Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival Wrap Up

Well, we are at the end of our journey with the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival. I do hope you enjoyed seeing these quilts. There were tons more, but one really needs more than one day at this festival to take everything in.

I will start off the final tour with a quilt from my friend and fellow Quilting Arts TV artist, Diane Doran.

She has a new DVD out where she teaches you how to make quilts like this. Stunning! You can hop over to Quilting Arts TV to find it. She is a great teacher and a really wonderful lady.

Enjoy the rest of the show!

 Riding a snail!! I love this!!

I remember when there use to be lots and lots of dolls at this festival. Where did all the doll artists go?

 Doesn't it look like the cat is scared of "The Crazy Bunny Lady?" hee,hee,hee.

This one was one of my most favorites.

 I think this is so magical!

 This little quilt was made by my dear friend and fellow "bunny lady," Shannon Shirley.

See you back here on Wednesday. Now I'm off to have some tea.

OK, you've done it again. You have shared some of the most outrageous and beyond understanding quilts ever! These artists certainly take quilting to another dimension: THE THIRD DIMENSION! WOW! I've never seen sculpted quilting! Aren't the arts so healing my friend?

Hoping you are warm and well. Much love, Anita

Thanks so much for sharing all the wonderful quilts from the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. I especially liked Catastrophe, because my cat Lady Jane Grey "helps" me quilt.

Wonderful - especially the cat - that was ace !Lovely to see the dolls too, especially the snail rider. Doll making seems less popular than it was, I think, its very sad.
