Quilt show viewing.... On vacation.

Because I am away from home, and missing my regular guild meeting, I decided to take in a local quilt show near Ocala, Florida.   It was a nice show with some vendors, a lovely boutique and about 140 quilts of all kinds.   Being mostly an art quilter, I look for them and didn't see too many, but here are a few that did catch my eye.

Because I love circles and arcs, a quilt like this would always catch my eye.   Love the variations in color!

This quilt as done with a special ruler and only one fabric.  Not a typical gradation, this fabric did go from light on one edge, to dark on the other, with a pattern somewhere between.

Loved the dimension on this quilt with the added 3d hydrangea petals.  The birds eye appliquéd, so they could be stuffed,   Very effective.

This was a Bargello quilt.....just spectacular.

I don't do crazy quilts, but this was probably one of the highlights of the show.

These were a couple of cute quilts.   One is a beach scene with 3 d shirts hanging on a clothes line, the other just a cute Halloween quilt.
