I went to the Vermont Quilt Festival on the weekend and it was amazing. There were so many incredible quilts and so many talented quilters. I went on a bus trip and my dh came along as the token male. He has a wonderful appreciation for quilts so most of our time was spent looking at them. I had a specific wish list of things I wanted to get and ended up finding all of them except for one.

This quilt was made as a wedding gift by Ginny Kottkamp. It reminded me of the crumb squares I have been seeing lately.

This quilt is called A Passion for Pinwheels made by Nina Klinck. I really love her use of the pinwheels in the borders.

This is Scrappy Dresden Medallion made by Sharon Snyder. I love anything with Dresden Plates!

 This is what I bought at the show. I had seen some Twister quilts so now I can make one myself. I also needed some yellow, orange, purples to finish off my nine patch quilt. I had heard good things about fork pins so I wanted to try them and the bobbin holder was something that I was curious about and it was the best price I had seen. I got some cute magnets including one that says Canadian Quilter.


These items are the things I won on the bus trip. We were able to bring on the bus trip items that we no longer needed and exchange them for tickets. We could also buy more tickets. On the way down we had draws for the items that had been donated, and with the money from the tickets our organizer bought items at the show which were drawn for on the way back. It was a lot of fun and going to quilt shows always inspires me. Bring on the summertime quilting!

Sounds like you had a lot of fun. I have yet to go to a quilt show, but I have a friend that goes to lots of them. I will go soon, money just hasn't allowed for that yet.
