Another Quilt Show!

 Oh My Gosh! (pieced and hand quilted by Rita Jensen)

Yesterday my bee group drove over to Cartersville to see the Etowah Valley Quilt Guild's Show. It was a beautiful day (yes, the sun was even shining!) and the company was wonderful of course, but the quilts were pretty awesome as well!

Not only were the quilts beautiful but the entire show was decorated with vintage sewing items and adorable quilty stuff. It was so fun to admire the decorations as well as the entry quilts.

This quilt was one of my favorites and the machine quilting on it was so special!

3 versionsof the same quilt from a Bonnie Hunter workshop.
How different and wonderful the fabric and setting choices make each one!

And these two quilts were made from the same pattern but the fabric and color choices made them so unique. I love the borders on the left and I love the soft feeling of the one on the right. Both are stunning!

The simplicity of this quilt-as-you-go style string quilt was wonderful. The black check in each block and the solid black sashing made the colorful strings look so rich and bright. This was so simple and so sweet, I really wanted to bring this one home with me. I will just add it to the list of quilts to make 'oneday'. 

I hope you enjoyed this little peek at the amazing show and if you are in the area, you should definitely drive over's very worth the time and effort!

Enjoy every stitch!


  1. Thanks for the photos, Diane. I love that rich version of Omigosh! Most of them are quite light, but this one really glows. It's always fun to see all the different variations. :D

  2. Wow!! What an impressive line up. I am so in LOVE with the first quilt. It's giving me ideas already and that string quilt is absolutely stunning. Thanks a bunch for sharing!

  3. Wow - what a lovely way to spend a day! That first quilt looks amazing with all those pieces.
