Quilt Festival Pix

Hello Pteceful Quilters,

I know that not all of you were able to come and visit us at Quilt Festival, so I thought I would share a few pictures and some of the fun! We really had a fabulous time this year - getting a double booth was definitely worth it. It was so great to see so many familiar faces and meet a lot of new friends. It was a wonderful show, and we are really going to miss it when it moves to Cincinati next year. What a bummer! At least we will still have Madison!

Anyway, here are a few pictures of our booth. Demi and Katie did a super job putting it together in record time. I tried to help, but they never like my ideas, so I just let them have at it. Obviously, their ideas worked!

Yes, this is me, with a FAMOUS Person - Kay Capps Cross, the one who wrote those Black & White books. We don't always agree on fabric choices, but I have brought her to the dark side for at least one quilt. She said she has a "Dark & Dirty" quilt in her next book. I can't wait!
One of her books: A couple of local quilters had quilts in the show:
Madelyn Anderson's Civil War Sampler

Shar Snellman's Dear Jane Quilt
I am sure there were some others, I just didn't have time to see the entire show. As you may have guessed, I had to see the Antique and Traditional style quilts first. Here are a few of my favorites.
This was a one made with a hankerchief in the center. What a amazing historical quilt!

Here is a close up of the center:This beauty is made entirely of hexagons:
This wonderful antique quilt has some pieced parts and some applique. It is one of those quilts that you can sit and stare at for hours.

What is it about a quilt with an Eagle on it that attracts us?

Coxcomb quilts are so appealing, too.
Watch for a variation on this one coming soon to your favorite quilt shop!
The vendors at the show had some really wonderful stuff, too. I bought a few things, and got a lot of ideas for things to do in the shop. I can't wait to get started on some of the new projects I have been thinking about!
I hope to see you all soon!
