Georgetown Quilt Show

I meant to post this earlier so anyone that wanted to go to this show had time, but oops!  I only found out about it yesterday and just did a quick trip with the family to Georgetown (north of Austin) to see the quilts.  The city’s Annual Red Poppy Festival is also going on today so a perfect day to visit!

It really is just a small show, but I did take a couple pictures along the way and bought a couple things, supporting some of the great vendors.

Some of my favorite things at the show were the challenge blocks — all poppies!  I think these could make some great quilts!

I also liked this quilt.  Not generally my thing being *so* folksy, but just seems like a great way to use some fabric scraps you have around as well as some big pieces of your fabric favorites.  And I just read the description (impossible to do at the show with the girls), and it appears to be a raffle quilt for 4H — pretty cool!:

I’ve seen versions of this through the years, but this one particularly appealed to me because of the use of batiks:

And finally here’s Elena’s favorite.  She made me take pictures of a couple different quilts, but she proclaimed this as the cutest!  I have no plans to make a Sunbonnet Sue quilt, though — she’ll just have to enjoy this picture!

And the park outside the facility had a great blooming garden maintained by the Georgetown Garden Club — it was beautiful!  I  might just have to finish a quilt quickly so I can go take pictures of it on one of the walls with all the flowers in the foreground — no better backdrop than such pretty blooms!
