As you know I promised you photos from Wisconsin's Quilt Expo 2012 a few days ago. Well here they are. I am sorry but I don't always take a photo of the entire quilt but only the technique I am interested in or a friend may be interested to see.
It was really good show this year and this is only a sampling. They seemed to have finally gotten better at who they are allowing in the show.
Here is are the alphabet quilts made by the same artist. Her workmanship is outstanding.
I loved the button bottom on this quilt. Those are two hands on the lower left side releasing butterflies and petals.
Embroidery on this quilt added alot and I though Debra would enjoy this.
Linda Roys Unbelievable quilt this year. She is amazing and even though she wins each year, usually best of show, she did not this year and I thought she should have.
Some more embroidery used on a quilt. Just for you Debra.
An old fashioned looking basket quilt but Oh my the quilting on this one.
A wonderful fish and turtle quilt. There was lots of sparkle added to it too. Love how she did the water.
Another beautifully constructed quilt with outstanding quilting.
This is a full view of the alphabet quilt show at the beginning of this post. I had to go back and get it. Still people standing right in front though.
Here is what I have spent my time on! These muffin top pin cusions in zinc canning jar covers which will be for sale on Etsy. I salvaged some blocks off of an old quilt that had been used in the back of a pickup truck or something and was torn and stained but several of the handsewn blocks were still in good shape. Each time I made one I thought of the woman who worked so hard hand piecing all these one inch squares for hours and feel good that a few have been saved
for another life.
