inspired

This past weekend I attended my first every quilt show. It was hosted by my local quilt guild, which I do not yet belong to but I may have to join! I really enjoyed the show. I will admit, many of the quilts were not my style, but I fully appreciated the skill in every one of them, and was inspired. Here is a sampling of what was on display:

A beautiful Christmas quilt with hand embroidered snowman blocks set on glittery white fabric:



A memorial quilt:



A wonky house quilt made by 4 generations of females to celebrate a family reunion, the youngest quilter only 9 years old!



This quilt was on plain fabric an entirely quilted by hand over a 2 year period, using over 1000 yards of thread!



Other entries that caught my eye:









Thanks so much for the inspiration!

The washing line quilt is great. Not my favourite colours but the feeling of movement is fab.

The large hexies and the houses really caught my eye. Like you I am in awe of the talent I see at quilt shows.

I really like the clothesline one too. It's so amazing to see the variety of quilts and styles. We have a big show here in November. Thanks for sharing.
