A Quilt Fix

I have been needing a quilting fix 
and some girl friend time.
 This weekend we arranged to attend "Quilt Colorado"
sponsored by the Colorado Quilting Council. 
 It was a wonderful show,
 a vendors mall,
 and classes and lectures.
by some fantastic teachers. 

Any time you have the opportunity to 
attend a quilt show,
it is sheer inspiration.
Just listen to the people around you,
everyone is excited,energized, and spellbound
at the creativity that is surrounding them
all made with fabric and thread.

There were many quilts that just left me awestruck,
but here are just a few that might do the same for you.
America, Let It Shine 
by Sherry Reynolds
 Best of Show

 Look at the detail.

Remembrance by Dawn Gerber
 Best Hand Quilting Award

Incredible applique details

 On the Wings of a Prayer
by Jane King

Just a flag?
Look again.


by Karen Azevedo
Best Machine (Stand-Up) Quilting

 Karen is phenomenal.
 I truly love her work and her talent.

It's just what I needed to feel motivated and excited.
Girl Friends,
Extraordinary Quilts,
Lunch and Laughter.

Thanks, Quiltie Buddies,
it was a great day.

  Until Next Time-


  1. Amazing quilt and the quilting...oh my. My favorite is the "on a Wing and a Prayer" Sounds like a great time!

  2. It was a great show Kyle! Amazing work by Sherry, Dawn and Jane!

  3. It was a great day!

  4. The Baltimore is gorgeous! The quilt with the crystals is a beauty but I don't know that I would want a quilt with crystals on it. Seems like a quilt that would never get used.

  5. WOW! Thanks for sharing these wonderful quilts. Love them all, but that amazing.
