In this case, it stands for Local Quilt Show.  The Quilters by the Sea Guild has an annual show in Wilmington,  the 30th of which took place last weekend and I had opportunity to see some amazing work.  
Here's a small sampling:

  This one fascinates me, an all inclusive take on an old standard, this is called "International Sunbonnet Sue".

Last year was my first time at a quilt show, and this year it was fun to go through and be able to identify blocks by name.  Above is a String Quilt...I have one in progress!

Upon closer inspection, I recognized the border fabric on this one:  'Millefiore' by Kaffe Fassett.  I'm using the same fabric pattern of a different color on my newest WIP ~ shown in photo below, 'Cobalt'.

I hope to make one similar to this one someday...really pretty.

I studied this one for awhile, and learnt how it was arranged. 
This would be a fun one to make! 
I think it's Log Cabin trickery :-)

 Stunning!  Made with 1 inch squares, placed just so to create a human face....like pixels ;-)

I want to make one of these also ~ a pretty pastel log cabin.  I turned the camera for the perspective in the photo at right.

Jelly rolls?  Another fun one to make!


And, I hit their Resale Shop for deep discount bargains on guild members' stashes!  The ladies at the check out said, "Wow, you're GOOD!"  Funny...I thought I was being BAD!

  1. Hi Cynthia,
    I love going to quilt shows and seeing all the beautiful quilts people lovingly put together.
    Log Cabin is my favorite block to make I have made several. It can be pieced together in so many different angles for some many different looks.


Thanks for your comments!
