Quilt Fever 2011 Quilt Show Part 2!!

Here are more photos of the quilt show in Orlando last weekend!!
I loved how they used yo-yo's to make these lil flowers in the pots!!! Such an adorable quilt!

This was a breath-taking piece of art. So much detail that you truly had to see it to believe it! Fabulous!!!! AMAZING! UNBELIEVABLE!

I thought this was a neat idea. Antique quilts in a glass case!

Never saw a sewing machine this small!!! You turn the crank to make it sew!! NEAT!

Another Bargello quilt!!!! This is the type I am thinking of doing for Ronnie.

Reflection quilting! You cut the same piece about 5 times and piece it so it forms a reflection!

Lisa and I bought the book to make this quilt last year! Another one on the "to do" list ;) It's called "Underground Railroad"



Loved this one with all the white!

WOW!! red work...amazing...close-ups below!

Stayed tuned for more!!! I'll try to fit the rest on one post...if not I should def be able to do it in two ;)

Quilt Fever 2011 Quilt Show Part 1

Last Saturday Lisa and I went to a quilt show!!! It was sponsored by the Florida Cabin Fever Quilters Guild! IT WAS AMAZING!!!!! This was my VERY first quilt show!!!
I will need to break these pics up into several posts, as I have hundreds of photos!

My bestie, Lisa collects tea pot fabrics! This was SO cute with the little hankies!

This piece was AMAZING! It has quite a bit of machine embroidery on it!

The center and paisleys are all embroidered and so they end up being raised.

I LOVED this miniature! I never would have thought to put that bright orange in there and those stem pieces are SO tiny!

LOVED this paper-pieced flamingo!! Reminded me of the recent DQ I did to represent the state of Fl!

SO pretty!

NEAT pumpkin!!

LOVED this!

Celtic...I don't particularly care for it, but Lisa does ;) This is made using bias strips.

Look at this Log Cabin!!!!!!!! WOW!!  Lovely color values!


such a simple pattern yet so beautiful!
one of the demos!
paper-pieced New York Beauty!
Loved the use of yo-yos!
This piece was simply unbelievable!!!!!!!!!

more Celtic

Stay posted for more!!
