TTMT #140 March 21, 2023 Quilt Show Hop

This week I talk about the Lighthouse Quilt Guild 2023 Quilt Hop. To celebrate quilt month this guild does a month long quilt show set up in 8 different libraries. It was fun to see all the different quilts. I decided to film my video in front of this Fandom in Stitches Project of Doom quilt. I do not know the maker of this quilt, but she did a great job. We traveled 202 miles and saw a lot of beautiful quilts. It was a great day to spend with quilting friends. We also found a quilted heart and left it for someone else to pick up. Let’s go sew!

Outside one of the libraries, all the flamingos had knitted scarves, sweaters and boots (not pictured). The quilted heart hangs in the bush. We left it, because we thought someone else could find it. Make quilting friends and myself, are on the making end of quilted hearts. (At least we have some in progress.)

This quilt was amazing. This library did not have the names of the makers on the quilts, because they were having people vote on their favorite quilt.

This library only have 6 quilts, but the quilting on this one was fabulous.

The Terrific Tugs were quilts made by second graders. They got to choose their water and sky fabrics, then sew them together. Cut out the tugboat pieces and iron them to quilt top. With right sides together sew, turn and topstitch around the quilt. Then they all wrote about making their quilts. Some wrote about getting to use the iron and sewing machine. Some kids wrote out all the steps to make the tugboats. This was a neat quilt display.

This was a great day trip with friends.

The back of the quilt.
All over swirly flower for the quilting on this little quilt.
The quilting on this quilt includes elongated spirals, wishbones, and paisleys. I love the design process and how this quilt turned out.
The spiral wreath in the center with wishbone orange peals in the middle turned out really neat. I also like how the spirals weave up and down going around the outer edge of the quilt with the wishbone quilting setting it off.
