NOTES: I’m back in town and my store is open again! I only carry items I am passionate about. The most popular items are the Set Up Tips for Free Motion Quilting card, the Line Tamer ruler and the Supreme Slider. I still have stock on the Supreme Slider but once they are gone, they are gone forever. It is the best slider on the market and they are closing shop.
I have so much to share with you! I have visited THREE quilt shows in the last 2 weeks and taught at both AQS Daytona Beach and the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show. I was in the East Coast time for 6 days, then 2 days back home to Pacific Standard Time, then 5 days back to EST. My body is confused!
This is a picture heavy post of AQS Daytona Beach. I am not sure how I will handle posting the other 2 shows (the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show and my local guild, the Folsom Quilt and Fiber Guild). I may post one per week or put them both up next week. Fortunately I am home for awhile.
Please know that if I have posted a quilt in a previous blog, I won’t post again. There were many spectacular quilts not included here that I have posted previously. Also, I did not take photos of the Cherrywood Challenge. Just me, but I get overwhelmed and my brain floods when there are that many quilts in a small space, all next to each other.
I had a fabulous time teaching with all but one class full. I love to teach! It fills my soul. I received so many stellar comments on my classes, it’s almost embarrassing. And I forgot to take photos. Again. But I was having such a good time teaching that I forgot!
Scroll to the end of the photos to see snaps of people I met and/or hung out with. It was such a hardship to be in Florida in February😊
I am just posting photos with attribution to the maker and quilter. I am just too far behind to comment on each, although I could not help but make a brief comment on a few. There is a very good reason each caught my eye and if I had more hours to my day, I would share with the beauty I saw in each. Enjoy:
All painted! Exquisite detail and emotion.
Might have been a Judge’s Choice if I had the privilege, just so original, colorful and happy!
The detail on this quilt is a gobsmack, amazing and happy details.
I am only showing two of the many spectacular Baltimore Album quilts from an exhibit. I particularly like how the maker outlined each shape in black hand embroidery.
Look at that scale!
Beautiful, delicate, so lovely.
Divine applique with gorgeous loft.
Oh the happy details of this one!
She must have so much fun doing all those dots! She uses the Appliquick method by the way.
I have long admired her work. This is all done by hand, layer upon layer. It was wonderful to see it in person.
This sparkled with the variety of hand dyed fabrics.
There were gorgeous silks in this quilt and it was one of my favs.
I got to visit her while at the show. The title refers to pushing beyond our challenges and troubles. No matter how grim the moment might feel, there is something “beyond all that”.
This is the coolest dog gone notion! It has a sturdy mount that will work on any machine and it projects a thin laser line for piecing. If there was a Shark Tank for quilters, they would be stars! Sew Q Laser.
It was a wonderful visit! The show is smaller and friendly with top notch quilts, all in Florida in February. What’s not to like?
The last time I taught at Daytona Beach was in late Feb….2020. Oh what drama as I landed in Sacramento to an empty airport, the atmosphere filled with fear. We are indeed, “beyond all that”.
