For years we went to Cape Cod each summer, and each summer we made a stop at the BayBerry Quilters annual show. Now my DH is a very smart man, but it took him more than a few years to figure out that our vacation week was planned to coincide with that show...cause if you are flexible on dates, you might as well make the trip when you know there's a quilt show in town, right?
This year we headed to Maine instead. Because of camp schedules, football and soccer schedules, work schedules, etc. we were not at all flexible. So I planned the trip, made the reservations, etc. and then set about to see what activities we could do in Maine. And what did I discover? why the Maine Quilt Show!!!! I swear it was not planned around the show.....
But since we were going to be in the neighborhood, it would be rude not to stop, right?
So stop we did and the men went for lunch while I went sightseeing at the show.
Here's a few of the sights...
Indian Paint Brush by Pam Post
Floral Blue by Betsey Henebry
The Grapes of Bath by Wendy Caton Reed
My Garden Quilt by Jo Bunker
All You Need is Love (the miniature version of the famous Beatles Quilt) by Sue Nickels and Pat Holly
Peacock Garden by Carole Cohen Pettinelli
And I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time in the special exhibit of antique quilts and hear Judy Roche talk for a while about colors, designs, and the many wonderful pieces in her collection.
What a great show! and what a great bunch of men I have to take this side trip.
