Somers Quilt Show 2012 Dazzles With Color

May 22, 2012

I had an exquisite excursion into Westchester several weeks ago, complete with Connecticut friends, my Mom, and a burly, greasy waiter in a dark restaurant.

Here is an assortment of the colorful, intricate, breathtaking quilts we saw. Some are traditional, some innovative, some plain wacky.


The Somers quilt show is an annual gathering of quilt enthusiasts, and their creations, in a high school in Somers, New York.

I really wanted to have a photo taken with my mom, but we were so overwhelmed with the incredible amount and variety of beautiful quilts filling the gymnasium and the halls of John F. Kennedy High School in Somers, NY, that we did not even have a chance until we walked out of the show…almost. At the entryway to the show, a vendor was showcasing gorgeous quilts, like the one in the photo below, for sale. When he overheard our conversation he generously offered to allow us to take a picture in front of his quilt, which you see below (along with the “no photography please” sign.)

This vendor is Richard Fries of the Bellwether Dry Goods Company. I loved his quilts.

The quilt pictured above is one of my favorites from the show. It reminds me of a beautifully illustrated children’s book.

Update: The quilt show is actually called the Northern Star Quilt Show. Thanks Mom!
