What a great weekend!
Classes were awesome & well attended at the Redbud Festival. Since this was my first trip to Barbourville, KY, I was immediately wowed by these awesome murals commemorating the rich Civil War history of the town.
Then to be wowed again by the quilts in the quilt show:
This Dear Jane by Paula Philpot of London KY was best in show. Sorry I couldn’t get a better pic, but the quilts were on the second story and I would have fallen off a railing to get a full pic of the quilt (s)
This blue ribbon winning wall hanging was adapted by the quilter from a coloring book picture (WOW)
For you Elm Creek fans, there were 2 Sarah Samplers
I loved this quilt too…so much movement & color!
This quilt was the best hand quilting blue ribbon winner. The quilt maker’s notes indicated that this quilt was a memorial to her parents’ marriage throughout all the years.
This last quilt stole my heart. This is the quilting I remember my paternal grandmother making.
Hope you enjoyed the trip to Barbourville with me, though it was virtual! Maybe next year you can come take a class!
