Quilt Show

In September I went to a quilt show at a local expo center.   Here's some of the beautiful works on display.  All photos are clickable for larger views.

 These individual hexagons were the size of a dime!



This was my favorite although it is very hard to pick just one.
 Here's a close up.


 Nothing but stitches created this design and texture.

Whimsy


 This one gave the appearance of painting or silk screening.   Not so.   See detail of jacket below.


Beautiful applique.

Variation on the log cabin




I want to someday do a quilt in blacks and whites with a splash of color.   Here they used gold in the inner border.   I think mine with have turquoise or red or lime green.



Tee-shirt quilt



Loved it

Loved it more.....my favorite colors

Yo-yo's

More applique - gorgeous  

 Love this color combo

Photos don't do these works justice.

Same quilt, different color combinations with batiks.

Some people are crazy talented (an must be retired!)

Another traditional applique quilt

Pieced quilt

I jump for joy at the feast for the eyes and senses.   

 This was the weekend trip earlier this fall that I used to get my mojo back when I had 
seemed to have lost it.  These were taken by my cell phone and I finally downloaded 
them to my downloaded them to my laptop.  Nothing like surrounding yourself with 
creativity to get your own creative spirit back in line.
