More Quilts from MQX West

Here is the second batch of quilts from the Machine Quilters Exposition I attended on Thursday.  There are still a few more days of these, so be sure to check back if you want to see some beautiful quilts.  You won't want to miss the quilt that won best of show!

I always love this southwest flavor in quilts.  I have some beautiful southwest fabrics.  One of these days I'll make one.


I love these kokopellis in the center panel.  Beautiful quilting and texture.


This was such a pretty Dresden plate, and the quilting was unbelievable.



The applique on this next one was so beautifully done.  I've never done this kind of needle-turn applique, but I'm getting to a place where I think I'd like to give it a try.



I love all the colors and different blocks in this next one and the crystals were very tastefully done.



I was sorry that this next one was folded under at the bottom.  It's very striking, and the piecing . . . oh my!  The color is really striking.



Since it's nearly noon and I'm still sitting around in my pajamas, I guess I'll stop for the day.  There are still many more to show you and the best are yet to come.

Today I'm hoping to get a good start on finishing the last of the blocks for my Sunshine on My Shoulders quilt.  I'm so ready to be finished with it.  I love the quilt, but I'm sick to death of working on it.  And . . . I suppose I'll make a stab at doing some housework too.  Quilting . . . housework . . . quilting . . . housework.  Which one would you do first?

Given a choice I will read until my eyeballs dry and fall out !~! I will bypass food as long as there’s lots of water to be drunk, too.

Beautiful work on these quilts, Barb. Thanks for taking such great pictures and sharing them with us.

A half hour of running around like a loon clearing clutter and pushing dust around should be enough. If you don't quilt the creativity stuck inside can be dangerous. LOL. Again every quilt is stunning, I'm loving this little show, keep em coming.
