I considered a different posting and then back to The Quilts of Houston, but so many of you said, “More, more, MORE!” So more it is! We are all about quilting after all, aren’t we?
Very cool 3D optical illusion quilt. Cool! And I can’t imagine graphing that one out.
This one is Dear Jane blocks! Very nice setting for those little blocks. You can read all about Dear Jane and see other DJ quilts by typing “dear jane” in the search box at the upper right corner of this blog. Go ahead. You can come back here after you look at more DJ quilts….
And now for my Journey into the Trees section of quilts……
Almost like a painting, isn’t it? Wait until you see more……
Great colors. Loved the tree trunks too.
Hard to believe these are quilts, isn’t it? I love the irregular edge on the top and bottom of this one.
Loved the water in this one too. So much that I thought it deserved a closer look…..
Pretty realistic looking, isn’t it?
Once again, almost a photograph. Incredible.
And this concludes my fascination with trees at the quilt show. Amen.
How about some really bright, large butterflies?
Butterflies of a different color here.
I liked this one a lot too. I’m a log cabin block lover and I really love the subtle way they used them in this one.
How about this one? With lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of bling!
Here’s an up close of just the center. Awesome detail. Amazing quilting too.
Up close of the left side. Did I say amazing quilting? Love all the sparkly bling.
This is the upper right side. Nice fireworks. Amazing quilting. I’m stuck on amazing quilting.
Elly Sienkiewicz entertained us with Baltimore Album blocks and signing her newest book. Such a sweet, gentile lady.
And how about this celebrity? Recognize him from Extreme Home Makeovers? It’s Ty Pennington! Notice the picture over his shoulder. Wonder how he feels about lifesize pics of himself greeting him wherever he goes?
Beverly explains important things seen at Market as we load up the back of her car and Janet watches from the back seat.
And since you hadn’t seen any food in awhile, I thought it important to share this picture of my plate of food at the Moda party. Yummy barbecue and all the fixin’s!
I also took a class with Helene, the designer of these fabulous cat blocks! Meet Pepper Puss. All the students got fabric to put together one of these cute cats.
And we learned her technique of fusible glue to appliqué the pieces. I’m going to be teaching a class on this in the New Year. It’s a very neat way to do fusible appliqué.
Back to a few more quilts…..
Pioneer Woman needs this one to hang on her wall.
Cute little sleeping raccoon. I’m in my animal phase now.
Loved this cute zebra. Wouldn’t he look great hanging on the wall at your Lake House, Kaye?
This 3D quilt was quite different. Here’s a view from an angle…..
Interesting, isn’t it? How about an up close to really see how it’s constructed….
I don’t even want to think about how the quilter put this one together. Just enjoy the innovativeness.
This one was in the embroidery category. But you absolutely have to see it up close.
Amazing, isn’t it? But I have more…..
You can close your mouth now. Because I think I just saw your jaw drop.
And there were more in that same category…..
But you have to see these up close to really appreciate them.
Pretty cool, isn’t it. One more of this one…..
All the stitching was really somethin’.
Love the bright colors on this one. But of course, you have to see it up close too….
Isn’t it cool?
This quilt was entered in the Group Quilt category. Each of the ladies in this Bee did a self-portrait. Using Kaffe Fassett fabrics! Just a couple up close…..
What an incredible use of those bright fabrics!
Aren’t they something up close? Amazing the way those bright fabrics provide the shadows in the faces. Now you have to scroll back up and look at the whole quilt again. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
Once again, if you want to see which quilts won ribbons at the show, visit this link:
None of the ribbons were hanging on the quilts when I viewed them at Market. Interesting to see which ones actually won after I got home.
Hope you enjoyed the Quilt Show! Now it’s time to make some Pumpkin Pie Dump Cake for Thanksgiving, don’t you think?
