Eye Candy

Yesterday my mini-group hit a small quilt show here in KC and then had yummy gyros at a Greek stand. Here are a few of the quilts that tickled my fancy:




























In a few days DH and I will be embarking on a roadtrip: Henry Ford Museum in Michigan, Niagara Falls, both Canadian and American views, Hershey, PA for chocolate overdoses, and various and other stops along the way. I am so-o-o ready for a trip, and especially, one without airplanes involved! Probably won't get time to post till I return. Enjoy these precious fall days!

Looks like a marvelous show. Many quilts there of our favorite styles and fabrics. The Friendship Garden really looks familiar - was it made by someone on the Primitive Folk Applique list I wonder?

Have a wonderful trip - we'll miss you while you are gone. Know what you mean - may favorite trips are car trips.

Thanks for the eye candy! I like the 4th one - striking color scheme - it looks like a kaleidoscope.

Have a great trip!

What a perfect trip itinerary, I would adore to do exactly the same route. Love the quilts, especially the one with leaves and fruit/veggs.

I don't have a blog, but read yours! There's a quilt shop just down the street from Hershey Chocolate, called Quiltmaker's Cottage. Right before you get to that, there's a great place to eat - Hershey Pantry! Enjoy your trip!

All lovely quilts...my fave is the 3rd one from the bottom, I think it might be a Blackbird Designs pattern.
Have a great trip.

Beautiful quilts.

We went to the Ford museum when I was about 14. I remember Greenfield Village better than the museum itself. I had my 1st taste of Rock Candy there.
Be sure & visit Niagra before 11 pm. We found out that they shut off the lights at night.

The friendship garden is my fav quilt, thanks for the little show.
Have a good road trip. I look forward to hear all about it.

Dawn said...
