Today, friend Ann and I went to the Oklahoma City Winter Quilt Show.  We saw all of the quilts and made our way through the vendors in less than an hour and a half.  Seems like it takes less time every year.  Are there fewer quilts every year, or is it my imagination? 

I don’t have a specific quilt project at the present and no plans in the works, so the vendors didn’t get rich off of me this year.  I bought a Clover White Marking Pen (fine), and some “Everything Balm”.  Woohoo! Big spender.

There were some great quilts and, “The Skrappy Ladies” own Cindy Squyres, had two quilts entered.  First off I took a picture of a quilt that I thought would interest Donna.  Since her dear son just gifted her with lots of Crown Royal bags, and wants a quilt made from them.  So for Donna, look here.

I don’t have the information about the maker of this quilt.

I want to apologize for the wonky pictures of the quilts.  It’s hard to get back far enough to include the whole quilt, and not include all of the other show attendees.

Then there are the two quilts made by Cindy Squyres.  She’s still a Skrappy Lady, even though she now resides in Tennessee.  I remember when she first started quilting, she would only work on one project at a time.  When she finished, then she would start on another.  We told her that we would soon break her of that habit.

I liked the way the bright colors “popped” against the navy and midnight blue.



I don’t have the information about the maker of this quilt.  I liked the use of the various blocks used in the making of this quilt.

Overall it was a good quilt show, it just seems that the shows are coming around so often that there aren’t enough quilts.
