Quilt Show Vignettes. . .

Hi my friends,  boy has it ever been a busy week.

Yesterday was the annual quilt show of the “Dog Kennel Girls’ quilt guild.  I was up until 1:00 the night before binding a quilt.

This is a guild that I have been a member of for years.  It is an outdoor show attended by many.  It’s the hi-lite of our year.

I thought I would share with you the cute vignettes that were set up.

Diana created this fun laundry day scene.

Doesn’t this one make you want to pack a lunch and go on a picnic?

It was set up by Susann.

This one looks as though it came straight from grandma’s attic.  It was created by Rae Ann.  Missed getting a pic of her.

Judy displayed this sweet baby quilt on a vintage high chair and her Americana one on a wagon seat bench.

I was going for the “Straight from the Farm” look for my vignette.  Just so happens that I found the perfect spot, under an apple tree.

Amanda created a vintage scene with this ironing board.  She was wearing a darling apron, what happened to it?  Must have taken it off for the pic.

This fish themed quilt looks right at home on this boat shelf.

Diana set this one up also.  She had all kinds of old fishing items.

It’s hard to tell, but this quilt has a bit of cherry fabric in it.  Look at this darling chair my friend, Joyce painted.

I don’t even have to ask.  “Yes, this apron does make me look fat!”  Ha-ha, couldn’t be the body under it!  lol!

Hope you enjoyed our vignettes.

I will be posting a few posts about our show on our blog

Hugs,

Jann

What a great idea for a quilt show - loved all of the vignettes. I also checked out the blog site for your quilt group -- makes me miss when my quilt group was active. No one in my group quilts except for my occasional project, but we still get together to talk and eat. Great post! Sally

Can't believe you got "untired" so fast. The pictures are beautiful. You did a great job. I know how much time it took to get pictures of everything. You are truly committed.

Oh, what fun, Jann...and, a whole lot of work, too! I absolutely loved each beautiful quilt so neatly tucked into it's own charming vignette. Of course, you know me and my love for RED! Those ones, especially, caught my fancy!
I love...love...love all your pretty aprons! You all looked so adorable...and, NO, Jann...Your apron didn't make you look fat!

Love a quilt show and these were all wonderful. The watermelon quilt makes me want a big old chunk right now. And the last one is so darling. Well, I refuse to select a favorite because they are all so terrific. Thanks for sharing them all and they were, indeed, beautifully displayed.

Jann, what a lovely spot for a quilt show. All of the vignettes were so creative -- so much more imagination than just hanging them all in rows.
