Cathy and I visited two quilt shows on Saturday.  The first was a tiny one in the Cairo library and the second was a larger one, pictured above, in a school in Windham. There were some lovely quilts on display, which always feeds our creativity. take-a-chance baskets Gift baskets, that are offered for chances, are always a good money maker for any non-profit, and this one had some interesting choices, including one that was full of fresh garden produce.  I didn’t buy any chances though, because I didn’t want to drive all the way back to Windham tomorrow if I won.

Fabric bags

One of the vendors had lots of small quilted items for sale at reasonable prices.

Pottery

The other vendors were not the typical quilt show kind of patterns, thread and fabric.  This vendor had pottery in all shapes, sizes and colors.

Baked goods

This bakery vendor had a wonderful display of goods that smelled heavenly. It took lots of will power not to purchase one of each.  Other sale tables included a goat milk soap and lotion vendor, local honey, two jewelers, Christmas decorations, and a cookie/candy vendor.

Vintage scene

There was also a display of vintage kitchen items where I drooled over a couple of bowls.

 This quilt show is all the more enjoyable because it’s so unusual.

Wooden flowers

After leaving the quilt show, we stopped for a piece of pizza, and then, closer to home, ice cream, but first we looked at these cool flowers in a local store’s yard.  Inside the store, were lots of antiques, and some crafty items, but the flowers outside were the best of the items for sale.

These two quilt shows kind of mark the beginning of the fall quilt show    “season”.  I have to go mark my calendar.
