The Beautiful Ones

I’m immediately enticed by applique.  I can spot an applique quilt across a stadium (assuming I have my glasses on and I can find a stadium…haven’t been to many but market must be about the size of one!)  I saw this quilt the minute I walked in the door…can’t believe I didn’t get a full photo!  I think I was too excited about the applique!


The flowers were cross-stitched by hand…

…and just look at the quilting!

Right next to this beauty was this one with the backing painted to match the front…

…and the quilting was amazing!

Of course this was my favorite because of the subject…enlarge this photo and you’re in for a treat!

I finally thought to take a photo of the information on the quilt…

Then across the way this beauty caught my eye…see the pink?

I walked up for some close-up shots…


…now read the sign! You won’t believe it!

Congratulations to the artists who had a quilt in the special exhibit section!  They were stunning!

Of course every good thing must end…

with the traditional Moda photo…

…and tear down.  It’s so much faster to take a booth down than it is to put it up!

Salt Lake you were so gracious and beautiful!

…thank you for your hospitality!  At the end of it all we were so tired it was good to be on the plane home!

Oh wait!  I forgot to show you another cute little group and do some giveaways!

Coming next post…

  • mimi'sdarlins - You changed your blog format with no preceding fanfare? Or did I miss something in a previous post? Anyhow, I love the beautiful photos in your heading! Reminded me that at last week’s quilt meeting the owner of my LQS passed around your Bitty Bunny that she had just made…judging by the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’, she probably sold out the patterns that day :-)

  • Sue M - As usual, love your sharing with us. Quilts were gorgeous. On the first quilt with the flowers, it looked like the petals were wool. Am I correct? Gorgeous quilts. Just gorgeous.ReplyCancel

  • Nancy C. in Utah - Oh my gosh Anne, Thank you so much for sharing these photos with us. They are all just breath taking. I must admit though that the three that really stole my heart were the baskets of cross stitched appliqued flowers (didn’t catch a title on that one), Majestic Bugs…I adore anything with dragonfly’s in it, and of course, my all time favorite “I’m Watching You”. Now I have to tell you something funny about that quilt…I have been looking at lots of picture from Market, because I always enjoy them, but since it was here where I live, it seemed a bit more special. Anyway, I had noticed that this picture of an adorable furry baby with it’s chin on the couch kept showing up in the middle of lots the quilt pictures I was finding posted. I really didn’t realize I was quite so ‘thick’, but yours is the first photo of this quilt that made me realize it was not a picture of someones pet! I honestly thought that this adorable pet photo just happened to be popping up everywhere for some strange reason, but that was okay because I loved the seeing it, LOL. Such amazing talent it boggles my mind! Thanks for clearing up that little mystery for me. Great picture of the city too and it looks like it was snowing a bit when you flew out. Hugs…ReplyCancel
