I’ve thought for years that quilt shows should be held simultaneously with woodworking shows, and many of you know exactly why!
Happily, I found that the Catawba Valley Quilters’ Guild in Hickory, NC, holds their show concurrently with Klingspor’s woodworking show! My husband and I attended this past Friday and were so happy to be able to do so.
Here are just a few of the quilts that were on display.
Here are pics of a few of the blocks (are they still blocks if they’re round?)
Some of the quilt labels had no information on the design source for the quilts, though I recognized some of the patterns. Where information was given about the design source, I’m listing it.
Of course there were many more beautiful quilts, but this gives you some idea. I hope we can all go back to “in person” quilt shows soon!
I’m happy for you to have made it to a quilt show, and that there was an activity for your husband too. Perfect! Looks like you saw a nice show, but I’m very surprised that no information was with the first quilt. Really, that’s almost inexcusable in this era of giving credit where it’s due… and especially being a winner from the previous year, the info would have been available, right? If I was the quilt owner, I’d be upset. Anyway, looks like you saw some good ones. Our local quilt show is at the end of January, and I”ll have three quilts on display there. I’m looking forward to it.
Agreed. I was surprised to hear the nonchalant response to Zippy’s inquiries about their winning quilt!
I was surprised it wasn’t labeled. It was beautiful and I would want credit if it were mine.
And I’m looking forward to seeing how your quilts do in the QuiltCon scramble.
Zippy! Are you thinking of entering for next year’s show? I think you should! It appears this is the perfect place for both you and hubby to enter your pieces each in your respective categories. Plus, it offered up a great range of quilts to view. Only 3 hours from Florence…hmmm might see what other upcoming events Hickory has to offer! Wish I’d known about this one.
Guild is Catawba Valley Quilters’ Guild. Maybe you can find them online and follow for news of next year’s show.
Wonderful quilts! The Esher Christmas tree is amazing. Thanks for sharing.
Wow John would love that if he could pop over to a woodworking show while I went to a quilt show. Did you and your hubby compete on who bought the most treats from vendors from their show?! 😉
Thanks for sharing those quilts and you gave us a virtual quilt show! I really like the Fun with Pinwheels one!
Thanks for sharing your images of the quilts on show. I agree that quilting and woodworking displays complement one another. Here’s to a new trend.
Now we just need to get the woodworkers onboard 🙃
Yup! A challenge
I agree that the labels should give information on the design source. The Happy Trails quilt, for example, used the Trail Mix pattern by Mabeth Oxenreider, published in American Patchwork and Quilting around 2016.
I liked Connected Places, with its interesting set.
Now that you mention it, I know that pattern too. I’m glad you agree with me; sometimes I feel like I’m being too critical.

Loved the vicarious show experience! And love the Escher Christmas, though the others were appealing too. My guild plans its in person show this spring. Fingers crossed. Guess I have some quilting to do.
Aha! You will be listening to your books rather than reading them for a while, sounds like. I’m anxious for one of my guilds to have an in-person show, too.
