The last weekend of September in Boise, Idaho finds us at the Boise Basin Quilters 2023 show. There were so many quilts to look at in the exhibition hall as well as a whole hall of vendors and demonstrations. A lot to see and do to fill your day.
This was the 40th annual quilt show and the theme was the “Ruby Jubilee” – so they had a special category of competition for red and white only quilts.
There were even some mini-red/white quilts.
I like seeing a lot of different ideas using traditional blocks – there was a lot of variety to see. I think these are good for inspiration when doing your own quilts.

Log cabin blocks

This looked like a drunkard’s path to me, but looking at it closely it’s just squares and rectangles.
This was a very interesting quilt as the quilter had made all the blocks but then chose not to sew them together but tie them together with ribbon instead – gives it a real interesting look
Then there were a whole lot of quilts that were just stunning in their own ways. Art quilts, kaleidoscope, sampler quilts, and applique.
Lastly, there can’t be a quilt show that doesn’t have some type of Holiday quilts – since I’m partial to Halloween I always need to post at least one.
I hope these images give you a little sense of what the Boise Basin Quilter’s quilt show was like and maybe some inspiration as you continue to work on your own quilts!
