If you click on the link above you can see some behind the scenes photos of getting ready for the show and of the judging.
Over a year ago or more, my hubby and daughter bought me a new camera mainly for me to take to quilts shows so, of course, I had it with me today. I began taking pictures of the quilting in some, the colors in others and patterns that I really liked. Well then all of a sudden..... DEAD BATTERIES! WHY! Seem like those batteries last forever but never die when you are just taking a picture of nothing special! UGH.
Note to self.... change camera batteries before quilt shows! Note to vendors at quilt show... SELL BATTERIES! lol
I have been a fan of Susan Brubaker Knapp and her wonderful art quilting. She happens to be a member of the Lake Norman Guild and I was Thrilled to see so many of her pieces at the show, up close and personal!
I have seen many of them online, but to actually see the real piece... amazing!
Here is one of her lastest and one of my favorites.
Well before my camera died, I did get a few other pictures.
My daughter is wanting a new quilt in purples and greens. Looks like a good combination.
This one was just...wow!
This one looks really fun and easy. I would like to do one in bright colors.
I'm not a pink fan really, but I do like stars!
I think the colors contrasts really make this work.
Just about the time my camera died, I came across this small wall hanging, so
I had to use my iphone to get the picture.
This received a Third Place in "small pieced" catagory.
I was kinda suprised when I saw it because....
Here is my version of the same wall hanging!
How Cool is that? I did enter this in my county fair and did win a first place
ribbon in the "wall hanging"! This isn't a great picture of it, washed out looking.
This does hang in my office at work!
Here is a link to a few more pictures I took.
