This quilt is a special exhibit that is on display this year. It is called 'The Supper' and is 15.3 feet wide and 5.5 feet tall and beautiful. The entire quilt is made from 1/2 inch squares, 51,816 of them. Go check it out, it would make daVinci proud.
Here are just some pictures of quilts that I (Rachel) enjoyed and thought you might too, although no picture is as good as seeing it in real life, full color, and the atmosphere, oh the atmosphere!
This quilt is the only one that I took a close up picture of the tag, sorry, I should have done it on all the quilts. But if you click on the picture of the quilt, it will give you a close up and hopefully you can see what you want to see. You should definitely click on the above picture and look at the amazing binding, applique, whatever you call it around the edge. So pretty!
Okay, I took a picture of this one because I loved it, then I visited Natalia's blog (link on the right) and realized it is hers!!!! Natalia, it is so beautiful, good job!
Holy smack chicken, amazing!
Okay, you know that quilting is getting to you when you see a quilt from a far and recognize the pattern. This pattern is called Eureka! and it is beautiful - the colors and all. It is in the show this year.
This Eureka! quilt was in the show last year and was also stunning.
Get your fannies down to the Expo Center and see them all yourselves! You can print off a $1 off coupon for admission at http://www.hmqs.org/. These pictures were taken before the ribbons were awarded. Do you think I picked any winners? If anyone else takes some pictures of their favorites, email them to me and I will put them on here too.
