Awesome Quilt Show in Des Moines!

casiSeptember 28, 2011

Just spent the day in Des Moines with some of my quilt club! What an awesome show! You would think I'd be inspired but I came home pretty discouraged! There is a lot of talent out there......wish I had some! lol No, it was fun. Some of the quilts on display I wouldn't even classify as quilts...they were works of Art! Beautiful fabric! Lots of ideas....we all wanted to run home and sew!

I was at the Jacksonville FL quilt show last weekend and had the same mixture of emotions. Everything from 'I'll NEVER be that good!' to 'My last quilt is more show-worthy than THAT' to 'I've GOT to make one like this'. The colors, patterns and fresh ideas are almost overwhelming. Every time I go to a big show I realize I should be taking the following week off work so I can sew, sew, sew. I came home with new fabric and ideas for a couple new projects.
