Alpine Days 2010 Part I

Saturday was the annual Alpine Days Quilt Show. I always look forward to seeing my friends quilts and talking to people as we stroll along the quilts in the church gym. I photographed some of the quilts to share.
As I walked in the gym an old friend greeted me - my "Going to Market" quilt.
I will never remember all the names of the quilt makers so I apologize. Isn't this fall quilt great.
I thought this quilt with purses was really clever.
I liked this scrap quilt. Perfect for using 2 1/2" squares.
This is Syd's quilt. She had help making this a few years ago from some women in Africa.
I thought this log cabin with a star was really great.
Sunny Days. I really need to make this quilt. All my friends are making it. You know how you are Nedra and Lori.
Another by Syd in wool.
Laurel's Omigosh quilt takes my breath away. Lovely sweater by Janice's daughter (I think).
I thought this quilt was staged so cute with a darling Featherweight.
Love this quilt. I always love houses.
Beautifully designed and sewn. Perfect for scraps.
There were 2 quilts from this pattern. I think this is a Jan Patek design.
Last in this group is one of Natalie's cactus quilts. I'm starting to like this quilt so much I might make one.

I'm on vacation this week but I'm posting ahead. I won't be answering email or comments for the most part. So forgive me. I'll try to catch up when I get back in a week or so. I'm in a hurry to get things done before I go so forgive no hot links.

What a wonderful show! The quilts are all so beautiful - I really love Natalie's cactus quilt and your Going to Market! Also, the ones you mentioned that are truly amazing - the Dear Jane (or whatever it's called) is enough to give ANYONE pause! Loved seeing them all - thanks so much and have a great time off! xo, The Other Nanette

Oh wow! What a great show and tell. Thanks for posting this. I spy TWO gorgeous quilts that are on my "someday" list. Omigish and the scrappy Jacob's Ladder star one. I can't remember it's name. It's a Carrie Nelson pattern. Love all the pictures!
