The Dallas Quilt Show





The Dallas Quilt Show was this past weekend and a great show as always. The creativity was amazing and I took lots of pictures. I thought I'd share my favorites here today. The Best of Show is an amazing, whimsical, and very well done quilt by Kelly Monroe of Arlington, Tx. An excellent choice for BoS.
My favorite quilt was by Laurie Evans of Austin (a friend) and was coincidentally my favorite quilt at the Austin show back in September. Laurie is a genius with color and design (which makes her a double genius in my book). I love this quilt!
The other two quilts, that also made my skirt fly up, were both made by Karen K Stone. I love what she does with color also. (I think I have a theme going here.) Her quilts have lots of movement.
It was a very inspiring show and I now have fingers that are itching to sew. I think I have a little something in mind. Happy Quilting!

These are gorgeous! I am so blown away by what other people do with fabric and thread! (By the way, I think you should enter one of your gorgeous quilts!) I am eagerly looking forward to going to the Quilter's Heritage show in a few weeks, (hope I remember to bring my camera). It's the one big quilt show to come to my area. I really enjoy the Quilt National exhibition part, (no pictures allowed for that one though) And of course the vendors!!!! Yippee!!
