ago. This is Cynthia England's newest quilt. She did a trunk show and workshop for our Guild last year, and came back as a vendor. She is a delight.

And her work is unbelievable. These pictures do not do her work justice, but it was awesome.
This was part of her booth, showing patterns available. It was like a little mini quilt show all by itself!
This is a Gwen Marston pattern I found in a calendar a few years ago. My friend Sheree and I did this for the Silent Auction.
I appliqued the top and Sheree did the quilting. It was so cute.


This is my friend Faye in front of her quilt. She enjoyed standing and watching people enjoy her quilt. She had never been to a quilt show before.
And finally, this is the picture of the quilt that inspired me to make "Upstate Beauty". Considering that the picture was about this big, no pattern, no nothing, I'm pretty satisfied.


Until next time,
Karen

Cynthia England's quilt is quite realistic. When I first saw the tiny view on my blog sidebar, I thought it was a scenic photograph. I didn't realize it was a quilt until I got to your blog.

Your quilt is wonderful!

The Cynthia England quilt is amazing, but for myself, I prefer traditional patterns like those of your friend Faye, and your Upstate Beauty. Would it be possible to see a close-up of that by the way?

How did I miss Cynthia England's booth? Hmm. That's a beautiful quilt.

I forgot to ask you who ended up with your auction quilt. And I never get tired of seeing your Upstate Beauty. It's amazing.

Cute picture of you and Faye!
