We woke up to snow this morning.....

......and remember the roses I posted yesterday, snow and roses are not compatible! :-(  But then I remind myself not to sweat the small stuff.  Instead we will look at some beautiful quilts.

These two charming women were part of the Quilt Mania staff.....and I fell in love with both of them.

There was a large selection of these amazing hand pieced quilts, and they were all fabulous.  I took just a few pictures as a highlight.

This is the first time for me to become acquainted with the sisters Mimick and Simpson.  It was a privilege, they were delightful to visit with.

I needed to have a close up of this gorgeous quilt.

Perhaps some of you have the books which Quilt Mania did of Linda Koenig's designs.  I have both of them as I have always been so inspired by her work.  She passed away this past year and her quilting friends in Indiana made this quilt in her remembrance.

I loved this Log Cabin quilt which was for sale.....the Temperance quilt hanging next to it was also wonderful.

  1. Love the Minick & Simpson medallion quilt. The colors are traditional and the border is wonderful!

  2. I recently purchased a piece of linen at a shop close to home that has a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson printed on it to frame. It simply says "Be Silly, Be Happy, Be Kind". Sounded like wonderful advice to me. I love how you are posting pics that displays some of my favorite people too. Keep 'em coming :)

  3. Thank you so much for the lovely tour of France and the Nantes show. So very sweet to have such photos and your impressions as I will very likely never attend the show nor travel to France (despite a desire to do so).
