Some quilt show photos

I've been lazy about posting. I was away the whole of last week at my daughter up north taking care of my three month old grandson and spending time with his 2 1/2 yo sister. My daughter went back to work, so this was a good chance to spend some time with them. She goes to gan (nursery school) and he's going to a babysitter now.

When I went to visit my grandson (and daughter and son in law) in Miami Beach in November, I managed to choose a great week to be there. The World Quilt show was in West Palm Beach that weekend and I was thrilled to be able to get there on Friday.

I took photos of a lot of the quilts that appealed to me and here are some of them. Remember, click on any photo to enlarge.

This one was Best of Show. Just look at that quilting and the tiny stippling!

Best Use of Color:

Best Machine Workmanship:


Best of Country, Australia. You have to look at that detail in the closeup!

The next three did not get any awards, I just really like them.
