Last week I wanted to be outside in the beautiful day, but I really needed to be cutting the pieces for the mystery quilt cut. The “squirrel” won. Um….how about a road trip and beautiful quilts thrown in. After all, there will not be many of these nice days for much longer.
Six Christmas quilts were chosen to go along and get their photos taken. We ended up in Sullivan County, Indiana. My trusty side-kicks (AKA hubby and grand-daughter) are fun to go on an adventure with.
The first stop
The first stop was the county courthouse, which is listed as a National Historic Place. It has a really pretty roof of stained glass. And lots of marble pillars. https://www.cityofsullivan.org/sullivan-county-courthouse
The below quilt is named “Lettuce Be Berry” and was completed in 2014.
The photo below is “Christmas Stars and was finished in 1999. https://indianaquilter40.blogspot.com/2011/12/christmas-stars.html
And here they are hanging together. People who were in the courthouse stopped and commented that they were pretty. I provided an unexpected quilt show.
The next stop
Next stop – The Sullivan County Public Library. It is a Carnegie library and is a neat looking building also with a rotunda and stonework exterior. https://www.sullivan.lib.in.us/locations/main-library/
This one is “Christmas Scraps” completed this year in 2019. https://indianaquilter40.blogspot.com/2017/10/christmas-scraps.html
Here is a “Christmas Stars completed in 2000 for our son. It still lives at our home. https://indianaquilter40.blogspot.com/2011/12/christmas-stars_17.html
This one is “Grandma Came for Christmas”, is hand quilted, and was completed in 1997. https://indianaquilter40.com/grandma-came-for-christmas-hand-quilted/
And finally, a “Flying Geese” quilt that was finished in 1999. Flying geese quilts are so much fun and they look great in any color choice. https://indianaquilter40.blogspot.com/2011/04/flying-geese.html
A ROAD TRIP AND BEAUTIFUL QUILTS
Taking photos of quilts is fun and honestly, who doesn’t want to show off the quilts they make? Look around for interesting places to use when taking photos of your quilts – it can be your own personal quilt show and a fun road show at the same time.
