Quilters Can be Such Characters!

Rainbow the Clown was on hand to greet quilt show visitors at a recent show put on by the Belleview Busy Bee Quilters in Florida. Their show was appropriately titled "A Rainbow of Quilts". Her blue hair blended perfectly with Mary Ralph's stunning large pieced Cosmos.

Guild member Liz donned her "busy bee" outfit, complete with "deely bobbers" on her head, to work the show. In the photo you can also get a glimpse of the beautiful opportunity quilt made by guild members.


This scrappy and colorful quilt made in the Flat Iron design was one of the entries. And the Tea Leaf quilt below is beautifully hand quilted by Sue Woody Zoeffel. The tiny, regular stitches look lovely against the white background fabric. There's always a lot to see and enjoy at a quilt show! So inspiring, I always feel as if I need to head right home and get sewing.
