The quilt show was hosted by the Amherst Quilters' Guild and held at the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village. I didn't realize until after I left the compound w/out getting my hand stamped that we could walk the village. Maybe this fall...
The main quilt display is hung in a central room and they are hung from the ceiling which I thought was a wonderful look. I do think some of the "aisles" were a bit narrow for the crowds and a bit dark for photos but given the choice, I think this might be my fav way to hang a show.
This was the best of show quilt. It was just gorgeous but you can see below just how tiny the pieces were.
There was just one hexie quilt...
But there were several bird quilts.
|This was actually a mini and hand quilted with 3D flowers|
|This bird was a woven background. I've used this technique before but never with the curved "seams."|
The guild had held a contest for "no touch" signs. I'm hoping you can enlarge this and read them:
This next one had to be my fav tho:
You're right, I'm likely never to do this kind of applique but I did enjoy the quilting itself. I think this was the only picture I took of quilting at the show. It's funny how some shows you photo the quilts and others you photo the quilting.
I loved the texture of the next quilt. I need to use this technique for something and soon. Maybe for a zippered bag?
I'll be posting more pictures later this week but if you can't wait, here is the guild's website with more.
