west trip #3: Truckee Meadows Quilter's Show in Reno

my posts are completely out of order, but it's all good!
dory, kristina, and i drove into reno on sunday to go to the Truckee Meadows Quilt Guild show. after the show we said our goodbyes to Kristina and she drove back across nevada to home....*wave*

the show forum was the car museum owned by harrah's casino....a neat and unusal place for a quilt show. i guess the quilt husbands had something to look at too...

this was a mini that had beading around all the circles...

notice the clothespin holding the entry number? that is where you were allowed to 'touch' the quilt and flip it over to look at the back....very smart!

the colors in this one caught my eye

davis likes wolves, so i snapped this on for him...

there were ALOT of loverly applique quilts that i drooled all over....

i took notes of the patern designers and will be tracking down patterns/books....

i like the piecing around the applique center

this is a favorite, designed by Ellen Heck. i love the little details hidden it.


then i saw this one that i thought would be perfect for my current obsession- bashing the stash!

i bought lots of goodies from the vendors and all my goodies will have their own posts....

*grin* i found doodlebug fabric!


  1. Great quilts. I love the clothespin idea.

  2. the stash buster in the last pic has been on my list of "i really should make this" for a few months now. too bad, i've been in the mood to finish ufos first so it will have to wait...

    I'm thinking that the clothes pin idea is a great one. No need for those sweaty little gloves! Great idea for a stash basher too, love the colours.
