I went to quilt shows the past two weekends!! One was in Clarendon Hills and the second one was in Crest Hill. They were put on by quilt guilds and I really should have taken note of the names; but since I am not a quilter I just went and drooled!!!!
Pictured are some of my favorites seen on those two days. If anyone knows of the talented women who made these quilts please let me know so we I can give credit.
The first quilt is exactly what we need to see this time of year! Bright and cheery. I decided that my favorite quilts have white backgrounds and then patterned material on top of that.
I absolutely went ga-ga over this quilt!!! The fabric that was selected was fabulous and the placement of the pieces was so modern and cool! Love!!!
Here is a great idea. Framing a piece of quilting. This is just stunning!
My Mom went with me to the second show and I was so happy to take her. She loved looking at everything and especially the merchant mall! She is a quilter (and a knitter, sewer and embroiderer). I loved this quilt that was just white and beautifully stitched all over the place.
My other favorite type of quilt was like these two. Pick fun fabrics and then just put them all together. Love, love, love!
After the quilt show my Mom and I went to Robert's Sewing Center in Crest Hill, IL. It is a really fabulous quilt shop. My Mom was looking for fabrics to quilt these wonderfully vintage redwork pieces. She did not want fabric that screamed Christmas. I think she mad a fabulous choice with these fabrics. Stunning!!!!
I wanted you to be able to see more of her redwork. Isn't it just darling???
