In Awe at NQA

It's impossible to describe the amazing masterpieces here at the National Quilting Association show in Columbus, Ohio, so I'll share a few pictures and let them speak for themselves (though the pictures can't begin to do them justice).

How about something fun, to start?

And something fanciful?

I love the colours and applique on this quilt...

But wait till you see how small the blocks are!!

Here's another mini.

And yet another.


And these just took my breath away.

I have to admit, when I look at these works of art, that after the awe and asking, "how'd she do that?", I mainly feel depressed. These quilts are so incredible... I could quilt a million years and never create anything a fraction as perfect as these. I have to remind myself that we each have our niche and to just enjoy and be grateful for the gifts we've each been given. Can anyone else out there relate?

  1. Those quilts are amazing!
    I know if I attempted something like that, it would be more naive folk art, I do not have to patience to be perfect;)
