DALLAS QUILT SHOW, 2014

Friday I was a volunteer at the Dallas Quilt Show and I took some pictures of the quilts that were my favorites.  There were 400 quilts hanging in the show and I just took pictures of some of the ones I liked best.  Most of my favorites were traditional quilts, but not all.  

After taking the pictures, I noticed the "Show Rules and Etiquette" column in the show booklet.  It said that we need to get permission from the quilt makers if we want to post them on the internet.  So, yesterday morning I started emailing the makers of the quilts.  I only had the guild directory to go by and since a lot of the quilts I liked were made by non-members, I wasn't able to email them for their permission.  Therefore, the number of pictures that I can display is greatly reduced.  I hope you enjoy these few anyway.


2nd place in the same category as my quilt



First place in the same category as my quilt.




This was one of the "Judge's Choice" quilts.




All the quilts were amazing, however, I am sad that I am not able to show two of my very favorites.  The Best of Show quilt was "out of this world" amazing!  If anyone wants to see it, I will email it to you.

Thanks for so many lovely comments on my winning quilt!

Oops, I didn't read the etiquette rules in the program and I've already posted a ton of photos from the show. But I am making sure I mention that they are from the show and NOT mine! Pretty sure the winners are on the Dallas guild website so you could direct folks there.
