crazy quilt

I went to Bennington VT this past weekend and spent a lovely day with my dear friend Amy. We went to the annual quilt show there. I only took about 85 pictures, hehe...here's a small sampling. I may put up more pictures later.

I'll start with one of our favorite ones. This quilter took the book Goodnight Moon and made it into a picture quilt. We both enjoyed reading that book to our kids when they were small.





The cranes were pieced!






The description on the Poppy Quilt said it usually hangs on a red wall. Stunning.




Exquisite hand stitching on a crazy quilt.









Wouldn't you love to have one of these on your bed?




We really liked the colors and the border on this one, and put our vote in the ballot box for it.



Ok who wants more pictures?

Looks like it was an inspiring show. I love that Goodnight Moon quilt!

More !!! (x1million).

Lucy loves reading Goodnight Moon; she reads it to herself now, which is a relief, but it's adorable to see her flipping through and talking about the pages in her little voice.

Oooooh they are lovely. My 2yo is obsessed with Goodnight Moon right now... mixed feelings on that front. But the quilt is beautiful!

Thanks for sharing the photos - it looks like a wonderful show. I've only been to one quilt show, but it was something I'll never forget.

My mom made the poppy wall hanging for me and it hangs above my bed in my red bedroom! It is stunning. Glad you liked it, she does amazing work. I am very lucky.
