Road Trip part II

  As promised here are the rest of the goodies we saw at the Valley Quilters 32nd Annual Quilt Show.  I ran into a familiar face.  So happy for Lolita for moving forward with her publishing company.
 Her black work and primitive style are so to my liking.
"Stitchin by the River"
 I'm awarding her the blue ribbon for best booth design.
Besides the quilts hanging the ladies of the guild have put vintage sewing items everywhere.  Like this old clothes rack ladened with hand embroidered dish towels.
 Or one of my favorite pieces, and a must do, this covered dressmakers form.  
 As always the art quilts are show stoppers.  "Reef Cruisin" by Phyllis Binkley was one of our favorites.
 This guild is famous for their hand quilting and we learned so much from watching the hands on demo in the second room.
 And no trip is complete without a trip to Pollys for lunch after the show.
 That is if you can call cherry waffles lunch.
Have a great weekend, for most of us its a long one which means more time to get some quilting done.
