Wonderful Wednesday - International Quilting Day

Welcome to the next edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  This week I'd like to share what I did on International Quilting Day.  I hope YOU are ready for another...


... Because that is what you're in for today.  Grab a cuppa, relax, and enjoy Quilting From The Heart, a quilt show sponsored by the Capital Quilters Guild, Raleigh, North Carolina.

This is the first quilt we saw upon entry.  The Best of Show:

The ribbons and a close-up of some of the quilting:

Don't adjust your monitor.  The entry is call All Colour to No Color.  I can't imagine having this much gray in my fabric stash:

Wandered in and out of vendor booths on the main isle and got distracted by this beauty:

Wait!!  I know who did this one!!  It was hanging at Cary Quilting Company, in Cary, North Carolina - because the owner made it:

Continuing around the perimeter and visiting vendors, I took this photo for Knittingsuek, who has recently become interested in the art of wool applique:

This rainbow-ish quilt decorated the Silent Auction booth:

Look at the fun backing:

And a shot of the label ( to let the maker know that I try to give credit) even though my phone doesn't always focus properly:

Rainbow quilt at the Wish Upon a Quilt booth:

Ever on the lookout for rainbow quilts to share with my fellow RSC Quilters who participate in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:

A couple more rainbow quilts:

Sometimes, I can't recall why I took a photo.  Usually, I do... 

Color combo:

Green for the March Color of the Month for the RSC:

Wow factor:


I took this photo for Needleb:

How often do YOU see a yellow quilt:

I'm SEW pleased to have been able to meet-up with my Ravelry friend, Graylagran, who lives in the area:

Here we are with the lovely piece of wooden quilt are she bought:

Wait!!  Get a shot with me and Helena:

Now, back to the quilts...

This photo is for Cheryl K:

Loved this quilt and found that it was made by a former beemate:

OMG!!!  This person's 1st attempt at machine quilting feathers:

I'm pretty sure this was at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival:

Interesting block:

Made with denim:

Helena thought B would like to see this quilt...

... But I thought she might like to see this one:

I was interested in the construction of this quilt's border:

Helena liked this one:

A closer look gave an entirely different picture:

This was a fun quilt for fussy cutting your favorite fabrics:

This is in my Joyful Iris Garden quilt:

Fun with Flying Geese:

Fun with circles:

Another interesting border:

Helena like the quilting on this one:

Happy International Quilting Day and Goodbye, CQG!!
