    Thank you for the reminder of the wonder we saw at the show. I was fascinated, especially with the little quilts, some had tiny pieces, some looked not much wider than a couple of rows of stitches. And the small, tight quilting on the tiny quilts! Then the magic of the large quilts! My eyes were almost as tired as my feet!

    Wow... gorgeous but too too much work for me to ever attempt such a level of quilt making. I wonder what people do with these masterpieces after they make the show circuit? They are not exactly quilts that you would throw on a bed...

    The quilt I had in the show isn't exactly a masterpiece, but it hangs on my guest bedroom wall.

    Wow! If these are made by casual (vs. professional) I'm overwhelmed. Especially the art quilts. I just don't know how anyone who is not an artist can put together such things. But, then, there are so many talented people out there anything is possible. In any case, congratulations to anyone who has a quilt among these fabulous pieces. Beautiful. And your photography is excellent, too. Very well done on all parts.

    OMG what amazing and gorgeous quilts, especially the one with Mt. Rushmore, looks like a photo. Besides the exquisite quilts, the landscape and art quilts were spectacular. My quilts pale in comparison, but when I look at my first quilts to the ones I make now, I can see a huge improvement - practice makes perfect. There are some amazing quilters out there. Thank you so much for sharing these quilts with us.

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    I would have hated to be the judges. How would they ever pick out of so many amazing quilts.

    I was only able to go on Saturday and wished I would have had two or three days there. The quilts were absolutely stunning and the shopping was wonderful!! I definetly helped the economy!! I was so glad they had a place to check your packages!! Next year I will be going for at least two days. The dates for next year in Grand Rapids, MI are August 20-23, 2014.
