A Quilt Show – Patchwork in the Pines 2011 – Traverse City, MI


It's always a wonderful day when you can go to a quilt show! Yesterday was that kind of a day for me. Not so much for Clutch, he had to stay home but that's another story.
Every three years the Rumpled Quilts Kin quilt guild puts on their Patchwork in the Pines quilt show in Traverse City, Michigan. I've watched it grow over the years and always look forward to it. The show moved to a larger location this year and was held at the Traverse City East Middle School. There were 292 quilts in the show along with lots of other fiber arts. I didn't photograph every quilt but tried to get quite a few. It was busy! I hope you enjoy the Smilebox slideshow I made and I'll share my treasures from the merchant's mall later. If you have time, click on the Patchwork in the Pines text in the paragraph above - there's a very nice video by TV 9&10 News telling about the show, quilting and one of the guild's founding members.

    Love the quilt show photos. My favorites are the Edyta appliques. I have the patterns but just can’t recall the names. The Dear Jane was interesting. The Papa’s Star had a 4 patch center? and there were no pieced triangles in the border but instead there were twice as many solid triangles. I also love all of the hexagon quilts. There was a neat one with hexagon flowers in baskets. I am still fascinated by those One Block Wonder quilts and the fabrics the quilts start with and may have to make one someday.

    Can you tell me about the Rumpled Quilts-Kin Retreat in Traverse City next March?
    I believe Bonnie Hunter will be there.
    Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,

    I’ve been doing my best to get info on the Bonnie Hunter event but can’t seem to connect with the right person. I’ll try to contact Bonnie and see what she can tell me. I used to belong to that guild several years ago and will see if I can ask one of their members when I have more time in Traverse City during July. Sorry I can’t tell you more but wanted you to know I haven’t forgotten about you. I’ll post whatever I find out here in the comments.
