Here's one of my favorites from the show:
And here's another. You can see a better photo of this one on Christa's blog.
I love the amazing pieces I saw including PPed ones such as this:
And this art one (which wasn't a winner) was one of my favorites:
Look at the trunk:
And the stitching:
This was my favorite large quilt:
And how is this for an I-Spy? Each square was about 1-1/2 to 2"
And now for my complaint about the show. The frames the quilts were on (like the black-clothed ones we used) were set up as a maze and no matter where you went you felt you weren't seeing all the quilts. You would go a little way in a zig-zag fashion and suddenly would be among vendors rather than looking at quilts. You would try another part of the maze and you were almost immediately at the vendors. Now I'm very sure the vendors loved this and it isn't as if I didn't plan to spend money at the booths, but I wanted to see all the quilts. As I said, I kept wondering if I was missing portions of the maze and, indeed, I must have because I see some quilts on Christa's blog which I didn't see there. I did see three very pretty quilts that were in the back about three feet from a back wall and I felt very bad for the creators of these. As well, to create the maze, lots of corners had to be created so lots of quilts, even winning quilts, were displayed around corners like this one:
I much preferred our method. What did the rest of you who were there think?
Tomorrow is Mother's Day and this cute piece from the show may remind you of your mother. Which one of the three is your mom???
