I’m very fortunate that one of the premier machine quilting shows in the country is in my backyard every year. It is HMQS, or Home Machine Quilting Show. This year’s theme was Quilter’s Symphony, and, believe me, it was a gorgeous symphony of color, pattern and texture! I am constantly amazed at the talented machine quilters there are out there, and their work is unbelievable! So, my friend, Jane, and I headed out yesterday to enjoy the show. Here are some of the greats! (There are too many fabulous ones to post them all… And, sorry for the photo quality.)
And a detail:
There was a special exhibit by Judi Madsen, shown here. I loved her work! It was fabulous.
And another by this same pair:
This one is amazing with widely spaced appliqué to leave room for the fabulous quilting:
This one is just what the title says:
This won the Best Combination award: (All of the gray-looking parts are silver thread.)
Detail and I loved the binding detail in this one!
This was in the theme category:
And, finally, with no surprise to me, the Best of Show award went to Sue McCarty, about whom I posted previously, the Master of Long-Arm quilting herself! And, as usual, her work is totally amazing! Her vision for this quilt was from medieval British history.
And a couple of details:
Hope you enjoyed a TINY amount of the wonderful quilt show at HMQS! I didn’t even post all the photos I took! If you’re ever in Salt Lake City this time of year, this is a must see event!
