Yesterday, I went to the Charlotte Wood Quilt Show in Danville. I'd never been to a quilt show before & honestly had never cared to go to one before my newfound quilting obsession. Some of the quilts were incredible. I was so sad that my camera kept flashing to change my battery pack, otherwise I would have taken more time to capture some of the amazing detail.
These quilts were some of my favorites:
I love these quilts just the way they are, but I also wonder what they would look like if they were done in some more funky, modern fabrics.
This quilt was so interesting & had a lot of detail. There were so many squares in it to make up the background, & I especially loved the flowers at the top. They were all sewn onto the front of the quilt with beautiful stitching around the petals.
I dragged Scott along with me (actually, I told him that we didn't have to go, but he insisted b/c he knew it would mean a lot to me - what a great guy, not many guys would stand to walk around looking at quilts for an hour just to make me happy).
I thought this quilt was my favorite until I turned the corner & saw the next one (but by then, I was lucky to be getting any pictures before my camera turned off, which is why I didn't make Scott take my picture with the next quilt).
My favorite one: The featured designer at the show was Sandy Klop (who Scott & I spent quite a bit of time talking to). She designs vintage fabrics & quilt patterns, & this one was my absolute favorite of hers (& the entire show). This reminds me of a quilt that my great-grandmother Hazel made (that my mom now has hanging in her home). I also love quilts with white - it's so fresh. I think I might attempt a quilt like this one day - if I can get past the fact that I would have to cut out a lot of little pieces for it.
