QUILT SHOW

Saturday I met Love at the Arlington Quilt Show and we had a great time!  We saw so many wonderful quilts and here are some of my favorites.

This quilt of little dresses was just adorable!

 Love and I agreed that this would be a great pattern to use for an appliqued quilt with the blocks and pieces being very big.  

This quilt was absolutely stunning!!

Look at the eagle quilted in the design.

 Also, a liberty bell!

 This baby quilt was just amazing!  

 Look at this border!  Wouldn't you love to make a border like that?

 Another gorgeous quilt with fabulous quilting!

 Here's a close-up view.  maybe if you click on the picture you can see the quilting.

Love and I both would like to make this quilt.  In the blue border there are patriotic phrases quilted, such as "In God we Trust."

We both made a few purchases from the vendors (of course) and I had my scissors sharpened, then we went to lunch.  It was a very good day!

Thank you for the quilt show with wonderful pictures of the detail!

Making purchases from the vendors are always so much fun and getting your scissors sharpened! Great idea for taking them along with you!

Oh, I am so jealous! You are getting to spend so much time with Love! The quilts are wonderful. The first one reminds me of a window treatment I saw at the Phila. Flower Show one year. Little doll dresses threaded on a line and used as a valance. It was so unique and definitely matches that quilt.
