Last weekend I attended a regional quilt show in White Springs, Florida with 10 other quilters from my guild. I had been once before because they have a Hand pieced/Hand quilted category. I was happy to see the Best of Show was picked from this category–made by Jill Allen and named Marie Webster’s French Baskets with Trapunto. If you are into hexagons and Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilts, check out the quilt on the right also.
My favorite in the Large/Medium Applique category was Osceola Clearing by Ann Opgenorth. I was shocked that this quilt did not win a ribbon. I wish I had taken a close-up of at least one of the wonderful blue bears.
We still had time to stop at a nearby quilt shop–Fabric Art Shop–in Lake City before returning to Jacksonville. That made the day just about perfect in my book.
