This weekend I went to the Chicago Quilt Show! It was beyond AMAZING!!!!!!! The fabric artists have done a superb job to inspire fabric artwork! I am going to share a picture of my friend Laura Krasinski(her link is on the left of my blog), who had a quilt in the show in the Journal Exhibition.......

and also my FAVORITE QUILT of the show done by.......

Elizabeth Dillinger titled Woodland Story

and it is beyond beautiful and indescribable! Of course I am a FAIRY lover, but this has a tree spirit and such a gorgeous theme, it warmed my heart! I will share a few pictures to give you a feeling for it! She is a fabric artist extraordinaire!!!!!!! And reading her inspiration also showed me how she poured herself into this piece! I could feel it from viewing it! Just so special! Enjoy! I will share more in the days to come!

Hugs,Patti

This is amazing Patti! I read Elizabeth's inspiration for her piece and while it was sad, I can see why doing this comforted her. It's beautiful and the tree reminded me of your tree carving :) Beautiful. AND; to see our Laura there! I'm so happy you had a good time. I look forward to more pics. Love, Marilyn
