I am always drawn to house quilts and I also love blanket stitching. So it is only natural that I would want a picture of this one. This is a Little Quilts pattern, isn't it? Or certainly similar.
There is a little stage in the room where they show the quilts and they always have a feature on it. I didn't realize until this year that they feature quilts that represent the next year's theme on the state. So, baskets it will be next year. Isn't this one cool? I lovethe way the baskets are made.
I like this one, too. I am not a very good photographer -- probably not news, now is it? It's hard to tell on this one if I was trying to get the quilt or the exit door. LOL.
What you are supposed to be seeing in this one is the long narrow quilt with the 4 baskets. The flowers in each one were done on an embroidery module. Cool idea. I bought the embroidery module when I got my new machine quite a few years ago now. We won't talk about how many times I have used it. But if I were to use it I might want to do something like this.
Not sure why I have this one. Maybe because it is so colourful. The striped (piano key?) border sure seems to be popular as it has been on many quilts. I have done this once or twice but have a hard time keeping all the stripes as nice and straight as these are.
I like the dark colour background on this one. Definitely a starry, starry night.
Here I am again taking pictures of pastel quilts. I really, really like this one. The colours and fabrics are just so pretty and blend so well. It was on a short side aisle so I had a hard time getting a picture of the entire thing but this one gets most of it.
Here is the center.
Just look at some of these yummy fabrics. Not a one that I own. I love to look at quilts at shows and in magazines, and yes, on other blogs, to see if I own any of the fabrics. Some kind of taste validation thing going on I guess.
Ta da -- the end. I think it is always fun to see quilts and certainly if you have stuck with me for all these quilt show posts you must too. I get lots of ideas. I like to think that taking pictures of quilts that strike me at the time is a good way to broaden my horizons. I love primitive and do tend to get into a bit of a rut. Of course, when I make something a little different I have issues finding a place to put them in my house. But that's a good problem to have!
