Jacksonville Quilt Fest is an annual show put together jointly by seven area quilt guilds. With the rising cost of everything, I think this was a very wise decision on their part. And could be an option for small guilds all over.
Anyway...let's look at some of my favorite quilts. I apologize in advance for not getting information about the quilter. I don't know where my head was. So if you see a quilt you recognize, please feel free to share information about the quilt in the comments section.
Let's start the show...
A "+ and x" quilt done in Kaffe...AWESOME!
I took a picture of this one because I made a quilt very similar and I like the
way this one was quilted...possible quilting inspiration for later.
Great use of small pieces
This quilt was done in a mix of prints and batik solids and hand quilted.
This was one of my favorites...an original design inspired by her husband.
I loved the use of color in this quilt...the rusty Fall tones were gorgeous!
I have to admit that I've never been particularly inspired by this quilt pattern
because it's not my style. But the quilting on this quilt was ridiculous
...in a really good way. Here are a couple detail shots.
Just a really pretty quilt
I love wholecloth quilts...even small ones.
Yet another fabulous applique quilt
Another quilt done in prints and batiks...the soft pastels are just awesome!
The cherubs are 2" square!!!
This quilt is not even 18" square....ugh.
Doesn't this quilt make you feel happy?
This one was probably my favorite. Between the piecing
and the fabric selection, it was just a win for me.
And last but not least...a booty shot...of the quilty kind!
I'm proud to say that minus the pattern and four fat quarters, everything I bought was on sale. There was one particular booth that was selling repros at $2 and $3.50 a half yard. I could have bought LOTS more but I'm trying to save all I can for next month's trip to Houston...YaY...can't wait!
Till next time...
