Vermont Quilt Festival I

I recently visited the Vermont Quilt Festival. I've only gone to this show for the last three years (how did I not know about it before that?). Now it is on my MUST do list!

This quilt was the Best Of Show. This is beautiful, but simple...the kind of quilt people who aren't total obsessive compulsives could make. So many times the Best Of Show winners are quilts that I look at and thing "I'd never have the patience to even try that!". This one on the other hand is a type of quilt that even I would take a stab at making. I wouldn't be a successful, but I wouldn't be totally intimidated, you know what I mean? I think that the quilt on Nicole's blog is the same one.

This peacock quilt is the one I voted for as Viewer's Choice.

This one with the dog on the quilt was Thing One's vote for Viewer's Choice.

Pretty! My sister quilted a raffle quilt for the Venice quild that won a 2nd place ribbon at Vermont this year. One of these days I'm going to go to the show.

OMG, you are right! That is the same Garden Fence quilt I am working on. Didn't that turn out gorgeous??? Now I am really inspired to get cracking on all those checkerboard lattice strips!
