Friday the Thirteenth
It was the first day of the Quilt Show and I thought I would share the feature quilter exhibit today. This is Betty Fikes-Pillsbury, a reknown crazy quilter, local gal, and we are honored to, also, have her as one of our guild's members.
I am blown away by her work to say the least. The piece she is demo'ing on she just started and has so much accomplished - I am amazed.
The large windows in this room really played havoc in getting photos. Large pieces, lots of small pieces, many articles of clothing, and home decor - she does it all. She's even quite the herbalist, too.
AND it was her Birthday!!
This year they added a special exhibit honoring local quilt guilds. I was pleased to see 6 guilds set up displays - 5 of which are member guilds of the Catskill Mountain Quilters Hall of Fame.
Another room with large windows and lots of odd lighting in the room. Love this dresdan!
Fabulous needleturn applique' on this one.
Lots of hearts made by all the members of this guild made for a special quilt.
Beautiful quilt that had just come from this guild's show and had earned best of show.
My guild's display. Unfortunately the little photo screen display device we had some how lost a piece to attach the power. Hopefully there is a fix so we can run them tomorrow.
With close to 200 quilts, wallhangings, appearal, and home decor pieces - I hope I get a chance to get some decent photos of the actual show.
And being Feline Friday on the 13th - had to snap a picture of a black cat! Moe keeping my scrappy project safe while I am gone.
