~Quilt Show & Quilt Rack~

 A Very Happy Monday to you!. I just wanted to say I sure do love you all so much, I know I am so behind on my visits, but it doesn't mean I don't think about all of you every day XO.  

Last weekend in our little town a quilt and textile art show was held. This was the first time I have been able to attend and Gary was so sweet and went with me (he's such a great husband) anyway we ran across a quilt rack vendor and I was so excited "Gary says I ran over to see the quilt racks LOL" anyway Chuck Pederson the fellow in the white apron is the master woodworker who makes all the quilt racks (Generation to Generation Heirlooms) Gary is standing next to Chuck buying the quilt rack ladder for me! Yeah I was so happy and could not wait to get it home and hang a few of my quilts up.

 Here she is, and I love how tall the ladder is. The quilt ladder also folds over so I could use it as a rack. If you click on Generation to Generation Heirlooms above you can see the quilt rack we purchased.

 Gary and I looked at every quilt in the show and took a few photos with our cell phone. I tired to take a few pictures for you all of the show vender's booth's, but was told no photo's allowed (not nice don't you think) anyway we were able to take pictures of the quilts, so enjoy a few of mine and Gary's favorites.

Enjoy your week everyone and keep creating!
Kisses and Big Hugs~Elizabeth

Good Morning Elizabeth, What a fabulous gift....your quilt ladder looks wonderful dressed with your quilts.
I enjoyed looking at the quilts the ladies of your town made. There are some very talented ladies as the work was exquisite.
Enjoy your new quilt ladder.
Best Wishes

Strikingly beautiful quilts...I wouldn't want to do the very small pieces ones, though. But they do have such an impact. Congrats on the quilt ladder. It displays your quilts so beautifully. I think you're going to need more! =D

Wow what a great find! Love how you can show your quilts, great for storage purposes and ready to use.
Love the quilt with all the dresses.

It's always a great show.

Dearest Elizabeth and Gary,
Glad you are so happy with your new bought quilt rack and it looks just like it's made for your bedroom. Enjoy it. It sure was NOT nice for not allowing pictures being taken. After all, you bought his merchandise too. And by looking at his website you get the same idea, or not?
Well, we can't change everybody...
Hugs to you and enjoy what you got.

Those quilts are all amazingly complicated looking, but oh so beautiful. So nice that you have such a good husband to buy you the quilt ladder. It looks really nice in your bedroom.
Hugs, Cindy

Rebecca Nelson said...

Oh my gosh...I just LOVE LOVE LOVE Quilt Shows. I haven't been to one in over a year but they just take my breath away. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Now I'm off to backtrack thru your past posts. I've missed so much!

Thank you for visiting me!

PS: I hope you are doing better these days. Losing someone you love so much must be sooo difficult. My heart is with you! said...

Beautiful! The rack, your quilts and that gorgeous chair next to the rack!

What a fabulous quilt show. I came over to see more photos of your quilt rack and your pretty quilts. You have a beautiful collection and they look wonderful in your room! Sweet hugs, Diane

Kay San Nicolas @ Gallery Fifty Eight said...

Some day I will have the chance to attend a quilt show. Your display rack for your quilts is awesome. The quilts are beautiful. I found you at Share Your Cup Thursday.


The quilt rack is wonderful and I saw you featured somewhere, very deserved! What a fabulous quilt show you went to! I love quilts and I'd love to know how to make them. Thank you for dropping by, sweet friend. Hugs,

Blessings, sweet Elizabeth,
Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comment. I'm so sorry you have been down that fearful road of seeing baby with such a difficult beginning. Birth is such a miracle and it's so amazing when those tough little fellows pull through.
I love your beautiful quilts and your rack is just wonderful. What a perfect gift.
I hope you have a great remainder of the week, my friend.
Carolynn xoxo

Hi Elizabeth and Gary, For some reason this didn't come through my list when you posted but I just had to tell you that I love your new quilt ladder and girl those quilts you have on it are incredible! Way to go-yours should have been in the show too.
Thanks for sharing, now if I can get my honey to look at the photos, I'll be set.
Hugs, Noreen

What a lovely quilt rack. And even prettier quilts hanging on it!! I also love that little dirndl quilt... looks like Maria VonTrapp's closet. :-)

I feel like I've found a new friend, Elizabeth! Funny how that happens sometimes. I added you to my Google Reader right after I saw your kitchen and now that I realize you love colorful quilts as much as I do, I can hardly wait to browse your posts!
