The Ninigret Quilters hopped on a bus yesterday for the 3 hour drive to New Hampshire for A Quilters' Gathering. I had never been to this show before, so I ignored my loathing for bus rides and joined in the fun!
With a half-quilted quilt at home, I was on the hunt for filler quilting inspiration. This amazing modern quilt by Rose Orr knocked my Red Sox off!
There was a lot more appliqué in this show than we're used to seeing, with lots of cool filler quilting around it.
This anniversary quilt by Carol Smith glows!
And then there's the haul from the fantastic vendors!
V and Co. yummies,
some necessary tools, including a Sharon Schamber Quilt Halo,
aqua for Julia, plum and mustard for the mini swap, and I could no longer resist a bit of The Boo Crew.
On the way home, we stopped at the Quilted Crow, a really lovely shop.
It was a wonderful, inspiring day!
