Late show photos

Now my posts are a bit wonky in order...I know the show was a few weeks ago and I have posted since then but I've had visitors and my life has been a bit hectic! I also noticed I have been posting about a lot of things that have nothing to do with quilts...what am I thinking!

I will not make any claims to these being the best nor the most interesting quilts at the show. They are however the ones that caught my eye and came out best in the photos. I was my usual disorganized self and did not make notes...I thought I could just enlarge the photos and read the name of the maker...duhhh, the show labels don't have the names of the quilt or the maker only the number! So my apologies to the makers. If anyone knows their names I would be very happy to post them.

I really liked the use of vertical patterns in this first quilt. It has a tribal or aboriginal feel without being too kitsch. I also love the inner borders that are different on each side of the quilt.


The second quilt (bright green) also has an interesting vertical pattern. I liked the simplicity of the pattern and the balance of the colors.
















The theme of the show was architecture. Of course we spent a lot of time checking out any wonky or near wonky houses! This was just a fun quilt. I liked the sunrise at the upper left, the cat at the bottom and the log cabin blocks that seperate the rows of houses.







So totally loved the orange-ness of this little wall-hanging! Beads, buttons, and fuzzy stuff just make you smile!


Woops, off the make dinner...more later!

the wonky houses were definitely the best part of the show. That orange one really is fun - can't believe how well it photographs too.

Thanks for the mini-quilt show. They are all great quilts! Wow, that orange one really vibrates - what a fun little quilt! And I don't really care much for orange, usually. And the second, green, quilt really is quite architectural. Kind of like a Gee's Bend quilt. Thanks for sharing!

I virtually never do orange - but I can see why you fell for that one

Each one is sooo different from the next. Thanks - good ideas. The first one is so darned interesting - one would never get tired of looking at it. Houases are cheerful and happy. "Architecture" as a theme was a great idea.

I love the second one and, of course, the houses. The orange is great. I love the detail.

All great quilts! I'm filing the tribal one away in my mind as a possible layout for the African quilt I'm going to make someday...

Well you know I'd be all over that orange quilt!! How yummy! I always say that orange just makes you smile! The graphic one- I think it was the second picture- it is very cool- that would be a fun quilt to make. Thanks for sharing!
