A Quilty Event--more fun in Kansas City!

Kansas City Star Publishers have their offices just blocks from the Convention Center in Kansas City where Quilt Market was held last weekend. They invited their authors and shop owners who sell their books to attend "A Quilty Event", celebrating their involvement in the quilting industry. The reception included a display of over 150 quilts from their books. Oh my, the eye candy!  What a thrill to see these gorgeous quilts in person!
 Like these from Barb Adams:
Celebration of American Life,
 Peppermint and Holly,
 Love Letters,
 Garden Glow,
  and Trick or Treat.
From Alma Allen:
Feather Your Nest
and No Place Like Home.
 From Maggie Bonanomi:
 and Buttonwood bedcovers. 
From Linda Brannock:
 American Beauty.
From Betsy Chutchian:
From Lynda Hall:
 A Little Porch Time.
From Bonnie Hunter:
Pineapple Crazy.
 (Look at the size of those pieces!)
From Edie McGinnis:
Bird in a Cherry Tree.
From Jan Patek:
Across the Wide Missouri
and We Gather Together.
From Jeanne Poore:
 Star Steppin'.
From Laurie Simpson:
Victory Girls.
And this designer's work looks vaguely familiar...

my Welcome Home quilt.
 Barbara Brackman contributed this quilt:
Death Becomes Her.
(Warning: if you're a Sunbonnet Sue fan, you might find the following blocks offensive!
I, personally find them hilarious--but then, I do have a bent sense of humour.)
 Doug Weaver, Publisher of Kansas City Star, welcomed us to the reception.
after which, we wined and dined.
A wonderful evening!
