Quilt Show at Stephen C. Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

   Yesterday my daughter and I drove over to White Springs, Florida to the Stephen C. Foster Folk Culture Center State Park to view the local quilt show.  We packed a picnic and a picnic quilt and we were off.  It was a beautiful day in North Florida.

   This park is located on the banks of the Suwannee River and it is named for the songwriter Stephen C. Foster.  Here is a link to the park website:  Stephen C. Foster Folk and Culture Center State Park Link.  There is a 97 bell carillon in this park that chimes on the hour, quarter hour and half hour.  It also plays Stephen Foster songs.  It's one of the highlights of the park.  Here is a picture of the tower I took yesterday.  That sky couldn't have been more blue.

    The Suwannee River yesterday afternoon:

   There was a display of quilts made by Kaffe Fassett in one building that was fun to see.  So much color.

   Here are some of the pretty quilts I saw yesterday that were competing for best in show.  The judging is done by the attendees with ballots filled out walking through the show.  I would have had a hard time finding best in show yesterday.
