August is not a typical choice for quilt shows, but it worked out really well for five of our members. Summer is a wonderful time to travel and experience holidays with your friends. We loaded up our weekender suitcases and headed down the highway to Caledonia, NY for a quilt show by our adopted sister guild. They refer to themselves as the Caledonia Guild, NY Office. Ha ha - too cute.
Caledonia, NY is a very old, very pretty town. I was joking that I think the Stepford Wives must live there - it was so clean and tidy. The quilt show was in a beautiful school where the guild had quilts hung in two gymnasiums. Lots of quilts. A surprising number of quilts for a small guild.
This is a wee selection of the quilts I thought looked nice and scrappy (in honour of OUR new Scrappy Club).
We stayed at the Genesee Country Inn - a beautiful bed & breakfast that is a former mill. The bedrooms were pretty but not fussy, and each boasted a private bathroom. The beds were super comfy and breakfast was delicious - lasting for a couple of hours, relaxing over coffee. The owners were friendly and chatty, making us feel really welcome.
