    My DH and I went to the quilt show today and saw lots of fantastic quilts and there were alot of interesting ideas represented!!

    I hoped to run into Don - Isewman but missed him. I hope you don't mind Don that I post pics of your show here. Don belongs to the Quilt Guild that presented the show.

    Here are the ones that impressed me. I noticed the quilting more than I ever did before. I am not good at the hand or machine quilting down part. But after being exposed to all the conversations about it on here I was more aware of it instead of dismissing it and looking beyond it.

    I felt I looked at these with a better perspective from all I have leaned on here of areas that I was not familiar with before the board. Now I looked at these techniques with a new understanding.

    So enjoy all the beauty!!

    This is one of the quilting techniques I mentioned above

    This one is interesting as it is not a complicated quilt but never the less an interesting look! The fabric chosen gives it the fascination factor. It would be a good beginner quilt.

    Thanks for posting all these. I loved Don's quilt the best!!! I was looking at it before I read about it being Don's. I was thinking I really liked it & that I should make a cool quilt like that with barns or houses & trees! Very nice!!!

    This is probably a third of all the displays!

    When we were in the show I was taking pics of anything I thought was worth the interest. ( they all were fabulous but I didn't want to take the time to take all of them) and when I passed one Glen thought I should take a pic of he would let me know!! He told me he likes to look at pretty things too! LOL

    But the funny thing was when we got in the car. He looked at me and said You know I was noticing all the tips and twicks in there! He thought it was funny he could pick them out. I said well you have really been learning haven't you! BTW WHAT IS A TWICK?? He says it's half a twist and half a tuck!!!! Like the quilt piece we were talking about this morning!!! So we have a new quilt word!!! A TWICK is when a fabric gets twisted and tucked up where it shouldn't be!!!
    Tips are his version of "points" So watch out for your Tips and Twicks!! LOL

    Thank you Rhonda for posting this. We don't get anything like that here so it's a real treat to have such a virtual tour of a Show. Beautiful quilts - I've been back over them at least three times already.
    And I will definitely watch my twicks now!! what a great word.

    Really appreciate you taking the time and effort to post your pics. Some absolutely beautiful designs, it really gives us so much inspiration to look at a wide variety of work. I will be extra careful of tips and twicks. Thanks again.

    So many ideas and patterns. I learn something every day! I would love to make the hummingbird and wonder how the person made it? :)

    glad you all enjoy it!! I wasn't sure how many photos I could put on my card so I was being a bit choosy as to what I took. I could have taken 3 times more but I also knew I couldn't put all of them on the board. so these are the ones that struck me as the most interesting. I would have liked to have gotten Don's second one but the guild member who was helping me by pointing them out couldn't remember where it was and I never did find the tag so not sure which one it was.

    You're welcome!! I enjoy the sharing too!! I kind of felt like I really didn't take time to look closely too much as I was concious of Glen's needs and his being able to get through the aisles. So when I got home it was fun to see the pics and look more closely at some that I hadn't paid a lot of attention to aside from getting a good shot. there were soooo many!! You felt like you were in another world!! A Quilt World!! It was so well set up and displayed!! I heard one lady talking to her friend(mother maybe?) and they were taking home ideas on display for their quilt shop!! It was very inspiring and I am so impressed with the talent in this quilt guild!!!!

    If anyone has any questions about anything you see here you could ask Don he might be able to find out for you. It is his guild.

    Rhonda, thanks so much for giving us this guided tour of such a unique assortment of quilts, no two remotely alike. You have great taste when it comes to quilts.

    My favorites are the 2 or 3 Sampler Quilts. I hand quilted one in the late 70s, which got ruined along our travels. I want to make another one this year & those give me a lot of renewed inspiration. Flowers, stars & birds are such great themes. Also, the blue one with the white long-arm designs - I can only dream of a set-up like that.

    Tell Glen thanks for his input with the tips & twicks. I'll be looking for his comments & tell him he has great taste in his Wife & quilts. Both of you'll are keepers.
