Vermont Quilt Festival

We are back from a busy 6 days up in Burlington, Vermont. My quilt “Pennsylvania Hearts & Hands” won three ribbons at the Vermont Quilt Festival: Best Mixed and Other Techniques, Best Antique Reproduction and a blue ribbon!

I always like to go to the shows when my quilt is entered, and it was extra special to have my quilt in the Vermont show as I have been going there almost as long as I have been quilting! It’s a wonderful show, I especially like seeing the antique quilts from the Pilgrim/Roy collection and to hear Gerald Roy talk about them. I met some new friends and saw some old ones. I also managed a quick trip to the Shelburne Museum to see their current quilt collection on display. Now its back to work, with lots of fresh inspiration!
