Since I have no finished quilt of my own to show you, I thought I'd share with you a few highlights of my visit to the Quilt Festival today. My sister in law was kind enough to go with me.
Rounding the corner near the middle of the convention center we came upon this woman sitting calmly hand quilting.
Looking closer we noticed that she was part of the exhibit! Isn't she amazing.
There was a big display of art dolls, or as the sign proclaimed - All Dolls Are Art.
Aren't they gorgeous?
Or how about a Moo-dern quilt? Made me laugh.
This was one of the Hoffman Challenge quilts. There were a lot of really impressive ones on display, but this one caught my eye.
And this, as you can see from the signboard below is the original quite old quilt on the bottom which is the inspiration for the new model above it.
I don't have information for this one, but it looked so architectural to me.
And this one just made me think of all the jigsaw puzzles I've helped put together over the years, and of the paint-by-number kits! Isn't it pretty!
Miss Ru had to go back in the hospital yesterday. Not a fun time, but necessary just the same. Her biggest concern? That her kitten would get so much bigger while she is gone! Funny girl. How I love her.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend and seeing lots to inspire you!
Hugs and kisses,
