World Quilt Expo wowsers

So much beauty at the Manchester NH World Quilt Show a few weeks ago.  I will let the snapshots speak for themselves.  My routine is usually to take a full snap of the quilt, followed by the signage, followed by detail shots.  This is so that I don't have any confusion once I'm home as to which names belong with which quilts.  I do all of this very quickly and I'm not going for great photos, just memory-joggers.  (Please, if you pin any of these pictures, include the quilter's name!).






















 It was such a treat to meet Christine Wickert, the creator of the stunningly beautiful "My Version of a Persian", which won best in country:



























As usual, after a show like this, I go home feeling like putting together a nice 4-patch;).

  5. Thanks for the view and the details. It makes me wish I could read all the Japanese texts on the quilts here. It is so nice to see what the quilter was thinking.
