Quilt Show

When Debbie (Stitchin' Therapy) heard where Cori was moving she mentioned that they had a quilt show there and as luck would have it the show was just about the time I would be up there, I stayed extra so I could go :) When I got back and told Debbie I had gone she asked me how overwhelmed I had felt, overwhelmed doesn't even come close, I was awestruck seeing these amazing quilts in person. Here's some of the pictures I took, all blurs, crooked pictures and weird cropping are the fault of the photographer who doesn't usually use her phone as a camera. 



The cats in this one were all thread painting. 


I saw this one in person and still can't understand how it's a quilt.


This one because of the FMQ.

This quilt was huge and the cats were all applique. 



This one literally made me gasp.

I was looking at this one closely when one of the white glove ladies came up and asked if I wanted a closer look, she showed me how it's all tiny curved log cabins. I told her I loved this one, it was so cute and she told me it was her quilt and I had made her day!







So nice to see this one is person, I've seen it many times online and considered making it, but it's a lot of paper piecing. 

I also played on two longarms, which really makes me want one, but David refuses to add a room to the house so I can fit it in. I bought some fabric, but not much, the vendors section was so crowded and I much preferred to get back to the quilts.

So that's it, I've finally joined the ranks of Quilt Show Sharers, LOL. Can't wait for the next one.

Later Gators,
Dana

  2. Wow. What an amazing quilt show. I guess you'll have to ALWAYS go visit during Cori when the show is going on.

    Thanks for sharing. I loved all the quilts, but those cats with threadpainting is amazing.

  4. Thanks for showing these......some are just over the top! The cats, thread painted and appliqued are so beautiful. The flamingo quilt says Florida for sure, and those tiny seahorses say YOU!
    When I see work like these, I remember why I don't enter shows, but really enjoy the viewing.

  5. That looks like a really great quilt show Dana. I love it when there is a lot of variety and many different styles. No matter how small a show, there is always something inspiring. Glad you had so much fun!
