East Cobb Quilt Guild Show - Georgia Celebrates Quilts

I spent the day with the WannaBees at the East Cobb Quilt Show.  If you can get there, go.  It is so worth it.  It's a very forward, bright, happy show with so many unbelievable quilts that I completely gave up on the Viewer's Choice.  I couldn't pick.   

It was great to see some WannaBees projects hanging, especially the one with a ribbon!  Lene's quilt, Cosmic Creation, won 3rd place in the Pieced, Medium category.

There were also several quilts from our guild members, many of whom have "dual citizenship" with East Cobb.    Fran won the Best Hand Quilted ribbon for her gorgeous Mom's Log Cabin in the Woods.

Some of my other favorites included this gorgeous chuppa called Branches of the Same Tree by Luci Sunshine, Betty Gay White, and quilted by Regina Carter.  According to Laura, the newest WannaBee, the Hebrew letters say "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine."  Swoon.

I must be in a romantic mood, because one of my other favorites was Megan and Cree's Wedding Quilt.  This is a simple pattern with marriage advice written on some of the blocks. 

They got some great advice!

This post is getting picture heavy, so I'll share one more in keeping with the theme and save the rest for another post.  Celebrating 60 Years of Family by Valerie J. McCarley was a 60th anniversary quilt that made me say, "Aha!"  I have been dying to do a family tree quilt with photo transfer, but haven't been able to figure out the design I want.  Using the images in the border is a stroke of brilliance! 

I like how she did the family tree part:

Interspersed with the family photos were some special sayings.

Okay, I'll save the rest for another post so this one doesn't take forever to load.  Hope you can get there if you're nearby.
