The AQS Quilt show was in Chattanooga back in September and I am still amazed at the beautiful pieces of work I saw. I am very, very, very new to quilting and I'm still determining if quilting is something that I'd like to do. I would love to believe that I could produce art of this quality and I'd be thrilled just to get to the honorable mention section! These were some of my favorites from the show.
I must start off with the group I think steals the show every time... The Tentmakers of Cairo. This handmade beauty took my breath away.
I purchased the stencil for this tree and I am looking forward to making something out of it.
This pi quilt really spoke to the engineering geek in me. It was only on my second visit that I noticed the digits of pi in the border of the quilt. Awesome!
This piece was just gray and beautiful and I completely agreed with it's win of Best Use of Color.
This quilted portrait was nothing short of amazing. The beaded layers really made this stand out. I was surprised not to see an award badge attached.
More gray loveliness! Not only was this hand quilted but some of the elements were crocheted on. I would redecorate if it meant I could bring this home.
I have a few more pieces from the show that I want to show you but I'm holding on to them. I am truly going to turn the inspiration into real-to-me projects. At least I'm going to try. More to come soon!
