Mountain Quilters Biennial Quilt Show

I had a lovely time last Saturday & Sunday at the Mountain Quilters Quilt Show. Peachester is in a lovely neck of the woods. It makes a great Sunday drive. Needless to say that me, my lead foot , Tom Petty and the Heatbreakers had a wonderful drive back down the mountain on Sunday Afternoon.
Our stall was quite depleted by close of Trade on Sunday. We also picked up a new stockist. Keep an eye on our stockist list over the next couple of days for details. Now for my 3 favourite quilts of the show. All three appealed to me for totally different reasons.
I loved the simplicity of this quilt but I'm sure its construction is anything but. This quilt was made by Trish Griffin.
 This is the detail.
Simply Striking!. Jenny O'Hara said that she made this quilt when bored. using all of the black & white fabric in her stash.
This Quilt was made from recycled jeans. it certainly appealed to my 'make do' side. Barb Grigor used jean cast offs from her grandchildren and op shops. I hope I got all the names of the makers correct. Please let me know if I got it wrong. Well done Ladies and thank you for an enjoyable weekend.

No wonder your stocks were depleted Trish - your display looks wonderful. Love the quilts too. Look forward to seeing you on Saturday at the BiDM.
