Oaks Show 2018
As is our custom, Marsha and I went to the Mancuso show at Oaks today.
Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild had a dedicated section for our exhibited quilts which were juried by a Guild committee.
I submitted three quilts and two were chosen to be in the show.
This is Nine Patch. I simply fell in love with the colors and the fabrics and wanted to show them off. I couldn't think of a better way than a good old Nine Patch.
My local machinist, Mary Ellen Ruhling, did a wonderful job of quilting Nine Patch.
Of course I had to include a test pattern (wonder if my kids have any idea what that might be!) and some "snow" that we used to get when those rabbit ear antennae weren't aligned properly.
Again, quilting by Mary Ellen Ruhling.

I think there were perhaps 20 or 24 of these and all were on display at the show.
These are just a half dozen of them.
Which one do you think is mine?
I didn't do a lot of shopping. I picked up a yard of fabric I needed for a border on a quilt that just came home from the machinist, and I found three irresistible FQs, and that was all.
I took pictures of a few quilts that I especially liked. I didn't copy down the names of the artists.
