Friends + Quilts = Love

Friends + quilts…what is not to love?!

I recently traveled to Ithaca, New York to visit a very dear friend AND to attend the Tompkins County Quilters Guild Traditions & Beyond 2017 Quilt Show

Every other year, the Tompkins County Quilters Guild organizes and sponsors a quilt show.  Entries are welcome from guild members and non-guild members.

There were hundreds of quilts to gaze upon with wonder and amazement.  Below are a few highlights for your “gazement” pleasure.


Love the zig zag stitch!


Bold prints AND hand quilting


Bright batiks with a dark background were spectacular


Pretty petals


Isn’t this quilting beautiful?


I wanted to bring this home with me!


This mini quilt had many tiny dots…it was exquisite!


Another one I wanted to bring home!

After the quilt show, I snapped a pic of this beautiful dahlia in my friend’s garden.  This could be inspiration for a flower quilt design…hmmmmm.


But wait, there’s more! How about this one?


Thanks for the lovely weekend, dear friend, I’ll be back!
