International Quilt Show 2017 ~ The Quilts

In addition to the vendors, there is also a fabulous quilt show.
This was the incredible centerpiece as you walked in the door.
"Northwood Awakening"
a 25 foot wide Photofiber landscape artwork 
A combination of photos and quilting created by
Steve and Ann Loveless of Frankfort, Michigan

Absolutely stunning!

I would love to take a walk in these peaceful woods.

There was a wonderful display of red and green antique Christmas Quilts.
A book has been published on these beauties.

You know that this quilt caught my eye ;)

Some quilts are more like artwork!

This was a challenge where all used the same yellow in their quilt.

One of my favorites ~ a combination of quilting and EPP.


And this was where I spent the majority of my limited time.

It's amazing how much the quilts change based on color and placement!

So bright and happy!

I think that this one was my favorite!

Similar, yet so different.

Such a joy to see so many hexies!

I'm not a bright person, but these quilts make me smile.

Different ideas for borders as well.

This was a stunning art quilt, the single bolt of lightening and range of textures - oh my!

I loved this town and its fence border,.

An Emily Munroe quilt.

This work of art really kept me mesmerized:

Something about the organized crookedness and the stories that each square told. 

The stitching was amazing.

The colors of this quilt were captivating as if emanating light from within.

And a final quilt that is just my style

I'll be back with a final post of the Quilt Show to share what came home with me :)

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
~Romans 10:9-10

Blessings, Patti

Wonderful quilts like this amaze me.
It must require much vision to picture even before the actual stitching begins.
I can,t imagine the thought process?
I honestly love the colors!
But not the yellow ones, just a bit over the top for me.

The Northwood Awakening quilt must have taken a lot of thought and preparation to make. Mind boggling. There is surely a story behind it. Seems to me it would have to be displayed in an office building type setting as it is so long.
