NOT YOUR MAMA'S QUILT SHOW ~ ~ ~
This one had lots of embellishment and heavy wool applique ~ if you click on the pictures to enlarge them, you'll be able to see the scope of their work. There were several wool booths there ~ beautifully presented. I've done shows for years and these were the top of the top, in my opinion!
Loved this Andy Warhol style of quilting ~ it looks like a painting, doesn't it?
I loved this black and white cityscape-type of quilt ~ it had lots of sparkly on it ~ and you know how I love my sparkles!
We shopped all the vendors on Thursday night and Friday morning, we toured the quilt show. I had to be back home in the afternoon because I had my class the next morning! But, we found we were right on target in doing the Thursday night thing because the next morning, the show was crawling with thousands of people! I didn't buy a lot ~ some Pro-Chem dye, which I've been wanting to try ~ some sari ribbon like we used in blog challenge # 2 (which I'll package into smaller bits to sell) and just some odds and ends of things. I got some good ideas and saw some things that sparked some good ideas. I'm going to be making some funky flower pins ~ wish I could get some done for Saturday's show! Going to make a cute apron to wear for shows ~ it was such an inspiring place to be. If you are a quilter, it would be like going to fabric heaven!!!!!!!!!!!! It will be in Cinci again next year ~ I have it on the calendar already ~ April 12 - 15th! Friend Donna met us down there, too ~ and we just all had a spectacular time!!
There are more pix for another posting ~ I'm washing wool that came in this week ~ packing for the Gathered Treasures show Saturday, here at the fairgrounds ~ and I'm on my way out the door to breakfast with friends!! No wonder I don't get anything accomplished ~ but if you know me, you know I love my friends!! Have a great day ~ Spring has sprung!!
