The following is a selection of those we viewed in person:
|There were lots of butterflies within butterflies.|
|I found this one charming.|
|Lots of color.|
|Accessory fabrics within the stained glass framework.|
|Neat idea that spoke to me.|
|Love the precision. Nicely executed.|
|Ten individually bound mini-quilts stitched to the turquoise background. |
Like an entomologist's display. Clever.
|I like the overlaid embroidery on this one.|
|This one made me laugh. Cute idea.|
The rest of the show was made up of exhibits by different groups. The highlight for me was a booth with three of Sharon Schamber's beautiful quilts. The detailing was spectacular. I could have stood there for the next hour just taking in her incredible workmanship. This particular show is not juried so there were no individual entries or prizes. The exhibit I liked best was done by the Rocky Mountain Creative Quilters. I didn't think to take any photos. I must have left my brain at home. They have a fine bunch of talented quilters in that group. I don't know that I could have chosen any that I liked best - they were all amazing.
Caveat: You may note some quilts that look like they are hanging poorly. You are right! The bars they were hanging from sagged in the middle. This made the quilts slide toward the center so fold lines were accentuated, which made some quilts look crooked and bent. Many of the bed-size quilts were dragging on the bare floor. What a shame!
Next week I will get back to the saga of my binding redo and share a gorgeous binding on one of Sharon Schamber's quilts.
Sew a happy seam this week. I wish you inspiration from the quilts above and others that you may encounter.
