The Flight of the Eagles quilt you see above is just one of many masterpieces that decorated the vas space at Farmpark this year.
I try to never miss this show and I often take a class from one of the local or celebrity instructors they bring in from other areas of the country. The show this year was smaller than most, but I didn't mind that at all. I found much to make my jaw drop and left feeling good about being part of the stitching community at large.
I thought I'd share a few of my favorite picks from this awe inspiring display. I wasn't too particular about noting "winners" but you can view the entire list HERE.
I also thought the layout of this quilt was very interesting and unique. Amazing how simple squares can turn into such a work of art!
The combination of patchwork, appliqués, painted scenery, and 3-D accents made this a mesmerizing work of art. In particular, I thought the tiny blocks framing the piece were a stroke of genius. My "make it match" brain would have opted for something solid but I think you'll agree that the patchwork here was a very ingenious and artistic choice.
Now, if you have any quilting stories you'd like to share, I'd love to see them posted here!!!
