Here is another look at some of the quilts I liked from the Charlotte Quilters' Guild show, which I visited on March 8.
This one is a good example of hand-stitching used as an embellishment.

|Batik Winding Way, by Claudia Reynolds|
|Cosmic Jewels, Made by Mildred Gwinn, quilted by Janice Hayes|
|Mutual Friends and Common Interest, by Phyllis Tarrant|
At the guild's boutique shop, I noticed the display of pet garments. Roberta Morgan mentioned doing a charity fundraiser at Capital Quilters' Guild's next show. It would be an "Arfwork" challenge to make things for pets which would be sold in a silent auction.
There was a special category of challenge quilts called "Postcards from the Garden." They looked very festive hanging from a clothesline against a black background.

|Out Again!!!, by Ellen Mabry|
|Staring Contest With an Italian Grasshopper, by Donna Hartenstine|
|Passionate Roots, by Susan Edmonson|
As I mentioned in my last post, there was a large vendor mall at the show. I visited one of my favorite quilt shops, Quilters' Loft of Mooresville, NC. I just had to get this packet of jungle-animal themed fabric.
