Well I am finally able to post some shots of the Exhibition. I am so proud of it with all the hard work of my students so seeing it finally hanging here is amazing. My photos don't do it justice as they keep the light here very subdued for the quilts but I have taken lots of photos of the walls and individual quilts so will be able to send them to all my participants
Quilt Market was amazing too. So many fabric manufacturers and gadget people showing their new lines and I have discovered quite a few new things which I hope to be able to add to Dyed & Gone to Heaven in the near future.
I won't be bringing in these but I thought you would like to see these amazing little felt items from a Japanese company. Yes they are made of felt!
It didn't seem as busy as usual but this was late in the day
Loved these little mexican decorations
My friend Sue De Vanny has this wonderful quilt in the Text on Textiles exhibition.
Exhibitors go to great lengths to draw attention to their booths. Even to the extent of bringing in a car.
So there is just a touch of Market but with Festival opening to night everything is about to go wild. The award ceremony last night was astounding. Japanese quilts seem to be scooping the pool but they were all awe inspiring. If you want to see all the winners go to the Show Website.
