    I have said before: There should be a different name for these and for the things I make. They are the opposite ends of a quilting spectrum. . absolutely amazing.

    I was so fortunate to be able to go to Houston and to a quilt show for the first time. It is just amazing. So much eye candy, such nice people, and so many products. The overall winner was a complete show stopper. Just magnificent. Thanks for sharing these pictures.

    Thank you for sharing -- this quilting board is the best !
    Always sharing !
    I enjoy the quilt shows because I can't go to them very often. So its my inspiration ! Love the last photo of the country scene(plaids for the barn roofs-excellent idea) and enlarged tulips at the bottom.


    Happy Quilting !

    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 have to agree with you Ruth. I won't live long enough to ever make a quilt that is even close to any of those shown. I do love them though!!!

    Amazing what a simple hexagon and unique, intricate patterns become such beautiful work of art.
