A Lovely Day

On Saturday we held The Country Yard's Annual Exhibition.
We had sunshine.
We had music (The Red Arrows).
We had plenty to nibble on.
Even Petanque if you were in the mood....
We had Spot Prizes
We had a Viewers' Choice winning quilt. This was a Gail Pan's Bluebirds and Berries
with Suzanne's special touch added to it!
See more of it *here*
And we had quilts carefully scattered throughout the house. My photos do not do the Exhibition justice, nor did I photograph everything. I meant to come back to get more photos but didn't get the chance. The sale in the Shop kept us busy :-)
Several different projects in this room. The John Deere inspired quilt is all hand
pieced and quilted.
And that's one of Lynette Anderson's Chateau Hexagon mystery quilts at the window.
The Double Wedding Ring was gorgeous and one I wanted a
better photo of. The cat disappeared as soon as people started
The quilt on the left is a Bonnie Hunter EZ Street. The one on the right is another
one which has been hand pieced and quilted.
Another Chateau Hexagon on the wall.
On the sofa we have a Barbara Brackman Grandmother's Choice quilt.
Antique Lace class quilt at front of photo.
Here are two more Antique Lace class quilts.
The table centre was also a class at the shop.
Our annual exhibiton is a lovely way to celebrate the year. It's a wonderful opportunity for our quilters to share and display their work.
There are several other posts about the exhibitions. Click *here* for Leeanne's blog and *here* for Suzanne's post.
Thank you for visiting and reading along!
Have a wonderful week
and happy creating!

This looks like such a fun event. I think I can hear the music playing. Leeanne said it was Dixieland, and now that is in my head. : )
I hope your patrons appreciate all of the work you put in to this for them!
