I had one busy weekend. Friday was the quilt show, Saturday I worked at the quilt shop, Sunday we got caught up on laundry and groceries(I hate grocery shopping!) and yesterday I spent doing a 100 odds and ends plus it was our 24th wedding anniversary. Yep, we're old! LOL! You know you're old when you reach the age when you first thought your parents were old and couldn't possibly imagine ever getting to that age! Remember!
The quilt show was just okay.....I really want to say it was fantastic but in all honesty, I can't. I took a ton of pictures but they didn't turn out very good as the area they had them in had awful lighting. The one inspiring quilt was one that they brought in special for the show called "The Quilt Show". If you ever get the chance to see this quilt, please do!
This quilt is made by Laura Peterson and measures 108" x 30". It was amazing the details! The third lady from the left....even her toenails were painted!! Toenails the size of the point on a pencil! The ladies bags were 3D and stuffed with little magazines and rolls of fabric. The black panels were dimensional also, just like at a real quilt show! The ribbons were real ribbons not just applique.
The only man in the quilt is checking out his watch and you could actually see the time on it! The people were about 7" tall.
Here are few of the photos that turned out fairly good....
