Highlights from the Friendship Square Quilt Guild 2012 Quilt Show

A close-up of "Wolf Song", made by Barbara Kovar, quilted by Kathy Marsh, designed by Lisa Moore.

A couple weekends ago, I attended a local quilt guild show with my Mom and Aunt Betty (Mom's best friend since childhood) -- the bi-annual quilt show put on by the Friendship Square Quilt Guild, based out of La Habra, California.  This is one of two guilds to which Aunt Betty belongs.

The three of us had a wonderful late morning/early afternoon at the quilt show, followed by lunch.

This is a collection of my favorites from the show. All the quilts were beautiful, but I tend to favor outdoors, Americana, folk and Civil War quilt fabrics and patterns.

"A Peaceful Green Garden" made by the Silver Stitchers friendship group. One of the breast cancer research raffle quilts.
Halloween "Boo" quilt made by the Not So New Kids on the Block friendship group. Another breast cancer research raffle quit.
