MQX Quilt Festival/New England

I have been looking forward to this quilt show for months! It was held in Manchester, NH April 10-13. I signed up for 2 classes. One class was all about Free Form Feathers with Sally Terry. The second class was with Kim Brunner where she told us all about Building Blocks for Good Design. I had 2 friends going with me and couldn't wait.

 However, the best part of the show was meeting Sally! I had "met" Sally on Twitter. We were both quilters and both from Massachusetts. She planned on attending MQX also. Perfect time to meet. You can find Sally's blog here. We had a great time! I'm so happy we met. We're already planning to meet again in the near future! I'm looking forward to more fun times with Sally! As you can see, Sally is standing in front of the quilt she had accepted into the show. Her quilt was gorgeous!

I'm going to post pictures of some great quilts. The quilts were phenomenal! I was in awe of the beautiful and intricate stitching on these works of art. As usual, I do not have the names of who entered the quilt. The hall was so packed! I wouldn't have been able to write the names down and keep track of who made them. Enjoy the quilts! I surely did!




 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There you have it! I wish I could have taken more pictures and posted even more quilts. It was a wonderful show. Hope you all have a chance to attend some day. I'm planning on attending once again next year!

Next post will be all about my classes and the stuff I bought! It's all still in my bag. My husband is out right now so it may be a good time to put it all away!
