Des Moines Quilt Show

I will have to break this post into three just so I don’t crash in the middle. We got to the show at 10:30 this morning to find a good crowd at the 4-H building at the State Fair Grounds. Honestly we get so busy looking that I forget to take pictures and some vendors do not allow photos.

This is our friend Leanne Anderson of Whole Country Caboodle and we’re standing in front of her very fun dog patterns.

Here are the three dog patterns I purchased. Years ago I used Leanne’s first dog pattern to make 9 dog heads in a wallhanging and we sold many of her patterns – until someone stole our quilt right off the wall! Very sad that a customer would stoop so low as to take a quilt from a quilt shop!

Here are some friends at the quilt show.

Here are some antique quilt tops from the Pilgrim Roy Collection -so,so many of them that we liked! Loved!

This quilt was the 2017 Quiltmania project printed in 4 issues. It was magnificent!

Meet Janet, a blog reader who stopped me in the aisle to say “hi”!

Two Bonnie Hunter quilts – Jared Takes A Wife and Ringo Lake.

On to the next post.

    Hey! There’s Chris Moline holding up a medallion quilt! I served on the board of The Quilters’ Hall of Fame with her! (My term just ended, but Chris is still on). She’s a great person…..very knowledgeable!

    Well thanks, as someone said on the third post… love doing a show in my jammies. There certainly were a variety of quilts and the photos were well done to see those little things we look for.
