Interesting Quilts from Rosemont Quilt Show

I thought I'd share a few of the interesting quilts, at least I thought they were interesing.... from the International Quilt Show in Rosemont, IL

It never ceases to amaze me the work and the creativity that these people have.  I am continually in awe of their talents.







This quilt above was quilted by my friend Elvira!





And Elvira quilted this one too!



See, even Bluebonnets made it all the way to Illinois!  Made my heart smile!



I knew William would like this one.  He likes city scape type things.





The yo-yo's are only about 3/4" in diameter.  Now's that's a lot of yo-yo's!



Hollie Liles Kelly aren't you glad I didn't quilt your wedding dress?






Another amazing quilt from the Japanese quilters.  They do such tiny, teadeous work.  The embellishments were outstanding!





Pretty neat idea... Vintage photos printed on old flour and sugar sacks  Talk about a "Throwback Thursday"!





Bonnie Hunter wouldn't have to cut this shirt up.  Just applique it on... 



Apparently I forgot to take a photo of the credit sheet.  But the background half square triangles were also made from re-cycled shirts and then hand dyed.



This same display was at the International Quilt Festival in Houston.  But you can never get tired of looking at red and white quilts.














I am extremely fascinated by miniatures.  I love them!








The strips in this Pineapple miniature were not even 1/4" wide!  


This was only a tip of the iceburg of the amazing quilts at the show.  I hope you enjoyed the little preview.
