My husband attended this show with me. He is beginning to realize I might have some artistic ability. I heard him say to one of his friends, “We’re in Auburn, NY. Beth has a quilt in a big show here. It isn’t the “Superbowl of Quilting,” but it is like the playoffs!” I remember telling him about Quilt National. When I realized he didn’t quite “get it,” I told him it is sort of like the Superbowl of Quilting! He got that and is now using sports analogies to explain to his guy friends about our travels to exhibits I’m in.
And now for the winners...(I lifted these words from Pam Holland’s blog. The images of the quilts are not for publication by anyone viewing this blog, please respect the rights of the original designers and creators. I’m sharing them for your sheer enjoyment.)
Best of Show—lots of surface design work (as you can see in the detail photo).
Award for Surface Design—loved the graffiti on the buildings.
If you get a chance to see this exhibit in person, do it! You won’t be disappointed. I’ll be posting some more pictures from the show later this week, so stay tuned. There are some FABULOUS quilts to come.
