Yesterday and today was the annual Colorado Quilting Council's Quilt-A-Fair. My friend, MagicLady, who travels a lot for her job, flew in last night just to go to the show with me -- she flies out again tomorrow. We had a great time! I love to go to shows just to see the quilts. And having the vendors under one roof is an added plus.
The quilts are all hung from the rafters, so taking photos is a bit of a challenge. This year the show was curated from the Steamboat Springs Quilt Guild. It was interesting that of the 56 quilts shown only one was handwork. It was hand embroidered and hand quilted. I can remember back when there was such an uproar at shows like this when someone entered a quilt that was quilted by a long arm, because hand quilting was the norm. Quilting sure has come a long way. And isn't the quilt pictured a beautiful example of value shading?
