If you are or will be in the area, this quilt show goes until September 1 and is wonderful. There are lots of quilts (maybe around 80?) and there is a good mix of traditional and more modern/contemporary quilts.
Here's my quilt, up on the wall. I was amazed at how... small it looked in a room full of bigger quilts.
Some other quilts from the show:
This one won an award for machine quilting:
This was just amazing.
I had to take a picture of this quilt because it's made using the same pattern book I used for my niece's Noah's Ark quilt.
I liked the black and white with the colors in this one.
Best in Show.
Signature wedding quilt. Pretty colors!
This was a fun one.
30's double wedding ring quilt.
Another award winner. The kids and nine-patches look like the ones from the book Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!! : The Complete Guide to Quiltmaking. The quilting on this was so beautiful, and the kids are all embellished with trims and shiny things. And there are sparkles all over the quilt. I really like the rainbow-y stars in the corners, too.
I have one more quilting-related vacation post to share and then will get back to posting about my current projects and stuff. I am having a bit of a revelation this week, and it's about focus. More on that later!
