Day 360 AQS Quilt Show

Well, that was a bit disappointing. I’m sure that I would have had a better time if I had someone to go with and/or could have gone to some of the out-lying events… like the event last night at Hamilton Place mall with 50 quilts from the area quilters. I did see one fantastic quilt- in the National Quilt Museum section where we were not allowed to take pictures. But it was featured in one of the AQS books… so I bought the book… and found a really nice large picture on line to show you:

Autumn Lily by Mami Noda. Click on it to get the BIG picture.

Most of the quilts were machine pieced, machine quilted, machine embellished and so on. It just felt as though my type of quilting doesn’t have any place in the quilt world anymore. Even most of the shopping was geared to the machine people. I did see a kind of funny quilt- it was machine done but it had a box on it and the words “Before you can think outside the box- you must first have the box” Oddly, I felt like that was what was wrong with most of the quilts I saw- they had either forgotten the box or never had one.

Some of the quilts and sights:

Also? A bus pulled out in front of me this morning causing some very creative driving on my part to avoid an accident… as well as a few minutes sitting there calming down afterwards. As it happens, I ended up in a small pull off on the side of the road so I could just sit there. (Small favors!) When I told Em, she didn’t even bother to manufacture any concern about it. *sigh*

I did run into Emily’s first grade teacher- she was taking a personal day to go to the quilt show 🙂
