Quilter's Showcase 2014 [picture heavy post]

My friend Cathy and I went to the quilt show today, it was a gorgeous day, and the quilt show was lovely.  Not as big as we'd hoped, but it was nice and Cathy didn't have any trouble finding purchases.  Unfortunately, I didn't bring my good camera, and my phone's sd card filled up before I was done - had to borrow Cathy's, she'll send me the rest of the pics, but here's some wonderful quilts we saw.  The pic of the quilt is first, then the quiltmaker info underneath.

There are more, but I think this post is long enough.  I was delighted with the number of quilts that were hand quilted, and embroidered.  After all that shopping and looking, we were getting pretty hungry, so off we went to Tony's restaurant....if you've never been there, it's a treat.  Hamburgers come with a pound of bacon on them.  Yes, a POUND.  I had the Belgian pancakes, Cathy had the French toast, and we had a side order of bacon....

...which was also a pound of bacon.  We boxed it up to go but I forgot the box!!!  My boys were not happy with me.

Hope you enjoyed the show, wish you could have been there!

[And no, we did NOT finish our food, lol!!!]

The piece with the doily flowers is oh so interesting. Creative use of doilies one might have collected.

Fiona said...

the quilts are amazing.... I can't choose a favourite....
lovely food... I have to say I get annoyed when they provide such huge portions... I'd rather pay less and get a smaller manageable amount....

Thanks for sharing the beautiful quilts, and the credits. One of those, at least, was in Chattanooga, too. Somewhere I have a picture of it. Now that food - um, looks sinfully fabulous! I'm glad you had a chance to go with your good friend.

Beautiful quilts!!! Thanks for all those pix. The second I spotted the food I knew the exact place you ate. Eating your entire meal at Tony's is almost the craziest thing a person can attempt to do. It is sooooo over the top.

Smiles,
Kelly
