Quilt Show eye candy!

This was a very cool dimensional one. Lots of hidden surprises.

Very pretty pinks, beiges and browns.

Aaaaah. I fell in love with this one. And it was neat to see it was made by a local lady Debbie and I both knew. All in reds, golds and blues. It was made for a young girl who collects Raggedies.

Miniature wool and punchneedle. The only one of it's type that I saw. Tons of detail in the shading that do not show up in the pic.

A whole cloth miniature. WOW~!~

Another miniature. This Lone Star version was about 14-inches!

YUMMY! This mini was abut 12-inches! The tiniest of tiny pieces in that Feathered Star. I was so happy for them getting a ribbon! They deserved it.

Deb and I had a great time. Both of us with our junky legs are about done it. I came straight home and took a long nap! This year they had additional vendors in a building across the street also. Gasp...more walking. But we managed. And that is where I spent my money don't ya know. LOL So it was worth it. A booth had 30's fq for $1.60. Ones I had been looking for even. So that was a happy moment. And I bought a cute pattern. And a couple of tiny gifts. Overall a great afternoon spent with my sister :o)

Hey don't forget about the blog discount I am sharing.

I haven't been to a quilt show in ages, so this was fun! I'm madly in love with the mini whole cloth quilt.

Wonderful quilts! Those minis were incredible!! I love the one with pinks and browns. I want to do a whole cloth myself.
