If you're traveling to or live in or around the Finger Lakes Region of New York -- be sure to carve out a couple of hours this weekend to visit the "Quilts, Vines & Finger Lakes Wines QUILT SHOW" being presented by O'Susannah's Quilts & Gifts.
O'Susannah's is a lovely quilt shop located in Watkins Glen, NY, at the base of Seneca Lake (the largest of the Finger Lakes).
Wonderfully decorated, large enough to sleep 8 quilters, and setup with all the right features for the perfect quilt retreat, the Upstairs Inn is a great place to escape (especially in the fall when the local grapes are being harvested - ohh the aroma)...
The image below is the living room at the Upstairs Inn - Isn't it beautiful ? You can see and read more about "The Upstairs Inn" by clicking here.
this album on Facebook -- just click the link to see them -- you don't need a Facebook account.
Here are a few of my favorites:
A Sharon Stroud design -- I'm sorry I didn't capture the quilters name -- all needle turn applique and hand quilted. SO pretty!
To see more of the quilts from the 2013 show -- click here to view the Facebook Album. No need to have a Facebook account - you should be able to view the album without one.
Below are the quilts that I decided to enter into this years show... I dropped them off today.
Spring Basket -- Pattern available on my Craftsy Store -- click here.
Redbird and Berries in Wool -- cotton version of the pattern is available from the Moda Bake Shop.
The template for the wool version (slightly smaller) is available on my sidebar.
Last but not least...
Redbird Christmas Pillow - pattern available on the Moda Bake Shop and the Applique Template is available on my sidebar.
This show is just for fun! No judging going on -- but you should see the talent on display!
Well -- the weekend is nearly upon us -- Our nephew is getting married on Saturday so you'll find me at the Quilt Show sometime on Sunday. You can get directions and hours by clicking here.
Do you enjoy going to Quilt Shows ?
Happy weekend everyone!
