Christmas QAL April Post 2

I enjoyed the MQX East in Providence very much and I did take lots of pictures.  Funny thing, but one of the vendors told me she did not allow pics so I deleted the one of her quilt that I had while she watched me do it.  Oh well.  I do have pictures of the winning quilts and some others with special attention to the fmq that was done on them.  I'll just show a few now. 

I just visited Lynn's blog http://sewnwildoaks.blogspot.com/   and was pleased to learn that one of her quilts was on display at the quilt show.  I wish I had known.  I looked at so many, but I think I do remember hers because I love the traditional quilt styles and spent more time looking at them.

This quilt won Best in Show.  I guess you can see why.

This quilt looks like a huge photo from afar.

The quilter used quite a few techniques to get her desired effect.  The water is silver decorative thread.

This one I love.

Of course, I love this cat quilt.  But I noticed that the quilter kept her fmq simple and achieved a pleasant effect, which won her a ribbon.  There are feathers quilted in the sashing, but the squares are simpler. 

God Bless.

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the show, Joanna - bit odd the 'no publicity' woman - what did she think you were going to do with the pics??

Some of the quilts I saw at the FoQ in Birmingham (UK) last year I thought were so clever and intricate BUT more ornamental than useful - I like to chuck my quilts on the bed, snuggle under them & have the cats sit on 'em!

Looks like you went to a great show. I love the kitties - especially the yellow one in the lime green border. Happy quilting.
