Inspiration and Appreciation
Check out the first quilt. If this doesn't prove that all kinds of disparate fabrics can be used to create a spectacular quilt -- I don't know what does! There are calicos, florals, lame', plaids, etc. And the design works -- at least for me.
I love quilt shows. I like the samples. I love the vendors! I like seeing the "in" techniques/colors/fabrics (can you tell that small intricate pieced quilts were vogue one year?). But I get most of my inspiration from walking around the exhibits and marveling at the creativity, patience, color sense, and talent of quilters when I see the finished product. As you can imagine, this is just a little sampling of pictures I've taken -- and doesn't include all those wonderful quilts where photos aren't allowed.
What about you - what do you enjoy most at quilt shows? I hope this has been a week of great inspiration for you!
