I’m the featured quilter over at MQR. Looky, looky!
Oh, and Oskar got fixed. He is doing great and growing entirely too fast.
The shark had the cutest teeth. The balloons used were only partially inflated so they looked sharp. Don’t you love the creativity and joy the balloon artists used?
Of course there were quilts. Dozens of quilts. I’ve included some photos here of my client’s quilts and some of my friends quilts.
Some of the ribbon winners for longarm quilting were for all over, edge to edge designs not the custom work you typically see. A few drop dead gorgeous quilts were disqualified because they were in the wrong division. I wish they double checked the quilts as they get checked in and shuffle those that aren’t in the correct division to the proper group so they could be judged properly.
There were more landscapes and art quilts this year. I like this little pelican. He won a blue ribbon!
Oh, and I really like looking at the Bulls with those rings in their noses. The ones I was looking at seemed so docile. Almost like a big dog. A very BIG dog.
There were non quilting things that were inspiring and quilty at the same time.
My cousin, Susan had a few entries in the photography division and she made a tote.
I enjoyed this chicken cake I just don’t know how you’d eat it.
The button princess was fun. look at ll of those white buttons on her dress. Wouldn’t it be fun to make an actual dress that way? It would weigh 80+ pounds!
Okay, more fair inspiration in my next post. I’ve had a lot of client quilts finished lately but I haven’t had time to get them up on the blog. Getting through the first few weeks of middle school has sapped my focus right now. But don’t worry- I’ll be posting them ASAP! 🙂
