I went to a quilt show!

I can't remember the last time I went to a quilt show. So I cheated and searched my own blog -- looks like it was the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show in 2010. And I didn't realize that there was one close to home this weekend, but a friend who's been overseas for the past few months invited the kids and I to a parade. We missed the parade because I got a late start and the highway was closed off, but we did see some neat old quilts.

I've never seen Drunkard's Path blocks set this way before. Both quilts had the same name -- Road to Someplace or other, or something like that. I thought I could remember it until we got home, but apparently not. Anyone know what it's called?

This one is Lady of the Lake, which is definitely on my quilty to-do list. I don't think I've seen an antique one before.

And this one is so pretty that it may have completely changed my plans to make a pineapple quilt. Or it might mean I need to make more than one.

I bought a set of white percale sheets from an estate sale to use for a Double Wedding Ring quilt, and some scraps from the convenience store. Now they have YARN. I didn't look too closely, but the prices were great. I might need to go back.

That Pineapple is really amazing. I have not seen the Drunkard's Path done that way either.

Was it Rocky Road to Dublin? I love drunkard's path quilts! I missed the post where you explained what the heck "flung" is! And a Lady of the Lake quilt is on my quilting bucket list, too! :)

I love all the quilts. The Lady of the Lake is my favorite though.
