Local eye candy...The Batting Brigade Quilt Show


I was very happy last Friday to cross the Tennessee River into Florence to partake of the Batting Brigade Quilt Guild's show.

I totally underestimated how many beautiful quilts would be on display and did not take an extra battery for my camera.  I am so sorry to have missed taking pictures of some of the quilts...my apologies to those quilters!


This Alabama Quilt was made by the guild in the 1990's and has been displayed in Welcome Centers along many highways entering the state.


I loved seeing the peanut block...my mother's father was a gentleman peanut farmer near Goodwater, Alabama.

My new hometown of Tuscumbia, Alabama is the address of Helen Keller's home/museum, which is represented by the hand water pump.



I will let the quilts speak for themselves through the quilt labels. You will enjoy the homemade ribbons!












































































































































Uh-oh...worse than usual photography alert...this quilt was made by Betty Hughes.





























Made by Susan Manno...







Now, go finish something!

  6. Do you try to take pictures of all or just your favorites? I find I take pictures of things I really like whether it be Pattern, color or quilting or if things I've not seen before.

  10. Great quilt show. I love those appliqué quilts. Cathy Franks, one of the long arm quilters lives here, and I have a quilt that she did for me a few years ago. Her work is beautiful.

  13. I like the double handle basket quilt. Reminds me a little bit of an antique quilt I saw a few years ago. I have a picture of it somewhere on my blog.

  14. Thank you so much for reporting on shows. I really enjoy the posts and forward them to my small quilt group. I especially appreciate this one because you showed, up close, quilting ideas for the Piece 'O Cake Flourishes pattern which rarely shows up anywhere. I need to quilt mine and am glad of the design ideas. ...arden
