More from Market-Lots of Photos!

Quilt Market 2015

Good Morning, Quilters!

As promised, more from Quilt Market 2015.  (Tuesday Tutorials will resume next week.)

First, I’d like to correct a mistake from yesterday.  The lion quilt below “Born Free” was stitched by Denise Sargo.

The first four quilts in today’s post were part of an exhibit of prize-winning quilts from The International Quilt Association.

The rest of the quilts (prize-winning quilts without awards) were on display in the various vendor booths.

For each of the photos, I have supplied as much information as I have.

One thing that really impressed me was how much work goes into the planning and set-up of the booths.  (And to tear down on Sunday, too!)

Did I mention I took over 500 hundred photos?

More to come all week.

ONE MORE THOUGHT

Please take note of how the quilting effects the overall design.  Sometimes complex quilting adds a lot to the quilt, but often, like the quilt above, simple is best.

Quilting doesn’t have to be complicated to be BEAUTIFUL!  If you’re a beginner, take heart.

Inspired in Minnesota,

Lori

  1. These are the best pictures of the Quilt Show that I’ve seen. I loved seeing pictures of the celebrity quilters but this gives me an idea of what I would see if I could attend. Thanks.

  2. What beautiful quilts – not all to my taste some are a bit too ‘twee’ but I can still appreciate the skill involved. If the other 480 odd photo’s feature quilts as beautiful as these then we are in for a treat 🙂 Thank you for sharing as I live the other side of the pond there is very little chance of me getting to see this show in person.

  3. OMG !! You can take pictures for me anytime 🙂 Great work! I love the Piece O Cake, Becky Goldsmith Quilt and I love the Ella Blue Fabrics! Totally a Tula Pink Fan. Thanks so much. I can’t wait to see the rest of your wonderful photography ..Whoot Whoot !! I am excited.

  4. Lori,

    Thank you for your last line that “quilting doesn’t have to be complicated to be beautiful.

    I visit fmq blogs whose quilts are really densely quilted. They are exqusitely done and I admire the talent it takes, but they can also be very intimidating. Thank for giving the rest of us inspiration and confidence to quilt our own way. I’ve learned so much from you and have increased the designs I use and I’m perfectly satisfied with them even if they wouldn’t win any awards.

  5. Thank you for all the inspiration and support! I enjoy you with my morning coffee, and you always get my quilting juices going. Your pictures are beautiful!

  6. You are truly an artist in the way you capture the spirit of the subjects you photograph. Thank you for sharing your talents with us all.

  7. My gosh…the displays are so amazing! I’m glad you are sharing pics with us. Someday I hope to go. But for now I’ll dream and enjoy your pics! 🙂

  8. Very inspiring pictures. I really appreciate the pictures and the encouragement to ‘reach beyond’ my current comfort level.

  9. Thank you so much for sharing with us your enthusiasm. It is contagious. Excellent pictures.

  10. Thank you for all your efforts to take such stunning photos of these amazing quilts, so inspiring! in error I sent you a blank email, whoops. So many exciting new projects to consider, again, thanks!

    • Can you give us more information about the pattern designer and where to purchase the pattern?

  11. Thank you very much for sharing. It’s like we were at the market with you. Two notes: it’s Jeni Baker (not Jen)– she lives in Madison (so do I ) and the three quilts on the ladder are Lee Heinrich’s of Freshly Pieced (she lives in Milwaukee )

  12. I see a few garments in some of the booths. What role did they play in the displays? Were they illustrations of other ways to use that particular mfg’s fabrics, or were they illustrating embellishment with quilting?
