Tri-ed and True in Tri-County

2012 Tri-County Quilt Guild Show Opener

Good morning everybody!

The Peeps and I enjoyed another fantastic adventure this past weekend at the Tri-County Quilt Guild Show. This delightful show is put on by the members of the Tri-County Quilt Guild. I can honestly say that the day was fabulousness from start to finish. The weather was glorious, the companionship unequaled and the venue superb. It was definitely a day to remember.

While reveling in the beauty that was on display, I ran into several near and dear friends at the show. This is always an added treat to any quilt show and Peep supported adventure.

It’s a good thing that I was a boy scout in a past life, because I remembered to pack extra hugs for the trip. The extras came in pretty darn handy the first hour or two that I was there. (Hi Karen!, Hi DeNiece! Hi Diane!, Hi Lisa!, Hi Trish!, Hi Carla!, Hi Jackie!) Life is good.

Okay, now where was I? 

Oh yeah . . . I was getting ready to tell you about the photos.

Well it has taken a while, but I have finally gotten all the photos prepped and ready for you to see. I ran into a few technical issues as I was shooting, so I will apologize in advance for the blurry images. The lighting at the venue was great for looking at quilts, but not so great for taking photographs of them. I know there is a setting on the camera to remedy these issues, but I’m not as advanced as the Magic Camera would like me to be.

Oh well, I tried my best and the more I do the better I get. So, in another three to five years you’ll be amazed and astounded by my ability to capture the beauty before me. Until then, we’ll all have to deal with a little bit of blurry from time to time.

I know you are anxious to see the quilts and I’m excited to show them to you. You can get to the album by clicking on the photo above or by clicking here. Enjoy!

      Hi Delia, I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. There were a lot of wonderful quilts and the venue was fantastic for showing them off. As usual, the Tri-County Guild did a superb job.

      Now all we have to do is wait patiently for another two years for the next one.

      Hi Dee Ann, I appreciate the compliment, but I feel I have a lot left to learn. The experience of photographing quilts is always eye-opening, in some good and surprising ways. I am thankful that you enjoyed my efforts.

  4. Diane in Texas Says:

    Awesome photos, Tom! It was a pleasure (as always) to see you!

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hey Diane! It was wonderful to see you at the show. You are always such a joy to visit with. Your quilting was extraordinary and it brought me great joy to see it.

      It’s so good to see you quilting again.

      I have a question. Do you happen to know who won my Raffle Quilt? I know it wasn’t you, because you didn’t put your name on any of the tickets.

      I’m just curious. 🙂

    Holy cow! Thank you so much for this online quilt “show” … great pictures of fabulous quilts!

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Well, hi there! So nice of you to drop by. I’m glad that you enjoyed the show. It was a blast to be there and was surprised at how many photos I took. Having a great venue makes it easier to appreciate the quilts and this was a fantastic place to see quilts displayed.

      Thanks for taking the time to look at my/their show!

  6. Deb Says:

    Thanks for all the great pictures, Tom. I wasn’t able to get to the show last weekend, so I really do appreciate you bringing all the beautiful quilts right into my home. They are all beautiful and very inspirational.

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Deb, I’m glad you enjoyed the show. Plan to be here around this time of year in 2014 and you can see the quilts firsthand. The photos are nice, but there is nothing like seeing them in person.

      Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful day!

  7. Barbara (co-chair of show) Says:

    Tom, Thanks so much for your kind words and for photographing our quilt show. Your photographs were great and I sent this link on to the person who won Best of Show, as she was in the hospital during the show.

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Barbara, You are most welcome. It was a wonderful show and I had a blast being there. Tri-County is a an amazing and talented guild. It was a pleasure to show the work to my readers.

      Thanks for putting on such a great show. My readers and I enjoyed it.

      Have a wonderful day!

  8. Carla Says:

    Great pictures Tom. I did a lot of editing on my pictures too. Hopefully I’ll be able to remedy that next year. You got some great shots.

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Carla, Thanks! I appreciate the compliment. I believe that between the two of us, we’ll figure out the lighting issues and not have to work so hard on the backend next year. As always, thanks for dropping by. I love hearing from you.
