Heart of the Triad Quilt show

My Mom and I attended the Heart of the Triad Quilt show on Saturday, May 14. This guild KNOWS how to put on a show!  Only guild members could enter quilts, but there were so many beautiful, and varied quilts to enjoy. There were also several vendors and yes, we bought fabric!

I am sharing some closeups that I took, mostly as quilting inspiration.

 I love the combination of grid work and tiny stipple texture. Just works with the fabric and applique!
 I kept going back to this quilt. That appliqued dogwood blossom is BEAUTIFUL!
 This wall quilt was made from scraps of the quilt maker's father's work clothes and the fabrics from the lawn chairs he would sit on at the end of the day. I adore the denim pocket!
 The quilting just set the pinwheels off perfectly!
This was the quilt maker's FIRST whole cloth quilt. Simply stunning.

So much inspiration in one place. 
I am already looking forward to their show next year!

I think they have the BEST show. Think I counted 14 quilts which were quilted by Theresa DeWalt, don't know when she ever sleeps!
