Kernersville, NC Quilt Show

Thought I'd share a few pictures of a quilt show I attended today. Pictures just don't do them justice. I could easily have taken this one home.

This one caught my eye too! Mrs. Goodneedle was the quilter.....fantastic quilting!!


Ah...then there is this one....oozing with charm.


But this one! OMG!! This was a favorite for sure....again, picture does this no justice! It was simply stunning!




Today was an absolute joy in meeting Mrs. Goodneedle. We live just a hop, skip and jump from each other's doorstep and hope to do some serious stitching together in the very near future!!
Then I met another blog buddy Carrie. You know this blogger....the gorgeous appliquer! It was a pleasure to meet her and perhaps I can learn some things about applique from her since she too is just a short distance up the road from me!
Also today I met up with some guild members who mentioned they read my blog. They don't have one of their own and say they aren't bloggers but love to read mine. I'm laughing here....if your lurking than you wanna be a blogger. (hey there Cathi and Sandi!!)
I've got my three Pay It Forwards....thank you....365 days to accomplish the task. Woo Hoo!! Let me know if you missed out and want to participate....my three will be looking for their three.

I'd like to participate in the PIF, but I might need help getting 3 bloggers. My blog is still new, and I think you have been one of the only people to leave any comments yet! Hopefully things like this will help me spread my blog. Beautiful pictures from the show, thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous quilts...I can just tell they are spectacular in real life! I think it's fun to meet fellow bloggers as well!

Pat said...

Nice quilts you showed and I"m glad you got to meet several nice quilting pals. I took part in TWO PIF's not too long ago and still haven't made the 6 gifts I need to make to fulfill my commitment. I'm working on them, though. :)

Suzanne said...

Oh, those quilts are absolutely stunning. That is real talent!

Carol said...

OMG what incredible quilts. How fun that you got to meet some fellow bloggers and that you all live so close together.

Teresa said...

Thanks for sharing the pictures. How fun to meet fellow bloggers - and you must be just a hop, skip and BIG jump from me as I am in SC. Maybe we should plan a bloggers gathering.

Fiesta said...

Mary thank you for sharing those quilt show beauties.

Libby said...

What a great show . . . and Mrs. Goodneedle, too! *s*

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

You're not going to believe this.... (and yet, maybe you will!) I took pictures of the exact same quilts that you did. Like minds... ;) Definitely we agree on the absolute favorite, wasn't that one simply incredible?!!

Thank you for sharing all the quilt pictures with us. Just lovely quilts. Let us know if your friends are starting their own blogs, I am sure we will all be there to read and enjoy their blogs.

We were gone for the weekend and I noticed you are in the PIF too. Good luck and it will be so much fun.

Cathi said...

What great quilts. Wish I could have gone. I didn't know about that show. But on the other hand, the weather has been so nice I just want to spend time out in the yard. Once the A/c is turned on, I don't want to go out at all!!

MOLLY said...

Girl!! No wonder you enjoyed my blog, we love the same things!! I loved seeing the beautiful quilts from the show and see all the great shinanigans you are up to. Your quilting studio is to die for!!! I must get started on mine(Now where is that can of paint I bought???)

Carrie P. said...

It was a great show. Many talented women.
