QAF 2010

The Colorado Quilting Council's annual Quilt-A-Fair was held on Friday and Saturday. On Friday, I stopped at the bank for my one and five dollar bills before leaving town. I buy quilt raffle tickets at QAF and like to have correct change. One thing I did forget to do, however, was to replenish my address label supply, but I had enough to only have to hand write 2 tickets.

Armed with my camera, I and thousands of my closest friends entered the show.

Quilt-A-Fair 2010

This year the quilt show was curated from quilts by the Denver Metro Longarm Quilters Association. QAF hangs the quilts from the rafters so if the photos look a bit skewed to you it is because I had to shoot UP.

Just look at the quilting on this first quilt. Lovely. Of course, by now, you should know that I am a total sap for the 30s style. Quilt is 30s Something: pieced and quilted by Ellen Palmer.

Here's another 30s one by the same quilter. Quilt is My Green Glob: pieced and quilted by Ellen Palmer.

Isn't this scrappy star quilt fabulous? I saw it from a distance and as I got closer it just kept getter better. Sherri's Scrappy Stars: pieced by Sherri Bain Driver and quilted by ZJ Humbach

I've been a bit under the weather lately with what I thought was a cold but has turned out to be a massive sinus infection. Going to this quilt show sapped my strength and I have spent the last two days recuperating. But it was so well worth it.


  1. What a wonderful show, I feel for you has I to have a sinus and throat infection. Take care.

  2. What lovely quilts...I love that 30's one too!

  3. Thanks for sharing. I love thr quilting on the top one.

  4. What a delicious show and tell... food for the eyes and the soul. I adore that concentric circle quilting!

  5. Hey there!! Glad you found my quilt - tee hee!!!

  6. I think I like the scrappy star one the best.

  7. Great choices! I too love the vintage looking quilts! (and the real thing) I'm partial to any star type quilts.
