Ellis County Quilt Show – 2016
The Ellis County Quilt Show in Midlothian, Texas was held on July 15 and 16 this year and it is the 2nd time I have attended. I am sure that this will be a show that I visit each and every year. In fact, my plan is to enter a quilt or two of my own next year!
Instead of inserting images of full quilts this time around, I took a bit more artistic approach with the images. I hope you like it!
For me, there are specific areas of the show that I just have to investigate: Sale area, vendor booths, raffle quilt, class entries and theme quilts.
I always find great bargains in the sale area. This year, I came home with some fat quarters and 5 books for my collection!
This year’s theme is: Red, White & Blue-tiful!
I will admit that the show’s theme entries truly lived up to this inspiration. Quilts on display in this category ranged from traditional to contemporary; however, at a most appropriate time in our country and world, the sentiment of national pride rang loud and clear!
The raffle quilt was indeed elegant and a perfect representation of the Red/White/Blue theme.
Other quilts that were on display can only be described by pictures – they were truly so beautiful and a joy to view:
Last but not least, we visited many booths of vendors and I even got my first Quilt Mug!
Various local shops were in attendance:
Our friends from Gray Rooster had lots of beautiful items for sale, including this new one!
As always, we had a great time and met lots of wonderful folks at the Ellis County Quilt Show. So, did you visit this show as well? What did you think?
