Georgetown Quilt Show - Love is a Quilt

Hello Everyone,

This is my last round of pictures from the quilt show in Georgetown.  It was hard to whittle the 125 pictures down to a manageable amount.

This is Madrigal.  Oh how I love to see my patterns made by other quilters.

Love the quilting!

Pictures just don't do justice to the incredible amount of details in the quilts.

The trucks were the Fire Chief's Choice this year.  Talk about detail!  Amazing.

They start them young in Georgetown.  This is Casey's first quilt.....she is 5!

Morgan is 8!  Both girls have a great sense of color.  You girls rock too!

I'm finishing off this post with a Christmas exchange quilt made by Lynda for Fely.  Yes, Love is a Quilt.  You could see the love throughout the whole park.  Not only in the quilts, but in the genuine feelings the Needle Nellies had for the each other and the warm hugs and attention extended to Gail and me.

My sister and I had a fabulous time at your show.  We adore all of the Needle Nellies, and look forward to seeing you again over a large plate of Wiener Schnitzel! Thank you again for everything!




  1. Dear Lynn, Thank you for the wonderful photos of our show and the rave reviews. It warms the heart! Speaking for all the Nellies, we loved having you and Gail with all your beautiful patterns and quilts. We look forward to seeing you here soon and having wiener schnitzel together. Such a wonderful blog that I am emailing it to everyone I know.
    Cheers! Marina

    1. Thank you Marina! Gail and I enjoyed every minute with you Nellies! --Lynn

  2. What a lovely quilt show.....kudos to the Needle Nellies.......such a great show and only 15 ladies to plan and put together.....WOW

    I don't know who did the 3 trucks, but what beautiful quilts......actually pieces of art...

    1. The trucks were made by Needle Nellie Candy. Pictures just don't capture the incredible details in them. --Lynn

  3. Thank you so much for sharing these with us! The quilts are amazing! Your Madrigal pattern is amazing and the quilter did a beautiful job! It must be a trip to see quilts made from your pattern. That's so cool! Thanks again!

  4. Beautiful quilts, for sure. I'm glad I'm not the Fire Chief:)

  5. We loved the trucks too! We stood there staring at them trying to sort out the technique. Completely beautiful tribute to those well worn old trucks and so appropriate and deserving of the Fire Chiefs award. Amszing talent Miss Candy Nellie!

  6. Thank you for sharing the photos from this quiltshow. The truck quilts are amazing!
