I went to a quilt show last Friday with several friends. Attending a quilt show is like going to an art museum. Some of the pieces call out to you and some are gorgeous but not meant for you because of style or color combinations.
There were rows and rows of absolutely gorgeous quilts lovingly made in every size and style you can imagine. I took a lot of photos, but don’t want to put you to sleep early on a Monday morning so here are a couple that called my name.
The one in the top right was a Beach Boys theme made for the quilter’s husband. Several of the shirts including the one on the right even had tiny sunglasses in the pocket.
My sewing machine traveled with me to SC this year, and I’ve enjoyed being able to sew in between adventures or walks on the beach.
I made a folded star that was given away at the February ladies’ luncheon and two mug rugs and a fabric box for the March luncheon. I also made a mug rug with sea glass fabric for a special friend from Maine, and put together 90″ of piano keys for my granddaughter’s quilt top that I’m working on. Now, I’m working on the quilt blocks.
No quilt show is complete without a luncheon. We decided to dine at Deck 383, which is known for its upscale shabby food and a monstrous deck at the marina overlooking the Wachesaw river.
What is upscale shabby food? Well, how about the Slow Roll sandwich with Southern comfort, like a summer hammock swing – grilled bologna with caramelized onions on a soft brioche bun.
Six of us ladies sat under the gazebo and enjoyed a lovely lunch, great conversation, and a beautiful view, but no one ordered the Slow Roll.
Thanks to my friend, Sue, our official party planner, for taking this photo and sharing it with us today.
If you’re headed off to work this Monday morning, I hope it’s a productive one. If you’re lucky enough to not be headed to work then may it include an adventure, time for your hobby, delicious food, or good conversation with family or friends. 🙂
