More Quilt Shows ......

Spring is the season for quilt shows in Florida, and today we went to Sarasota to experience their show.  This guild has 300 members and puts on a very nice show.  Here are a few quilts that I thought were especially beautiful or interesting:
I have this book,Carrie Hall patterns by Barbara Brackman.  Great to see one made.

A Jo Morton pattern, so nice to see one of these made as well

 I do not do paper piecing, but I do appreciate them.
This was incredible work,it looks just like a painting.

Loved this, a Blackbird Designs applique from
 the Garden Club book (yes, you guessed, I have that book too !)
Lovely wool applique quilt, beautifully made.

I thought this was such an interesting modern quilt, loved the quilting which is not clear - narrow horizontal lines.

Great quilting on this one too, very detailed machine work.


You can see the scale of this from the ribbon - tiny wool applique and half inch !!!! finished triangle squares.

Bird applique, details were very nice.

Fun Christmas quilt also with beautiful detailed machine quilting.
I am anxiously awaiting some photos to be posted from the boutis expo in Pierrefeu - I will post links as soon as I get them from our French friends !

The quilts are wonderful! And here I thought this would be boutis from the show in France - oh, how I wish I was there.
