Horry County Museum's 20th Annual Quilt Gala

First a few historical quilts that were shown in the bed turning style to protect the quilts, so we only got to see half of each quilt.

An old fashioned yo yo

A magnificent postage stamp quilt in a round the world setting

A lovely old signature quilt where the signatures have been embroidered

A poison green and bubble gum pink ocean waves, beautifully hand quilted
  Some of the modern quilts, these two were hung side by side and my favorites:

This was part of the challenge called "Dressed to the Nines",the rules were : create a wall hanging using only black and white prints, solids or tone on tones only.

This is all thread work!
 Scrap quilts:
This was part of a talk on inch finished hexies scrap quilt.

Lovely strips made into a scrappy barn raising setting

Bonnie Hunter mystery patterns : " Roll Roll Cotton Boll"

" Easy Street"

What a great way to spend a rainy day :0) 

Happy Sewing,

I cannot imagine sewing hundreds of hexies or postage stamps. Though maybe if I'd sewed a handful during every corporate status meeting I yawned through it could have happened.

Thanks for sharing all those lovely quilt pictures. So pretty! And I am cringing at your picture of ice all over the car. EEEK! We're still sitting here under several feet of snow, but ice is even worse. The whole country will celebrate when spring finally arrives.
