    That thumbnail shot of the log cabin is amazing. It just blows me away that somebody can be so precise with such tiny pieces. The world is abound with talent! Beautiful quilts at that show. Thanks for sharing.

    Gilly,
    Hydrangreas was probably done with the Petal Play way. They have a website. I've used their technique on a few quilts.

    Thanks for the show! Ya'll do some great work over there!

    The miniature log cabin is amazing. The crazy quilt is so soft and feminine. My favorite is the chocolate decadence that was varied strips. Very creative.

    I was fortunate enough to travel to Ireland from Texas. What a great experience. Love Ireland and the Irish people. My friend quilted the winner floral quilt. She is an amazing quilter. The embroidered crazy quilt is the first one I have ever seen that makes me want to do one.
    Thanks for posting the pictures.

    I'm not sure how this quilter did hers but there is a series of books (and kits) using a technique that achieves this 3 dimensional look. It uses a type of stabilizer that bends and allows your shapes to curve. I apologize for my vague description but my old mind can't remember her name at the moment. I think if you search the web for 3 dimensional quilt patterns you'll easily find the author/quilter. She recently moved her business from Cape Cod, mass to Florida.

    OMG! The Log cabin looks about one inch per square block. Fabulous!

    All beautiful quilts and Why-oh Why did I not go on that Trip this year.

    I am looking forward to the next Exibhit.

    Thank you for sharing!
