SAND, SURF & SUNSETS QUILT SHOW

The Sand, Surf & Sunsets Quilt Show was held at St. Patrick's Catholic church in Grand Haven, MI this past week. Since the Attic Window Quilt Shop was a vendor there, I had to go check things out. Persons who attended the show were greeted by this lovely lady. I couldn’t resist. Check out her wine glass and shoes. Isn’t she beautiful!

This Wallhanging is called Raccoons at Midnight and is by Nancy Einfeld. She did a fantastic job of capturing the look on the racoon’s faces.


This quilt is spectacular. It is called All Creatures Great and Small and is by Barb Bredemeier. She said it took her five years to complete the quilt.

This is a close up of one of the blocks. Check out that little mouse climbing the flower. Barb said she did all the appliqué, embroidery and quilting by hand. Wow! Barb you are fantastic!
.
There were so many beautiful quilts at this show. I wish I could have taken pictures of them all. The show is over now, but be sure and plan next year to attend this fabulous show.

Allie of Allie-Oops Sweet Happy Life has some has some nice vintage designs for you. Check it out.

Until next time,
Caroll

I SO wish I could have been there! I love that lady sitting on the bench, she's wonderful - wouldn't she be fun to make? I love the raccoon quilt, it reminds me of Charley Harper artwork. The second quilt is just amazing - I can see why it took her 5 years! WOW!
Thanks for the shout-out on the patterns - I love sharing!
