Here in San Luis Obispo, the five local guilds come together every 2 years for a combined guild quilt show. It is called Seven Sisters Quilt Show after the small local mountain range. Putting their efforts together brings a larger number of good vendors and makes for an awesome show of quilts. This weekends' show was the second and is as delightful and inspiring, if not more, than the first. I took a friend who has not made quilts before with me today and had a great time.
I'm showing pictures of a few quilts...not even half decent photography and unfortunately, no names... but just some quilts I liked. This first quilt was hung high from the ceiling but you could still get the vibrant effect from the Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
This one I liked for the colorful machine quilting..which of course I couldn't seem to capture. But the piecing was interesting as well.
This was pieced by a mom just starting to quilt and then sent to her daughter who did an awesome job quilting it on her longarm with colorful thread and artistic representation of the flowers.
The next 2, I liked partly just for the use of plaid..a favorite..in the barns and in the bottom right flower in the 2nd quilt.
This last one I liked for the creative blocks within the houses and for the Amish buggy in the left hand corner.
Lots of quilters having alot of fun with fabric...and making for a unifying and inspirational day.
I was excited when my friend bought her first little kit to make a snowman wallhanging...a new quilter born today :-)
Tomorrow...a word about the fun things I bought!
