Comparing this event with previous years, this year the numbers were down. I say this as I was able to take all these pictures without waiting for someone to move out of the way. Usually you have to wait just to look at them, let alone get a snap shot. Quilters Eye Candy……..
This was a previous quilt in years past which made another showing. Wonderful, artfully done!
This quilt was electrifying! And the quilting with orange and yellow threads was a nice touch!
This won a ribbon in the big block category. It kinda reminds me of a godseye. The quilting is a wow factor!
I visited the Bobbin Lace making group. They actually have a lace making guild in Dallas. This fascinates me. I have watched this done many times on youtube and want to get into the hobby. It is relatively inexpensive. But I already have a hobby cramping my free time for other hobbies.
In talking with these lovely ladies, they spoke of Princess Diana’s wedding dress was done in a style of homemade bobbin lace. There were not all flowers on the dress. The people who made the lace put a bunch of symbols in, each having a different meaning. I did not know of bobbin lace in 1980 as I was not even 10 years old. I will have to look up more info on this factoid as it is pretty interesting.
A cathedral windows quilt. I have always wanted to try making one of these but am afraid this would be a forever UFO. When I snapped this photo I did not realize the sub-pieced units behind the white edges. A lot of work on many levels, this quilter has my upmost respect.
This quilt was sparsely pieced but has such a big impact. I forgot to look at the name of this one, but it reminds me of a chicken foot.
A ribbon granted to the owner of this jewel. Circle pieced quilts are a geometry phenomenon. A wonder. A puzzle how they accomplish this to this quilters mind anyway.
A stunning rendition of a log cabin with clamshell goodness. Wonderful tidbit on the credits of the quilt. Very unusual and admirable too. This one shimmered!
I will share more photos soon this is just a small sampling. Keep checking back. Until then, happy quilting!
