On The Road Again

Three Little S'mores went to Owensboro on Friday.   We met four more there.

"Who are the S'mores?", you ask.  In some areas you might call us a bee.  We are 20 strong.  Sisters I never had, BFFs, sewing assistants, and critical supporters.

"Why are you called S'mores?", you inquire.  Because when we're together we want to sew s'more, laugh s'more, eat s'more, and buy s'more fabric.

"Why Owensboro?", you ask yet again.  Because three of our S'mores live in northern Kentucky and southern Indiana. They belong to the Owensboro Area Quilt Guild and their biannual quilt show started Friday and continued through Saturday.

OAQG Show 2014
For a guild show it was very professionally presented.  The area on the bottom left was for lectures and demonstrations.  Bottom right and right aisle were a nice variety of vendors.  And at least 350 quilts were hanging.  Including two of mine!!

Fall Color Cruise (a/k/a BQ)

Rock Island, Rock On (a/k/a Rock Island Campfires)
And quilts by other S'mores.

Celtic Solstice in CW colors by Lisa B

Bright Stars by Sharon B

Africa by Deanna K
There were others by Lisa and Deanna, as well.  Sorry, Rita, I forgot to get a picture of yours ;-(

Mr. Whittle was vending.  I shopped with the sole purpose of getting a back for French Braid.  So I came home with 3 yards of 108" backing fabric to add to my stash report.  I also bought a spool of Aurifil at a great price from another vendor.

All-in-all, it was a lovely day with lovely friends.

Stash report this week:
     In this Week:            9.0 yards
     In year to Date:      166.25 yards
     Out this Week:           0.0 yards (.5 binding, 2.5 give-away)
     Out Year-to-Date:    130 yards
     Net Used 2014      -36.25 yards

See how others measure up at Patchwork Times.


  1. Love the name choice of "S'mores" ! And beautiful quilts! All are fantastic, but I'm drawn to Rock Island and Material Girls - though I don't do much 'brights' myself, and of course, having done Celtic Solstice myself in BKH's colorway - this one shown is right up my alley - love the colors. Thank you for sharing.

    1. When Lisa was working on Celtic Solstice at our Christmas retreat, I silently questioned her choice of fabrics. She wasn't even sure she like it. But the finished product is so stunning -- and HUGE.

  2. I wanted to go to that show but it just didn't work out this year. Hopefully next year! Looks like you had a wonderful time :)

    1. The new venue was super. It was an easy one-day outing.

  3. LOVE the name of your group, what fun you must have had. Beautiful pictures.

  4. Libby, thanks for sharing your adventure. I may have to add this show to a future travel calendar! Love your group's name!
