A group quilt show...

My friend Dianne goes to another quilt group and they had organized a small show for the other members. Of course I had to tag along. I just took some photos of the general collection because I wanted to show the interior of the church where it was held. I forgot to take a photo of the outside but I have found one here. Across the road is the sea so it is a very popular historical church for weddings. Although I have never attended here - it has been a part of my surroundings for as long as I can remember. So as you can see it is a beautiful place to have a quilt show.....

Sometimes just looking at a smaller collection of quilts prevents overloading and I have to say that my appreciation was great. It was only held for two hours because it was really just for sharing, so I am glad that I could make it.


It certainly is also inspiring because these are local quilters and it proves once again that beautiful quilts are being made everywhere. What a feast for the eyes!
P.S. I just had to add this page that I found of the church in 1890 . The shoreline looks different now. I love the little bathing boxes at the water's edge. It's funny how writing about one thing can lead on a tangent - but in this case a nice one because I learnt something new about my area.

What a great post Bettsy. Thanks for sharing that and doesn't the church look fabulous with the pews draped in all that colour. I enjoyed the historical link too.

Having the quilt show in the church with the quilts displayed on the pews and hanging above is really enjoyable. Thanks for sharing the photos.

What a lovely sight! I can't believe it was all for only two hours! I also love the two pictures of the church that you linked to. Love all things old and historical!
