Ann Arbor Area Quilt Show

Thursday, August 5, 2010

On Sunday afternoon, I visited the Ann Arbor Area Quilt Show. As always, getting to see a wide variety of gorgeous quilt is is always such an inspiring way to spend the day!

Here are some of my favorite quilts from the show:

I've been drawn to traditional quilts in modern colors lately and I love the look of this Irish Chain.

Debbie's Traffic Pattern quilt is one of my most favorite quilts in a very long time! The pattern is for sale here. She's in the Brighton Modern Quilters Guild with me, so I always get to see what she's been up to.

This Bargello patterned quilt photo is for Christine. I read on the description that this quilt design came in a kit from a Quilt Shop in Illinois (probably why it's identical to this quilt seen at the Oakland County Quilt Guild show I visited earlier this year). The quilter actually enlarged the pattern by 1.5 times, which is why it's slightly different than the other quilt in the link.

Me really liking this quilt is just another sign that I am turning into my mom as I age! She had a thing for patriotic quilts back in the 80's.  Maybe it's the antique background that I really like set off against the bright red?

I am really liking bright bright quilts lately (high volume, if you will)

I love this color combination. I will try an orange peel block someday!

I have a feeling that an amish style quilt is in my future! Black mixed with bright jewel tones? Yes, please!

And, finally, can anyone tell me the manufacturer of this bright floral or point me in the direction of a similar looking fabric? I feel like I've seen this before in oilcloth, too.
