You may have noticed that we have not been blogging very much lately. May was a difficult month for Sue with the passing of her father-in-law and both mother and mother-in-law first hospitalized and then in rehab. Both still continue with recovery but are improving. Now that summer is rapidly approaching we will try to get ourselves back on track to blog more consistently.
Last weekend was the annual Quilters Unlimited show in Northern Virginia. Both of us were able to attend, but on separate days, so you will get our individual viewpoints on this show. By far, Sue's favorite part of the event was the Fly Me to the Moon exhibit, but she'll save that for a separate post. First, today's post covers the main part of the show, which consists of quilts made by members of this guild. QU has 11 chapters and over 1,000 members; members are able to submit up to 4 quilts for the show. This is a non-judged event. As well, each chapter has their own small display area that can include group challenges. Along with the show, vendors, demos, and classes round out the event.
These are Sue's favorites from the main show.
Of course, these are just a few of the many quilts on display. There are many exceptional quilters in Northern Virginia and it is always a show worth seeing. Stay tuned to see what Elizabeth highlights from her visit.
