Vermont Quilt Show

This past weekend my Mom and I drive down to Burlington for the Vermont Quilt Festival. This was my Mom's Christmas gift to me, as long as she didn't have to go to the show LOL! Well, luckily I was able to meet up with one of my Flickr friends Amy.

We had an absolute blast! We did two quilt shops and an entire quilt show in 7 hours and didn't stop talking the whole time LOL! I have a few quilts from the show I will share with you.

I had to have my Poppy quilt pictures as I just adore them.

One of my favourites by far, 259 George Washingtons appliqued on 259 different fabrics. I love quirky and this is so much fun!

This one is stunning... the quilt maker over dyed shirts she found at second hand stores to make these basket blocks. Up until this point I was not a fan of baskets but now I am in love LOL.

This one is for my friend Barbara who loves embroidery and cat quilts:)

This one was just marvelous with hidden details in the quilting, as well as little miniature landscapes in each of the boxes you see framing the centre. I have included some close ups below.

Well, I think this is a long enough post... thanks for reading about my amazing weekend!


  1. I love the George Washington quilt! I am glad you had a fun weekend.

  2. I don't think I've ever seen and liked a basket quilt before, but that's pretty awesome. (It helps that it doesn't look like baskets, exactly, it could be a tile pattern on a floor.)

  3. Kitties! I saw the quilt, and then I saw the message. You are too cute. Love seeing the pictures you've posted of yourself recently. Hope you are feeling better.

  4. Looks like sooooo much fun!! And you got to meet Amy:)


Thanks for your two cents!
