MEMORIES OF A QUILT SHOW IN BILLINGS, MT

So far this year I have not been to a single quilt show, and I am missing seeing quilts by other quilters. Quilt shows are fun. Great way to meet other quilters, see quilts, and just generally enjoy being a quilter. I am sharing photos of a show many years ago. It’s fun to see how quilting styles and colors change over the years. Enjoy these memories of a quilt show in Billings, MT back in April 1995.

Scrap quilt with lots of small triangles.

Enjoy each day, the time flies so quickly. I was looking through photos and found these. Twenty five years ago I had small children, lived in the country in Montana, and was still feeling like my quilting style had to be similar to other quilters.

Time and experience have taught me that my quilts do not have to look like other people’s quilts. I have grown comfortable with taking ideas from other quilts and making those ideas my own.

Quilting fills a need in my life that family and job do not fill. I love to quilt and hope to encourage you in the process and completed quilts that you make.

Look at these photos and enjoy the finished quilts. I do not know what inspired each quilt, but each one has a unique story. The makers are unique people so the quilts show be unique too, not just copies of other quilts.

When you have a chance, please visit a quilt show. Take a friend along and make a fun day of it. My mom and I went to this one. She was not a quilter, and seeing the quilts through her comments was really eye opening for me. Enjoy the memories of a quilt show in Billings, MT back in April 1995. More importantly, enjoy the process of your own personal quilt journey.

  2. I have only lived in the Billings, MT area for a few years and the guild does put on a great show. Thanks for sharing photos from a quilt show here long before I was in the area.

    1. When I lived there, the guild was really active and did put on a good quilt show. I missed going to quilt shows last year, hope to see a few this year.
