Lowell Quilt Festival


I went to the Lowell Quilt Festival this past Friday. I took some pictures to share with you all. There were some amazing quilts on display. I managed to take a picture of some of these quilts, however there were many more quilts that I just couldn't get to. The above picture shows the first aisle as you enter the quilt display.


I loved these two quilts being displayed side by side. I loved the colors of the pieced quilt. I admired the detail of the portrait quilt. I did not document who made these quilts or what awards were won. I just took photos of what appealed to me.


Again, I was drawn to the colors of both of these quilts. There were so striking!

This is one of the award winning quilts. It was just amazing! It was quite difficult to take this picture. There was always a crowd of people around it.

This quilt was beautiful! I have no idea how I would even begin to make this quilt. Just gorgeous! Whoever made it must be very talented!!

Hope you enjoyed this little taste of a very amazing quilt show. The vendors were wonderful. I bought some lovely fabric as well as the third book of patterns using the Twister ruler. I also bought some yarn! I almost bought some lovely jewelry. I'm going to a very large quilt show this coming Friday and felt I should leave something to buy! I'll be attending the Mancuso show in Manchester, NH. You'll get to see a whole new set of pictures!
