Quilt Festival in Trenton Florida

I've always been intrigued  by outdoor quilt shows, they seem so risky when the weather could cause a complete disaster.

But this little town of Trenton fearlessly chugged ahead and the weather for this years show was perfect, blue skies and no hint of rain in the forecast.

Since we had been forewarned that parking could be difficult, we parked the car at the school nearby and biked into the event.

Shortly after arriving, Left Brain took off in the opposite direction for a long ride and return home and I headed into town.

There were quilts hung everywhere - on lines, on the sides of buildings, inside of buildings, on the name it and they were there.

The street was closed down for all the vendors to set up with their arts and crafts, food items and the such.

Long Live the Queen of Quilt Festivals


  1. Great hats too. So did you go buy more fabric dearest Queen of Fabric?

  2. This is beautiful! I love quilts, and need some new ones. I am not crafty enough to make them, sadly.

  3. I admire anyone who has the patience to make a quilt. I made a small child size one with my Granddaughter years ago and it was really a struggle ... though I have to say it turned out really cute and GD learned a lot about sewing with that project. I have never attempted a full size quilt and am fairly certain that I never will. But, I do love them and am often amazed at the talent displayed in many of them. These are beautiful, QJ. Did you buy one for the cats, Queen of Cat Ladies?

  4. Oh my, these are beautiful. One of these days I might try my hand at making a quilt. Walking through this place would have me running right to the nearest fabric shop. How did you resist? Or did you? lol. Have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
