Dhahran Oasis Quilt Guild Show 2012 - Dhahran, Saudi Arabia (LONG POST-126 PICTURES)

Yesterday was the 2012 Quilt Show for the Dhahran Oasis Quilt Guild.  Being my first time attending their shows, I was impressed.  There was lots to look at, a Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) demonstration was going on as well as an applique demonstration.  On site there were Bernina machines and Bernina goodies from the local Bernina shoppe.  Zammal's craft & fabric shoppe was there as well with 200 of their newest bolts of fabric, mostly Batiks though..  Saudi Paws had a fundraising bake sale, see what we bought at the end of the post.  Saudi Paws does spaying/neutering, fostering, home placement, etc for the homeless cats & dogs in Saudi.

This post is LONG as there were many quilts at the show.  For the non-judged pieces displayed there were quilt tops & non-bound quilt sandwiches.  All kinds of techniques were shown.   LET'S GET STARTED!

THE ENTRANCE TO THE BUILDING.

SILENCE AUCTION QUILTS

RAFFLE QUILTS

THIS IS THE RAFFLE QUILT MY TWIN BOUGHT TICKETS FOR.  APPARENTLY WE DIDN'T WIN.

THIS QUILT HAD LOTS OF SWAROVSKY CRYSTALS AND BLING ON IT, THOUGH YOU CAN'T SEE IT.  IT WAS REALLY PRETTY.

  1. Wow! That's a lot of quilts, how fun! The quilt that you asked is known as twin sisters or sometimes a waterwheel. I found a beautiful old quilt at Goddwill done in this block, and became obsessed with finding out the name. :)
