Lots of Quilting Eye Candy

I went to the GSAQG (Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild) 2011 quilt show yesterday and my eyes almost popped out as I was viewing over 280 quilts on display.  It was a wonderful show and the talent was impressive. 

This year's theme was  Call to Color celebrating out Red White Blue.

This one included pictures of all of our Presidents......impressive indeed!  I should have taken a close up too.....sigh!    Title reads "We The People changed the history of the United States."   Blue Ribbon winner!

Great Idea for using the GO Drunkard's Path Die.  (You knew I'd have to sneak in talking about the GO somewhere, didn't you?)

Beautiful Baltimore Album type Christmas Applique ribbon winner!

Fun, colorful, whimsical........BUGS Quilt!  Darling!

Such precise work......beautiful! Another ribbon winner!

I should have taken a close up of the Christmas doves on this one.....Nice change of color for a Christmas Quilt......lovely!

Loved the thread work on this one.....Wow!

Old Sol was awarded with a special judges ribbon......unbelieveable!

Fun!  Being a cat lover, this one made me smile.....and won a ribbon!

There was a separate category for machine embroidery quilts too.  This was stunning and my picture just didn't capture the shading on the roses.  Honorable mention ribbon.

Snowmen hand embroidered winter quilt, ribbon winner.....look at the close up next picture!

Just look at this quilting....all done on a regular sewing machine.  Small, precise......took hours and hours.

Hope you enjoyed seeing some of the quilts, and I'll share more of them with you tomorrow and my BIG purchases at the vendors booths.

Thanks for visiting.

  5. Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Have a look at my site; catering manager jobs
