Northland Needlers Quilt Show

We had a great time at the Northland Needlers show a few weeks ago.  You will be impressed - I actually took pictures!  They are low quality (I know you would expect no less of me!), but they are pictures.  I am having lots of computer troubles, so most of these pictures aren't edited and I'm having a hard time even getting them to load on here, so I apologize for that.

Here you can see our booth - the quilts from left to right are "Gathering Scraps" (the smaller version), "Dottie's Dashes", "Baskets in the Cabin", and "Size Does Matter".  You can see the small stained glass windows that Mom made - hanging in the hinged, wooden frame on the table.

 The quilts are "Size Does Matter" (again), "Ozzie's Baskets", and "Rally the Troops".  And there are the new socks.
 Here is a close up of Size Does Matter - the 9 patches finish at 1 1/2".  I hand quilted this one.

On the way to the show, I FINALLY sewed down the binding on this little quilt - about time, don't you think!?
 This stained glass piece was in a neighboring both - loved it.  He mainly sold featherweight machines.
Here are just a few quilts from the show.   This first quilt was so interesting - all about women't suffrage.  The pictures don't do it justice at all.

Well, it looks like Blogger is not going to let me add any more pictures, so I will end this blog post!'s killing me!

Have a great day!


  1. I am just enthralled with your booth...I would love to make every SINGLE ONE of those glorious quilts!!! Amazing!

  2. Your booth is beautiful, Julie! I can't get over those little 9-patches and all of that hand quilting! Speaking of which, you put a lot of quilting into your "Old Glory Gatherings", too!
    Your quilts look wonderful in the booth, and I love your method of displaying your jewelry. The stained glass looks very fun. Curious how the colorful socks went over.
    Happy to see the photos! Good girl!! : )

  3. As always your booth looks full of inspirational ideas!

    Thanks for sharing all those beautiful quilts!!


  4. I love 9 patch quilts and that one is amazing but I'm afraid the smallest ones I'll be making are 3 inch ones!

  5. Amazing! Beautiful work!

  6. You should take your hubby with you more often, Julie - you got a chance to get photos! Your booth looks amazing, as do all those gorgeous quilts! Guess what - I found a seller of your wonderful socks right here in town and got a pair yesterday!

  7. What a beautiful booth! Filled with eye candy. Do people stare in wonderment - where to start shopping? Love that you have so e hand quilted samples, so few do. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Technology is killing me too...apparently I had 3 bloglovin accounts and they all had different lists. I couln't comment from my phone and some blogs weren't showing up on my laptop. Hmm, surely it's user error, but dang I'm confused!
    Really enjoyed all the photos of the show, thanks for sharing!
