We enter to find vendor booths and off to one side is this "Icicles" display from the Road to California quilt conference.
|Fiber artists from across the country were asked to create a dimensional icicle from six to ten feet in length and no more than 18" in width.|
|The requirements of the challenge was to use an artistic vision of quilted icicles in blue, white and silver. The exhibit is called "California Ice Storm".|
|Hoffman Quilt Challenge 2011 show pieces were on display.|
|You, too, can work with the featured fabrics for 2012 challenge.|
|This show winner was crafted by Sherry Reynolds of Laramie, Wyoming.|
|Entitled "My Wyoming Home"|
|Don't you just love this bug jar quilt? There are a couple of gals in our ex-pat group making these--what fun to look for all these bug fabrics! Jan Weber of Centennial, CO made the quilt and Karen Farnham did the long arm quilting.|
|Bunny Hill Designs is the creative mind behind this pattern. But, the hands of Elizabeth Purkett, Longmont, CO did all the work.|
|This was a block of the month, entitled "Le Jardin" from The Fat Quarter Shop and the quilting was accomplished by Kim Waite Dreamcatchers Quilting, Mead, CO.|
|Nancy Pennington, Fort Collins, CO used "Legacy of Stars" pattern from July/August 2002 Quilter Newsletter. This quilt uses over 600 half square triangles. Nancy completed the quilt in 2009.|
|This quilt is made by the hands of Nancy Pennington--what a quilter! This was a mystery from Bonnie Hunter's website Quiltville. This pattern is called "Roll Cotton Boll Roll"--quite the challenge too as there are over 600 1.5" half square triangles!|
We didn't purchase much. Judy did find wonderful new fabric (new to us anyway) to make a great bag. Other purchases were minimal--hope those vendors didn't rely on us to make a profit!
