Quilt Con Quilts

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.

Here as promised are a few pictures from Quilt Con.  If you have never been to a large quilt show you should make it a goal to get to one.  While I am not a fan of large crowds I know there are plenty of shows that do not have the large attendance that you will find in Houston or Paducah.  I heard that there was about 10,000 at Quilt Con but it did not seem crowded.  Remember this is a total for all days and much of the time a large number of attendees were in classes or lectures.

It was a nice show but I was not crazy about the way the quilts were displayed in zig zag rows.  I know that that creates more display space but I kept feeling like I was missing quilts as I walked down the rows.  I have read similar comments from others who were there also.  That was my main complaint.  

I took pictures of the cards hanging by the quilts and they follow the pictures of the quilts so you can see who made them and what they had to say about their quilt.

































I hope you enjoyed these.  The following two were in the American Made Brand Booth and I have no information on who made them but I did like them.





I am refraining from commenting on each quilt so as not to bias you with my opinions or comments.  I did like them all because I didn't take pictures of any that I did not like.
I would love to know what you think about these and which one(s) you like best.

  1. Christina's World. . . OMG!! That is the coolest and one I had not seen in other pictures. That is just amazing. I'm also drawn to the quilts that have the awesome FMQing on them, even though MQG does not recognize it, I think it is awesome. I think beauty is part of the functionality of a quilt. And nothing makes a quilt more beautiful than beautifully done FMQing. :)

  2. Wow I cannot even begin to choose a favorite. Each one has its own merits about what makes it awesome. I am so happy you got to go and a wee bit envious.
