Quilting around Chautauqua Part I, minis and picture quilts

     Every year for 11 years, Judy Fenton of Millcreek Sewing has organized Quilting around Chautauqua, a quilting show and vendors on the grounds of the Chautauqua Institute. I have never gone before. Two guild friends invited me on Sunday and I had a wonderful time. The weather was September spectacular. 
    I took a lot of photos, but I had my small Canon point and shoot because the SLR would be too heavy to lug all across the Institute so I apologize for not real clear photos. First, I am showing a bunch of miniature quilts that were made by a guild from Warren, PA. They are less than 12". I marveled. It is hard to see the scale in the photos. I stuck my finger in one of the photos to give you and idea. The pins may show some idea also. They also had a pincushion challenge, and I really wanted to bring my choice home to my studio. It made me laugh.

     There were a couple of pictoral quilts that were outstanding to me.

"Male Bonding" gets my vote - very humorous and clever ...and SO true. Send us more from the show if you can.

I did a Part 2. These photos are only a small amount of what I took. I would love to show my quilts here!
