Here are a few pictures from the Northern Star Show…
I often find it surprising what appeals to me as a quilter and why I like it. Each quilt – whether intended as art or not evokes some kind of reaction – I was quite surprise to have such a strong reaction to Benedicte Caniell’s quilt “Unit 14”. I don’t know if the circles are appliquéd or pieced in…this quilt just appealed to me.
If you have a chance head over to Mary Anne’s blog and see her finished Generations Unite Quilt. This quilt represents 6 generations of quilters in Mary Anne’s family. Some of the blocks in the quilt were started by Mary Anne’s mom. She has a whole presentation including this quilt. If your guild is looking for a presenter I would heartily recommend Mary Anne.
I have a few close up pictures of some Sharon Schamber quilts…she was at NSQG as a special guest/speaker. Her quilting is more amazing in person than in the photos in any of the magazines. She gave some great tips for approaching different quilting techniques.
More pictures over the next few days when I have some more time. I finished a Benartex quilt Saturday morning before I headed out the door to go work in the quilt shop. It arrived today much my relief and the delight of the folks who work there…they liked it a lot. As soon as the pattern gets posted I’ll send you over for a picture. My next gig with them is to design a quilt. The quilt is designed, I need to figure out yardage and get the fabric needed and more wool batting.
