Because I was overwhelmed by the crowd, I spent almost no time looking at anything offered by the vendors. When I left, I still had grocery shopping to do. By the time I got home, I was completely wiped out. I ended up taking a two-hour nap, which I'll probably regret when I'm lying awake in the middle of the night tonight. Fortunately, there's nothing going on early tomorrow morning. Before I start showing you pictures from the show, however, I want to back up to yesterday in my own sewing room.
There was plenty of time to sew the binding on the Written in Thread quilt.
As long as I was in a binding mood, I also sewed the binding onto the FMQ Stitching Sampler.
The Written in Thread quilt is small, just 22 x 28 inches, and so there was plenty of time to hand sew the binding this morning before the show.
Here's how it looks from the back.
Tomorrow morning I should have plenty of time to sew the binding on the other once since it's even smaller.
As for the quilt show, I'll show the quilts in batches day by day until I've shown them all. For today, I'm starting with the quilts by the "featured quilter," Lisa Jenni. There were many more quilts on display from Lisa. I just picked the ones that most caught my eye.
I'll put the information about each quilt first, then show the quilt, and in some cases, I'll show you some detail from the quilt.
I found myself wondering how she did those circles so that they appear to be unattached.
I like how she's quilted the fish differently.
That's all I have for today. There will be several days of quilts, so stick around.
