Wrightwood Quilt Show

It seems like everyone has been getting snow. I love all of the photos I've been seeing around blogland. We even had a dusting of it last night. My twins got out and played in it even though it was dark, knowing it might be gone by morning. Most of it was gone by midday, but it sure is cold here now.
I wanted to share some photos of the wonderful quilts I saw at the quilt show in Wrightwood, CA on Saturday.
A very pretty Winter quilt.This photo is a little dark, but this one was beautiful. The stitching and quilting was so detailed.

This one reminded me of Anne of Green Gables for some reason.
This is another one with lots of detail.I almost missed this one because it was up against the built-in bookshelf and it looked so real there.Those are real clothespins. This one was not meant for ever sleeping under, but isn't it beautiful?The guitar just seems to fit with this one. There were so many beautiful quilts it was hard to decide which to include, but my lack of photography skills kind of helps me with that :-)
Have a wonderful day!

Oh, I love quilts. I was hoping you would get these up. Makes me want to start a quilt. Alas I have other sewing, baking, cleaning and shopping to do.
Your boys were so cute with there missing teeth. My Lexi(she's 7) has about 4 missing and she sang that song for her Christmas recital.
Thanks for your sweet words on my blog, Marcia, but I'm not a decorator. I just like to play house with my "stuff"

I adore quilts, but I can't sew worth a lick and we're retired (read - limited income) so I have a closet filled with store bought quilts and one handmade.

I've never seen such amazing art brought to fruition this way! I would have wanted to buy something...okay, I would've wanted to buy everything. WOW!

Wonderful quilt show. thank you for sharing it with us.
We don't have any snow either. Seems to all be going North of us.

How could you sleep under any of them. They all look marvelous. I am jealous of people who know how to quilt. I think that might be one of my new years resolutions to learn how to quilt. However, I don't think mine would look that good after the first year. :)

hey Marcia the quilt show looked great and so much fun I bet. My grandma lives in Crestline and is part of a quilt club up there. I'll post some pics of the quilts she's made for my kids!

WOW! They are beautiful. I admire those who quilt but I tried it out once and it wasn't for me. I'll have to stick to just admiring them. :)

Christine said...

Hi Marcia! What fantastic quilts - I'm in awe at such skill! Quilting is something I've only recently attempted and with no formal teaching, I'm making slow progress!
I can see Anne of Green Gables too - I love those stories and the film with Megan Followes in it.
Have a happy week,

Hi Marcia,
Those quilts are beautiful art. I can't even imagine creating something like that. To think of the talent and time put into them boggles my mind!

Thanks for sharing all the photos!

Have a blessed Thursday!


Jane said...

Those quilts are works of art!! The detail is amazing! I can only imagine the time that went into creating one of those quilts.

Denise said...

Those are amazing quilts! Thanks so much for sharing the pictures. I can't even imagine the work that must have gone into making them. There again, I wouldn't have the patience that it takes to make a pot holder much less a quilt! Have a nice day.

Kelli said...

LOVE quilts! :) I inherited nearly 30 quilts last spring and I've been putting them to good use, some in my decor and some on my beds! They truly are pieces of art, aren't they?
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm definitely adding yours to my faves...I like what I see! Looks like we have quite a lot in common. :)

Heidi said...

Hi Marcia! Thanks for stopping in to visit me. I enjoyed seeing the quilts as I quilt myself. If you look at my handwork blog, you can see some of my work. The vintage books in your last post are amazing! I love books and have a weakness for old books.

Hugs ~

I have a few friends that quilt...they have tried to teach me but I am really useless when it comes to this kind of stuff. I so admire anyone that can make one of these beautiful quilts. Thank you for visiting me.

Those were certainly some amazing quilts. I'm glad I didn't have to judge the quilt show! What a wide variety and unusual subject. I enjoyed seeing both of your quilt posts.
