Aurora Colony Quilt Show

Cory and I made a quick trip this weekend to the Aurora Quilt show at the Old Aurora Colony Museum. It's always such a great setting! They rotate the museum's antique quilts, so I do see many of the same ones every few years. Why is it I don't get tired of seeing them?

First up today is the antique quilts I love so much. Not all of these belong to the museum.










I've seen this one before, but this year it really caught my eye.
It had this great butterscotch border with that brown print! And look at that star print!!
I feel a very green quilt creeping up in the near future....


Great colors.
Lovely quilting.




Hope you enjoyed the show!

  7. Hard to pick a favorite. I do like the log cabin quilt very much. And, of course, the red and green applique quilt. But the quilt with the scrappy strips of flying geese blocks is oh so interesting. The placement of the lights and darks vary from block to block and changes the look of the blocks as I study them.

  11. I did enjoyed this post a lot. I am grateful you took a close up of the strippie style flying geese as I really like the pink background. Turned out to be red! lol It is still a great fabric. Love it. The green Ohio Star quilt is so you. I can see a new green quilt in your future too. :^D I have seen the blue and orange one on your blog before and I enjoyed seeing it again. I mean what's not to like; it's blue AND orange with a bonus black! My favourite colours. Thanks for taking the time to share those eye candies. I appreciate. ;^)

  14. Always love your post on the Aurora shows as I so greatly enjoyed the books I read (actually listened to!) about the colony and Especially about Emma Geisy! She was one feisty lady! If I ever come to the West coast, that museum will be high on my list of places to visit! Hopefully to walk on the same ground she did!

  18. I LOVED "seeing" the show - thanks so much!! The applique quilt with the baskets is truly marvellous!! I smile to see the double lines of quilting march right across the applique and it looks fabulous! I stress over quilting designs too much. Lovely quilting in some of the other quilts too.
