Taking a second look at an artsy quilt

I just noticed that some of the photos I’ve posted aren’t big enough for you to really see the detail. I’ll make these photos bigger got you as the details are the WOW factor. This one is a quilt I initially walked past. Quilts with faces in them make me uncomfortable. I’m not sure why […]

Beautiful Lorrie

My son, BirdMan, is really into birds. He has loved feathered friends since before he could talk. In fact, he can identify a large number of birds from all over the world with ease. This quilted bird would be his favorite from the Houston Quilt Festival. I really enjoyed the quilting! It was done on […]

Quilted Yurt

I think this was my favorite thing at Houston. It is a quilted yurt! In the vendor area there was patterns you could purchase for small fairy houses. But this was a human sized fairy house. It had quilt panels throughout the interior made by a variety of Longarm quilters. You could even sit on […]

Marilyn Badger is the bomb

Have it told you I want to have a tiny portion of the talent Marilyn Badger possesses? This one got the Blue ribbon for Merit Machine Quilting at the Houston quilt festival. *sigh*

Cincinnati Quilt Festival 2012 Part 2

There was a large section of quilts that didn’t allow photography so you’ll just have to trust me that there were some phenomenal pieces of art haning at the Quilt Festival in Cincinnati. If you have a chance to go to the show next year, please do. You’ll love all the vendors and the stunning […]

Cincinnati Quilt Festival Part 1

The Cincinnati Quilt Festival is one of my favorite shows. The venu is wonderful and spacious. The quilts are stunning and the vendors are great. I wentaround to the quilts and took photos of the ones that spoke to me.  I thought I’d share a few with you.   This striking quilt is called Funky […]

Lancaster, PA Quilt Show Part 2

I always find it interesting that each quilt show seems to have its own voice. At the AQS show in Lancaster you see a lot of hand quilting masterpieces. The most impressive of these are the hand applique, hand quilted creations. You just know you are looking at years of work. Years of dedication and […]

Lancaster, PA Quilt Show

  I spent last week in Lancaster, PA for the AQS quilt show. We set up the APQS longarm machines and got Intelliquilter all ready first then we hit the town and surrounding areas to do a little shopping. That’s where I ran into this little doggie in his stroller. I had heard a lot […]
