Chattahoochee Evening Stars Quilt Show 2010

Last weekend was my guild's quilt show. I think I am now far enough away from all the work and stress that goes in to such an event to show some pictures!  I only had one quilt in the show, which means that is all I have completed in the last two years. That definitely shows how going back to work full time effects quilt output (not to mention planning a wedding/getting married, having a second child start school, and becoming obsessed with knitting).  Excuses, excuses, I know there are plenty of people out there doing all that and more and producing quilts like crazy, I'm just in denial that I am really slow. Mom and Melissa had several quilts in the show, and they both won ribbons!  Here is my Butterfly Garden quilt on display:

Thanks for the compliments! It was a lovely show!

Plus your Jane Sassaman butterfly quilt wasn't exactly an ugly stepsister.

Beautiful quilts and it looks like a great show. We just held ours in Statesboro, GA, two weeks ago and I'm still recovering! Hope you have more time for quilting by the next show.
