Town & Country Quilt Show

Have you missed me? I'm sorry I've been sort of MIA. It's been a busy few days and I'll put up a couple of posts at least today trying to catch you up.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday was the Town and Country Quilt Guild's biennial show in Joplin, MO. As usual there were so many really fabulous quilts. Jane Anderson of Oklahoma took home Best of Show and her work is always just breathtaking. There is really no way to get pictures that adequately show her level of expertise. All of her quilts are completely hand made, from piecing to quilting. Her hand stipple is something to behold. I've seen her quilt "You Name It" in several shows over the last couple of years and I never get tired of studying it and marveling that any quilter can achieve such perfection.

So grab your beverage of choice and enjoy a small sampling of quilts from the show.

When you are done with that, if you haven't taken the time to view some of the entries in
Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival (previous post or link in sidebar) make sure you do so this week.

thanks for sharing all the wonderful quilts Mary. I have a feeling I will come back and look at it again. I've been spending too much time on the computer looking at all of the quilts on Amy's quilt festival and I'm only about half way done with that!
