Every two years, the 5 guilds in our county have a quilt show. Some years there's alot of traditional work, others there has seemed to be more contemporary pieces. This year, there were a couple quilts that gave me goosebumps, they were so impressive. These pictures are a sampling of them. Are they not simply gorgeous?? I hope you can see them well, I took them on my phone. It wasn't till I reviewed my shots, that I realized they were all album quilts. Each one was appliqued and quilted by hand. Exquisite work.
Are you all familiar with the blog Scrappy Appleyard? It's a wonderful blog and she's a great gal. You can access her blog from mine. It's worth checking out. The reason I mention her, is Johna'Lee had a booth at the show, and geesh, I wish I'd gotten a picture of it because it was a wonderful booth, my favorite there. I also wish I'd gotten one of us together, since I feel as though I've made a new friend. She's a delighful gal.
Everything I bought, I bought from her, and this is a sampling of my booty.
These patterns are wonderful, she's designed them. This picture doesn't do them justice, but you can see the samples on her blog.
