I went with wonderful intentions of taking lots of photos. I knew there would be beautiful quilts and lots of inspiration. Of course as usual, I got caught up in the moment and rarely remembered to take pictures...even when I had my camera in my hand.
Here are the four pictures I actually remembered to take:
|There is something about those butterflies and the quilting I loved.|
|I thought this one was fun and whimsical!|
|Isn't this one gorgeous??|
Now for the background on the quilt below: The woman who made and quilted this one is Becky Collis, she owns Collis County Quilting I met Becky through my sister, Kim. Kim found Becky on Facebook. Turns out we went to high school together, of course they are "much" older than me! Kim figured since she kind of knew her through high school, it must be safe to have Becky quilt her quilt tops. I think Becky has quilted three or four quilts for Kim and they all have turned out beautiful. Anyway, Becky had a finished quilt for Kim and they decided to meet when we all went to the festival. Becky mentioned she had two or three quilts in the show but neglected to mention she won 1st Place with this quilt! I talked with Becky about fangirling all the famous quilters there and she admitted she did it too, but I should have been fangirling on her and I didn't even realize it!
