Quilt Show 2016

This weekend I went a local quilt show in Mukwonago WI.  It was sponsored by the Mukwonago Crazy Quilters Guild and I have to say it was amazing!

I meanwhile am still quaking in my boots at the thought of quilting my Lily baby quilt...

After seeing some of these beauties, I'm even more intimidated.

In no particular order:

Applique fancy

and plain (but not really!)

Beautiful poppies, and I love red.

A small shaped quilt, I think it represents and aerial view of Wisconsin!

Lovely strings

details showing prairie points and button trim, embroidery, wow!

This one was called Pickled Clam Shells.  Those points in the arcs are about an inch high.

Urban mania.  Fussy cut small pieces, in the lower row on the right the lady is about two inches high.

Down the center aisle.  Those wooden legs tripped up lots of us gawkers.

Lots of small flying geese made this one so cool and I loved the border.
Lots of amazing black and white plus color...

and black, white and gray

This one was called My Son's Shirts.  I hope he had a few left to wear!

This was a representation of the daily temperatures in 2014. 

Tulle poppies on a wall hanging.

This one is so tiny I missed it the first day, but check out that quilting!
It was so overwhelming the first day that I went back on Sunday to look again.  I'm glad I did because I saw things I missed, and that I didn't get a picture of on Saturday.  My camera on my phone also got overwhelmed on Saturday and the battery petered out about 3/4 of the way through.

Quilters of the world you are awesome!  Even the simplest quilts were gorgeous.

There were vendors too, and I managed to bring home a few treasures.  I bought three patterns, a small kit and one yard of striped fabric plus two charm packs of background fabric, and scoped out several shops for our next Fabric Acquisition Road Trip.

Sew on!!
