It was a nice show. It was held in the Senior Center, and it used every room in that building. The quilts, as usual, were beautiful. See the pictures of some below. The people there were wonderful, and there were great vendors. Many of them were different than we were used to seeing, which is always fun. There was one vendor that had fat quarters for 25 cents a piece! Yes, 25 cents! So I bought a lot. I have been working on a couple of applique quilts that needed springtime, bright and cheery colors, which were in there. I think Elisa bought twice as many. You can never have too many fat quarters, especially if you are an appliquer.
Marjan Kluepfel was their guest artist. She, personally, was not there, but she had a whole room dedicated to her quilts. She is remarkable in what she does. I especially love how she did some of the 3-D work on her quilts. There is an undersea quilt that looks like she captured the seaweed and put it on her quilt. Great work.
Here are the pictures I took:
|This quilt was unbelieveable! It is Mother Teresa done in fabric and just stunning in its scope.|
|The next few are from the featured artist, Marjan Kluepfel. I love cityscapes. Her featured quilts were wall quilts and this one was one of the smaller ones. It really caught my attention, though.|
|When I mentioned the featured artist above, I stated there was one with 3-D seaweed and plants on it that was stunning. This is it. |
A photograph does not do it justice.
|Love Christmas quilts. I especially loved this one with all its different blocks depicting Christmas. |
|Being March, there were not too many Halloween quilts. This one was extremely cute, and I figured it would be my token Halloween quilt that I always post.|
|Then I saw this quilt. This is not necessarily Halloween - just fall. It is so cute. I especially like how they used different backgrounds on each block and quilted it with stitching running through the blocks.|
|This is a version of the Mexican Star pattern. |
In our store a teacher taught this class. It was really popular. Recently I had a customer call to see if I still had a pattern to sell her. I did not, but I ordered them. So if you are interested in doing a quilt like this check out the pattern at http://www.beehivequilts.com/mexicanstars, if you are interested.
This particular quilt took best in show. If you saw it personally you would know why.
|This is an unique applique that I loved. See the next picture for more explanation as to why.|
