More Quilt Festival Pictures

So this week I thought I would share more of the pictures I took at quilt festival. It really was a great time. Before I left, I cleaned out the clutter in Bunnyville to make room for some new things that I'm working on. Of course, my two fuzzy kids are nosey and have to be in the middle of everything. Here is Chloe doing her part to "dig" through the misc. scraps and help me organize.
This is my sewing table. It has doors on each end that open up and the cabinet goes all the way through. I pulled stuff off the bottom shelf to organize.
Of course Razzy thought it was a good place for a nap!
So on with the photos.
Isn't this amazine! It was huge. So much detail and color!
Well deserving of a first place ribbon!
Loved these horses. Big wallhanging!
I'm always one to pop open the bubbly and celebrate something!
Loved the design and rich colors of this wallhanging.
This quilt was huge! I couldn't fit it all in the camera view!
Gorgeous use of color and love the fleur-de-lis!

Sweet and pretty wallhanging. Reminds me of Spring
here in NC.
Just beyond fabulous! Incredible workmanship as shown by the
blue ribbon! Huge quilt.

This is when I wish I could paint. This artist used
paints and applique to create this beautiful piece.
So peaceful looking.
I thought the stone detail of this piece was truly incredible.

Love this piece for the interesting center as well as the intricate border detail.
Sweet little deer.

This quilt just made me happy to look at it.
Incredible color! Again, that painting thing. Man I wish I could paint.
Loooooove this applique!

Looooove this border. So much quilting in this piece!
This quilt was a pattern that was done by one of my favorite designers, Robyn Pandolph.
Very folk arty.
The eyes on this cat just grabbed you and made you stare. This was a huge wall hanging. About the width of a sofa! Incredible.
This was another incredible jacket. So much detail and so much quilting. I love it!

This piece was sooooo cool! It reminds me of some sort of dinnerware. Dutch maybe?
An upclose of the center. Truly a work of art.

Well, that's all for this week. Hope you have fun and enjoy the sun being around longer in the evening. I personally love it!
Check back with me on Wednesday.

The work that went into those quilts is phenomenal! I just love those painting/applique ones. The woman in the field of flowers, the horses and the butterflies and flowers are my favorites. Just gorgeous.
Glad the bunnies had some fun cleaning with you. I think Razzy needs a bed on that bottom shelf,lol.
