This year we had the great pleasure of attending Star Quilters Guild annual Quilt Show! Immediately walking in we were dazzled by the warm and inviting atmosphere. The best part was meeting some of the outstanding artist’s who made these amazing quilts. Some of the stories made the quilts feel even more alive. Everywhere you looked there were gorgeous works of art. Needless to say we defiantly had a blast.

This traditional quilt was made by Judy Coffman and quilted by Laura Credle from Star City Stitchery. The quilt designs on this work of art speak for itself. I loved how she used red and white fabric for contrasting colors. It made the quilting designs pop out even more giving it that “classic” look.


We had a great time interacting with the artists and meeting new people at the quilt show. The members from the Star Quilters Guild were very informative and helpful. They defiantly made this experience a positive one. We’re lucky to have attended such a beautiful display of quilting art at its finest.
