these aren't ya mama's "throw quilts"!
so my favorites (& dana's!) were the japanese quilts. they were so creative, intricate, innovative... honestly, you would have loved the show. okay, some of you might not have loved me dragging you around the vendor side, but i promise - you'd love the exhibit side!
here are a few pics...
here are dana & i in front of one of our absolute favs (dana - i think this is my #1 fav now). it was japanese cherry blossom trees. i would love a painting of this.
this one looks more like a traditional, applique quilt. in fact, when dana first showed it to me, i wasn't totally impressed - i mean, applique is what i do everyday. BUT when you look really close, the backing of this quilt is an eyelet/lace fabric. one, that's totally nontraditional & creative, and two, it must have been incredibly difficult to sew anything on top of that. it was super cool.
so fun! can't wait for next year! you better make your plans now!
