AQS Syracuse

I've found a few quilts I really love -  aside from mine of course.

This is a stunner. Hand appliqué'd. Possibly my favorite here.

It's called Grandmother's Cabin by Rahna Walker Summerlin.

Simply outstanding.

It seems my favorites this year were traditional. Here's another that was completely made by hand. Notice how beautifully flat this hangs.

There were a couple of "modern" quilts in the show and was another of my absolute favorites. 

This won one of the really big prizes, and was totally awesome.

My son says he loves that when I go over the top I keep going, but these two ladies took that concept to a whole new level. 

I had to take a selfie with my Black and White Crayons. 

I met these two ladies from the Martelli Company and they wanted to hear the story of the chicken quilt. As you can tell we had a grand time. 

That's it for now.

*** sorry if this post looks weird. I haven't quite worked out how to arrange photos when I post from my iPad.  I'll fix it when I get home. 😊

The twins in green and blue, all they need is a trolley on wheels!!! Love your quilt hanging up there with the others.

The quilt of the pillows and fabric looks so life-like. Amazing work.

Ooooh - that woman in green really did go waaaaay over the top, didn't she?

And of course the ladies from Martelli would have loved your crayons quilt too, being aficioandos of black and white!
