    I just got back from my very first quilt show. My head is still spinning! I picked up an Olfa Circle Cutter and a new pad. I also picked up a plastic sheet with grid lines marked on it. My DH is going to make me a cutting table and adhere it to the top. I tried out a Tin Lizzy and three other quilting machines. My husband wants to get me one soon! I am so glad he went with me now. Out of all of the long arms I liked the Tin Lizzie the best. Here are some pictures, I hope you can see them OK.
    Big Winner

    This is the bottom right hand corner and the right border.

    This is the back "Aphrodite Quilt" It is a whole cloth quilt. Quilted with gold thread on light cream fabric. It was too big to get a picture of the whole quilt.

    I wish I could show more detail. Quilter fussy cut paisley designs and appliqued them to the quilt.

    You can tell a lot of work went into this. Some of the fabrics were hand dyed.

    This picture does not do justice to this quilt. It has a copper glow to it.

    They have my blood going for sure. I am more of a beginner quilt and I was afraid I would be intimidated but I was blown away, inspired, motivated etc. There is another one in June and I already have it on my calendar.

    I'm voting for the quilt of people at a quilt show and the tumbling blocks, but all the quilts are great. Thanks for showing.
