This one is titled "Kimmie's Dragonfly" by Vel Garrick. She make it for her friend Kimmie, who collects dragonflies. She's done a mosaic applique and watercolor quilting techniques (not sure exactly what that means, but it's what the description stated) to blend colors and it is longarm quilted.
Here is a closer look at a portion of it. The artistry is amazing and I love how all those unrelated fabrics blend so beautifully to form the big picture.
There was a display of miniature vignettes. Lots of them. I liked the 1950's travel trailer.
We both knew immediately how much Miss Ru would have loved this one, titled "Like Cinderella"! She did love her shoes. The maker of this one, Yukiko Maruhama, lives in Japan and it is all hand pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted.
On Friday I went back with a couple of friends and did more walking. This one is called "Ablaze" by Helena Sheffer. Of course I like all those reds playing together!
This one, entitled "What Happens in the Swamp?" by Christine Holden, just made me laugh. If you can't see why - click on the picture and it should enlarge. I would say that egret has a rather precarious perch!
I know this doesn't look exciting at all, but click on the picture to enlarge it and look at that stunning quilting. Just amazing. Freehand longarm quilting. It is titled, "828 Valence St." by Laurie Tigner. In her imagination she saw what her presently not very impressive front garden in New Orleans might have looked like in a different time, and this is her interpretation of that vision.
Yep, this is me when I finally got home tonight. Of course there was much, much more to see, but I don't want to wear you out with pictures. (At least you didn't have to do all that walking!) I am so thankful to live right here and to have the privilege of visiting this bounteous display of quilty goodness!
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend and that you are doing something FUN!
Hugs and kisses,
