Quilt Show & A Little Giveaway!

Today I had a lovely day at our Guild's quilt show again. It's always lovely to catch up with my buddies, pore over the beautiful quilts, and of course, partake in a little retail therapy.


One of my dear friends that I caught up with today is Rachelle Denneny. She was the very deserving winner of the Best of Show award this year with her Golden Ivory quilt. My pictures do it no justice, but you can see that it is simply spectacular! I'm just thrilled for her.

You can see some of the amazing detail in this close up picture. It has gorgeous gold work, amazing fine stitching, fabulous trapunto ... I could just go on and on. Thank you so much Rachelle for allowing me to share pictures xox

And now for the little give away that I briefly touched on earlier this week. I received these patterns with an order last month from Patchwork with Busyfingers. They are just delightful, but I know I'll never get around to making them, so I've decided to send them on to a new home. If you'd like them, just leave me a comment, and I'll draw a winner on Sunday evening next week. They're patterns for the English Paper Piecing technique, so if that's your thing, you'll love the patterns. Have at it friends!

Tomorrow I'll check back in and share my purchases from the quilt show. Chatter soon :-)

It doesn't seem possible that a human being could have created Rachelle's quilt (!); what workmanship!!!

Beautiful quilt and I'd love a chance to win the patterns> You are so sweet to share them with a lucky person.

that quilt is beautiful - is that hand or machine - I would need a closer view to tell. Beautiful work either way.
I'm like you I have so many patterns I will never use - don't put me in the give away I would have to pass them on as well. I just wanted to comment on the beauty of the quilt.

AMAZING - absolutely AMAZING quilt that your friend created. Thank you for sharing the inspiration! Do you know if she did that on a longarm or a domestic machine? Surely a longarm with its size. . .

This quilt is outstanding! I was lucky enough to see it in real life on Friday at the Quilt Show - just beautiful work - Rachel was giving a talk on how it was made and I caught just a bit of it ;-)

I recently learned how to paper piece and would love to have some more practice with these cute patterns.

OK, I know I commented before, but the comment seems to have disappeared? I'll give it another try.

I love Rachelle's quilt. It is just stunning. And your Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt is gorgeous too. Maybe some day I'll make my own FWSQ, but it will stay on my wish list for now.
And those patterns, I would love to win them. Keeping my fingers crossed!
