Hauptstrasse Quiltfest

Did anyone attend the Hauptstrasse Quiltfest in Boerne, Texas this past weekend?

There’s just something fun about quilts dancing in the breeze.

I love being able to walk all the way around each quilt. You never know what surprise might be hidden on the flip side. Check out these backs!! They are as fun as the fronts.

Is this antique a beauty or what! Pink cross stitch design and hand quilted.

Another beauty. 87 x 98 and all hand quilted. There were quite a few hand quilted pieces there.

I haven’t seen this block before but it’s really pretty. 1870’s reproduction quilt. I wish it was hung in the other direction.

Sooo many little pieces! I totally admire scrappy little piecing since I don’t have patience to do it myself.

Can’t show quilts without some bright eye candy.

I’m getting excited about the Seasons Row-A-Long! Twenty talented designers have been brainstorming and working hard behind the scenes. I’ve had an inside peek at several rows and they are A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!

Grab a button and spread the word.

One of the sponsors is Northcott and my fabrics have arrived. Woot!

Do they make you think of spring? Can you guess what will be in my row?

Spring~spring~spring~I love spring…and fall… and winter…but not summer. It’s just too dang hot and buggie.
