Greetings dear readers! Today I am filling my post with photos of just a few quilts from the Cocheco Quilters Guild show and some of the lovely foliage we’ve had lately here in southeastern NH. Take time to absorb the beauty of the colors and designs and appreciate the creativity in each realm.
The Best of Show was a lovely rendition of a Wendy Williams pattern in wool applique:
Enjoy some closeups:
Here is my guild’s raffle quilt. The ladies on this committee did a fabulous job with a challenging design and we raised a lot of money for charity!!
Here’s a nice rendition of “Stars in a Time Warp” from the Barbara Brackman sew along a few years ago:
I really liked the use of the kaleidoscope block – playing with color and value allows 2 alternating designs to emerge:
My Spirit of Japan quilt was awarded a blue ribbon:
My ”2020 Cancelled” was given a red ribbon (I’ll comment on the judging in a future post😊):
I have a lot more photos from the show to share, including the ”Red and White” exhibit, but I want to share some foliage so will get back to those quilts in future posts. Autumn color arrived later than usual this year and has been more subdued overall, with less ”red”, but areas and spots of beauty can still be found easily if one is looking.
A view of the elk farm fields:
My deck covered with leaves😊!
Lots of raking and sweeping in our future!😐
Embrace beauty and joy wherever and whenever they occur, no matter how brief or seemingly inconsequential.
Be kind, be grateful, and cherish each day, Gladi
