Idaho Quilt Show

Dear Readers,

Last week, I wrote about my recent road trip to Idaho and the Quilt Show which was held in Montpelier, Idaho in The National Oregon/California Trail Centre. You can read more about the post here.

As promised I want to share with you both Countryboy and I’s photos from the show.

I think this was the first time I had been to a proper quilt show, and certainly the first time I had been to one in the US.

I have to say my favorite things to see were the antique quilts and of course the museum articles on display, though there were a number of contemporary quilts that caught my eye.

(Please click on the photos to enlarge).

I will start with Countyboy’s photos. 





This red and white antique quilt is from ca. 1930 and has been beautifully hand quilted. I studied this one and the other hand quilted quilts very carefully, so I could figure out how mine should look!

Now for my pictures…
