Our local fair just celebrated it's 175th birthday! Part of the celebrations included a quilt show with just over 175 quilts ranging in style from antique through to modern. I think the quilt block that appeared the most was the Dresden plate - lots of quilts with the whole Dresden block and then quite a few with variations of the Dresden. I found some of the old Dresden variations to appear quite contemporary due to their asymmetry. There was a quilt made from cross stitch work and a couple from old suits. A fabulous way to spend an hour and glean ideas.
The regular quilt show was also running. Quite a few customers had quilts in - congratulations to everyone who got their binding on in time! Below is a customer quilt that won the modern category and received a judges choice ribbon.
