Coburg Quilt Show

One of my blog readers let me know her and a friend (both named Lori- all spelled differently though) were going to be vending in Coburg at the quilt show. Although it is a fairly long drive it was a beautiful day and I thought I might as well go. I wasn't disappointed.


Here is one section of Laurie's "booth". Later in the week I'll show you what I purchased. I could have bought a lot more;)
The quilts were great! I was drawn to some that had a lot of tiny pieces!!
Awesome in every way.

Look at this charmer!

I'm a sucker for a heartfelt story too!!

Be sure to get in on my "Out of the Box" giveaway! I'll be drawing a name on Friday.

  1. Can't imagine sewing all those little pieces together, so beautiful. Love an outdoor quilt show, nothing like the sunshine to bring out the colors of the quilts.

  9. What beautiful quilts and so much piecing. I do like to piece and hopefully when I feel better, I can do more quilting on the machine. Love that kitty quilt, so fun. I used to save clothing for quilting and did make some with shirts, now i wish I had kept all the kids clothes and saved them for now.

  10. My mouth was watering just looking at that table full of old quilts! If only I had a magic wallet.
    Those tiny triangles? , were wonderful! What a quilt! Would I ever be crazy enough to do one like that, never! But I love it.
    Great quilt story.

  11. Always great fun to see a quilt show, but it's always equally frustrating not to have been there. Thanks for sharing so many goodies. I spy a pretty pink and green T-block quilt that I would have headed to.
    All those little pieces--so pretty all together.

  31. Fantastic quilts. Love those tiny pieces.
    The Halloween cat story was very sweet. And the cute is adorable.
    Thanks for sharing.

  32. Thanks, Lori!
    Oh, I am such a sucker for large quilts with very small pieces. I was also a sucker for saving/hoarding all possible scraps. If I could put a 1/4" seam on all sides, it got saved. At quilt classes Iʻd unashamedly dumpster-dive ~~ pick thru everyoneʻs paper bag taped to the table. Always good for laugh too. Thanks again for the Coburg treasures. Way to go, Oregon!
