Sharps Chapel Women Attend International Quilt Show

Last weekend, the International Quilt Show was held in Cincinnati and a group of women from Sharps Chapel joined a bus tour and headed north to check it out.  I was in Dayton at the time and arranged to meet them there for one day.

The first photo shows everyone in our group seated for lunch inside the convention center.  Three women were from Sunset Bay, two from Norris Shores, one from Tanglewood, and two from Pinnacle Point (near the ferry).  That’s me in the cream jacket on the left.

It was a huge quilt show, with hand made quilts from all over the world.  I did not count the number of quilts, but there were easily 150.

And of course, where there are quilters, the quilt vendors cannot be too far away.  It was fun to see all the gadgets we supposedly can’t live without.

The two quilts I photographed here were my favorites.  I like geometric shapes and color.  It was interesting to get to know the other women better and learn what they were interested in.  Some liked quilts with flowers in them.  Others had preferences for quilts that had not been embellished with painting.

I am so glad that I was able to meeting up with the group and share the experience with them.  Thanks, Nancy S., for helping to make this happen and making me feel welcome.

If you are interested in quilting, there is a quilting club in Sharps Chapel.  They welcome new members.

Life is an adventure!
