Re-Cap of Quilting Live!

This was such a fun show that I thought you would enjoy¬†“going to the show” with me. Here are the pictures I took at the show. Check out The Quilting Live! website here to get info on next year’s show. Maybe I will see you there!

I saw a ton of amazing quilts of all styles: Art, Modern, Traditional. It was so much fun to be able to see so many different styles in one place.

It was also really cool to see quilts that I had seen in some of my favorite magazines

There were several inspiring exhibits, but my favorite was the “Evolution of an Artist” that featured the works of wonderful artists John Flynn, Wendy Huhn, Kaye Koler, Katie Pasquini Masopust, Vikki Pignatelli, Sharon Schamber and Holice Turnbow.

I was particularly thrilled to get to chat with Holice Turnbow about his quilts, his journey with quilting and his life. My good friend had taken his class at the show and said it was great!

I truly enjoyed this show for the variety and inspiration. I can’t wait for next year! My favorite quilt is the boy and the chicken with their mouths open. What’s your favorite?
