Quilt Show

12 Nov

Saturday our Quilters Guild held a quilt show at the USF Botanical Gardens in Tampa FL. There were quilts you could view in the gardens, boutique items for sale, charity auction, opportunity quilt, and vendors. We had a beautiful day for the quilt show outside and the weather was just perfect. The quilts looked so pretty hanging from the trees with the wind blowing the quilts. Actually ,this was my first quilt show to be a part of and I really enjoyed it. There was a lot of work putting together the quilt show for example, we had three dry runs before the show to make sure we knew where to place the quilts on the trees. But, all the hard work payed off and we had lots of people come and look at all of the beautiful quilts and enjoy the gardens too. If you ever get the chance to go to a outside quilt show  you will enjoy it. All the quilts you see were done by members of our guild. Enjoy the pictures!

There was a lot of work that went into this quilt. Perfect for Christmas!

    Hi there, I’ve just come back for my third visit. I love your quilt show, wish I was there but blogs with photos are super cool. My favs are the breast care one and the 2nd one after it also in pinks, purples and greens.
