Autumn Decorations and Quilt Show

I love this Autumn arrangement! We got it as Anniversary present from my brother-in-law. Bret made it! He picked apples and oranges and made that branch into a heart shape! Thank you Bret is lovely and very thoughtful gift!

Last weekend we went to a Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in Oaks. Here are some of my favorite quilts:

I did a little shopping:

Enjoy the fall cooler weather and happy sewing!

Finding Inspiration at a Quilt Show

Where do you find inspiration for your quilts?

Is it in new fabric you got or a new pattern or a trip to a quilt show ? We quilters can find inspiration in lot of places. I often get inspired looking at my blogging friends blogs and their creative ideas. I am very excited my mother in-law is blogging now!
She taught me to quilt and I find inspiration looking at her projects, “talking fabric” and visiting quilt shops together. You should check her blog: Happy Sewing Room.

Some of you know that my mother in-law owns a quilt shop and I am very lucky to be able to have a first look at the new fabrics and patterns 🙂
If you are visiting PA and your husband wants to shop at Cabelas you quilting girls should visit Happy Sewing Room Quilt Shop!

Few weeks ago we visited Muncy Historical Society Quilt Show in Muncy, PA.

I really loved this Signature Quilt called the Muncy Compass. They replicated the pattern from an Antique Quilt from 1855.

This quilt is hand stitched and called “Martha Washington Star” in memory of the fallen of 9/11.

You can click to see the center block.

“Quilt for the brave” is made by members of the Hughesville Guild to be donated to a family of fallen soldier.

This quilt is “Box of candy” 🙂

I like the combination of black and white and greens and blues in this contemporary quilt.

This was the last picture I took because my camera battery wasn’t charged. Oh well, I hope you enjoy the quilt show and found some inspiration!

I am looking forward to Hershey Quilt Odyssey show this weekend.

Happy sewing!
