Had a wonderful time on Saturday with my mom and mother-in-law – we went to a Quilt Expo in Oklahoma City. Do we look ready to rumble or what?
This was the quilt that won Best of Show. Believe me when I say that my cell phone photo does not do this quilt justice. It’s a whole cloth quilt and the quilting in places was probably a tenth of a centimeter or some other crazy small stitching.
But personally this is my favorite kind of quilt and it won Best Traditional Quilt. There are a couple of four patch blocks that are about an inch tall. When we read about the quilt we were amazed to find that there are 4,667 pieces in this top! Very inspiring.
This show was more vendor booths than quilts, but even that was wonderful. Each of the booths had quilts hanging for inspiration and many had demos and make-and-takes.
I’ll give you just one guess which craft I worked on today after being at that show….
