The Good Time Quilters, the guild headquartered in Circleville, hosted its annual quilt show last week. The guild is a well-established group and have had an annual show for many years. I have gone for at least 20-25 years, and it was going strong before that, I believe.
This year the venue was new, and gosh what an improvement! The lighting was wonderful; the spaciousness was wonderful; the parking was wonderful. I heard many attendees making very positive remarks about this show.
The location was the gymnasium at Ohio Christian University. The pictures below are taken from the upper level looking down on all the quilts and vendors.
The smells of the kitchen permeated the lobby as one entered.Seating was ample and since I arrived just as lunches were being served, the room was quite full. Off to one side was a separate room for scissor sharpening and 'yard sale' - members bring unused or unneeded items from their own sewing rooms to offer for sale to benefit the guild.
ALERT!! I grabbed a wonderful find in the sale room; I will get back to you in a few days to share it.
Several of the friends I quilt with are in the Circleville guild and entered quilts. I will show you a few. I am sure I didn't find all of them.
Side note: Sharon P. and I have tossed around the notion of using either our French General remnants or our Roman Holiday remnants in a sampler quilt. This can be our inspiration!
Susan's geometric quilt with green border is the quild's mystery quilt from their retreat. Our friend Terry quilted it.
from reading this post that Sheryll was entering her Long Road Home, and look at that red ribbon! Well done, my friend! ;=)
Those are the pictures of quilts from my quilting buddies. I have a few other pictures of quilts that captured my fancy which I will share in another post. And I won't forget to show you what I bought. (It starts with an 'F'.) Stay tuned, dear readers!
Happy Quilting, Friends!
