Hi blog friends! This weekend, I went out after work to the Quilt Show in Chicago! It was AMAZING! I did go last year also and wish I could spend more time there! Last year I was unable to take any classes, but this year, I did sign up for a class with Lesley Riley for a mixed media art quilt which was a total blast! Loved the class, Lesley is wonderful. I am not quite done with it, but will upload when I finish! :0) Until then here are two pictures of my personal favorite quils from this year created by talented quilters........I have not written their names down and now wish I had so I could list their name with the quilts! They were just breathtaking! They are detailed, full of expression, story and ART and love! These two quilts were filled with different fabrics, stitches, thread painting, fabric painted, dimension and really hit my heart seeing them. I will be showing you a variety of quilts each day so you can get a feel for the vast talent of the artists that submitted quilts to the show! Enjoy as I surely did! :0) Hugs,Patti
