Pauline met me in front of the City Hall in St. Albans yesterday, and we spent a nice hour or so looking at all the quilts. This was my absolute favorite.
Guess I am just drawn to center medallion quilts with many borders. The colors in this quilt were great, and really popped on the nearly gray/black lines on white background. It was termed a "lap quilt," and I found their categories interesting - bed, lap, crib, wallhanging, mini. There was a red and white challenge that was quite nice, too. There were only a few hand-quilted quilts, and my favorite of these was a map of Boston. The red quilting represented the streets, and some landmarks, notably Fenway Park, were drawn on with Pigma pen. There was a lovely bed-sized quilt with applique and hand quilting, but the maker didn't erase the blue quilting lines. I wonder if she was afraid to, due to the possibility of colors running?
After the show, we walked down the street to a restaurant, passing a number of store windows with quilts in them. Very cute! After lunch (Caesar salads), she went to a birthday party, and I headed home with a slight detour at Kohl's. The weather has been beautifully warm the last few days, and the snow if melting rapidly. Spring seems finally here!
