Charlotte Quilters Guild Show - March 9-10, 2012

Yesterday Pam, Courtney and Erica set up our booth for the Charlotte Show!  We were slow moving and somehow took twice as long as we normally do............or did we bring more than normal??

This is a show you don't want to miss...........over 250 quilts.............beautiful...........the members have outdone themselves this year!!

I took some pictures of some of the ones I liked just to wet your appetite for the show!  There is also a bead show in another building next to the show!

So come out Saturday and see the show, visit your favorite vendors .............stop in and say hello to Pam, Reba, Sandy, Elaine, Courtney, and Pat will be doing demo's all day!  Pat will be at the demo table showing you how to use some wonderful tools and great techniques!

Didn't have my glasses some of the pictures aren't clear.............but this might entice you to come to the show and see the other 250 quilts that I didn't take pictures of!

Only 8 years and I'm done fishing!!  Just kidding Carla!! 

Tumbling Blocks and no Y seams - you have to come see how it's done!

Better in person!

Check out the binding......can you see it??  Binding blends right into border fabrics!

Justine's finished Stitcher's Garden..........lots of fun embelishments!

Liked this landscape!
