Columbus Quilt Show

On Saturday I was able to go to the quilt show in Columbus with two of my friends.  We left super early because we live a couple of hours from Columbus.  The quilts were breath taking!  It is so inspiring to see these quilts and all the creativity in them!  There were over 400 quilts on display!  Here are a few of my favorites.
Best of Show first place winner
The quilting on this quilt and some others was truly amazing!
What a find!  We went to North Market for lunch.  It reminded me of a farmers market that I've been to in Philadelphia, but smaller.  They had lots of yummy things to eat and groceries, like specialty meats and cheeses and much more!  I wish that we lived closer so I could go more often!  Here is a photo of the four of us.
This is the yummy pasta I had for lunch.  The homemade pasta had an artichoke gorgonzola sauce served with bread and garlic and chive butter. 

From this booth we split a yummy strawberry ice cream sandwich.  It was surprisingly light and oh, so yummy!

He was so good all day!  All of the ladies had to pinch his legs and cheeks, but he was great through it all!

More beautiful quilts!

This one had sparkles all over it !

Believe it or not but these were all different appliqued pieces of fabric!

I love this one!
It was such a fun girls day out!  Now I am ready to quilt!  We ended our day with a trip to one of the best ice cream stores, Graeters!
We are already on planning to go back next year!  That was such a blast!
