MQX East 2011

On Saturday KK and I went to the MQX East Show in Providence RI.  As always the quilts on display were absolutely AMAZING.  I noticed several trends this year including, a lot of images turned into quilts, cat quilts (some of these were images turned into quilts), more orange in the quilts, crystals were still popular (which I love), embroidery was big on a lot of quilts, and some people have machine quilting skills that I can only dream of having a fraction of their talent.

I'll post some photos from the show in a couple of different posts since they will be photo heavy.  This post will focus on some of my favorite quilts from the show.
This quilt won best of show.  The quilting was amazing.  I wouldn't call it my favorite quilt of the show but it was nonetheless stunning to look at.
I think this quilt was my favorite.  Can you believe that this is actually a whole cloth quilt?
Here's a closeup.
I thought this quilt was really cute.  It's so fun. 
I love both the quilting and the colors of this quilt.  The color is a bit off in the photo.  The purple was actually more of a pure purple than pink-ish.
Generally this is something that I normally wouldn't like, but the purple feathers really popped and caught my eye. 
I love the colors used here.  They really pop.
This quilt was absolutely stunning.  While the colors are totally not me, the attention to detail, the quilting, just everything was absolutely stunning. 
See those little squares?  They're 1" square and pieced.  Crazy!
See... unbelievable!

More photos to come tomorrow...


  1. Those quilts are soooo amazing, way out of my kindergarden league!

  2. That wholecloth quilt was our favorite, too...we all voted on it for Viewer's Choice! I couldn't believe it didn't get Best in Show.
