Wonderful Show

As mentioned earlier, we had a vendor booth this weekend at the wonderful East Cobb Quilt Show in Marrietta, GA (just north of Atlanta) and had a ball! The show is held in the Cobb County Civic Center which is open and spacious, with vendors overlooking the quilt show from the second floor.



This was the view from our booth. There are wonderful skylights in the roof for natural light.

Here's our booth...

Bill made or altered every one of our stands. The free-standing white display to the right is made with the two sides of a crib (I have an incredibly talented husband!), and the "night stand" to the left was altered to hold a hanging rack of fabric. The standing racks on the tables were the sides of a vintage wooden playpen. Cool!
Notice the hand-dyed tablecloths and the rust-dyed town (Bill made it) on the front of our check-out table. Our favorite quilt in the show was one I've shown before by our friend, Frances Arnold...


..and this was my second favorite quilt, which was a whole-cloth quilt made by Judy Alexander. This would look lovely in our home...

Can you see the sinister eyes in the quilt?

There were 400 quilts in the show and too many to comment on, but the dragon quilt (no photo) won the Viewer's Choice Award, and it was well deserved.

Thank you East Cobb Quilt Guild! We had a wonderful time and hope to see you again in two years.

Anita, I just found your blog and what a surprise to see my quilt. I was on vacation so I missed the show and this is the only picture I have seen on it in the show. Glad you enjoyed it. Judy
