Warning! This is a very picture-heavy post!!!
There were some absolutely GORGEOUS quilts in this show. I'm sharing a few of my favorites. It was a smaller show compared to some of the AQS and International shows, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to go again regularly :*)
I posted about this quilt - my favorite - in an earlier post HERE.
|Circle of Curiosity by Anne B.G. Armour|
You can click on the link to see more closeups and details of this wonderful quilt.
Here are the other photos I took, in no particular order. I was a very bad girl in that I neglected to get the names of the quilters for most of them. I hope you enjoy!
|Talk about pineapples!!! Wow!!!|
|Interesting quilting motif here....|
|I loved the scrappiness of this row quilt! It was much brighter and very colorful :*)|
|Now this quilting took time! But it was very effective. |
I like how the quilter split some of the squares up diagonally.
(Sorry, no pictures of the actual quilt - apparently I just loved the quilting LOL)
|Gorgeous quilting - and those birds in the corner are machine embroidered!|
|Paula Nadelstern's Caribbean Blues. There was a special display of some of her quilts - YUM!!!|
One of my classes was with Paula and I'll be sharing more about her later :*)
|I have this one ear-marked to make one day from the AQS Magazine|
|I just LOVE mandalas!!!|
|My camera does not do this quilt justice!!! It was simply GORGEOUS!!!!|
|The quilting on it was just as gorgeous!|
|Can you see the shape of the edge? Just one more special touch :*D|
|Lots of couching with metallic threads :*)|
|Very visual impact - and this was in the Teen Quilt section! |
Can you see the musical symbols quilted into the black area?
|This looks like a fairly simple art quilt from a distance, but......|
|Move in a little closer and you begin to see all the details quilted into it!|
Can you see the hummingbirds?
|How about here? This was absolutely beautifully quilted!|
|This quilt hung in the lobby of the Convention Center|
|The details were amazing!!!|
|This one is for all of us strip lovers!!! It was ablaze with color... I loved it!!!|
|Botanical Fantasy by Lorilynn King|
|What can I say? Words can't begin to describe this masterpiece!!!|
|These next ones are for my fellow cat lovers!!!|
(You may notice that I never got a photo of the complete quilt - just the kitties LOL!!!)
And finally, I saw this lady standing in line next to me to have our scissors sharpened. Her necklace just fascinated me, so I asked if I could take a picture to share with you all. Isn't it FUN????
I hope you enjoyed the Show!
I still have to share the classes I took, as well as a few fun things I encountered during my travels,
so stay tuned =^..^=
Hugs & Blessings!
