Last Friday, some friends and I crossed the cheddar curtain (into Wisconsin) and attended the Madison Quilt Expo.
I’ve never been to a show of this size and it did not disappoint on the “overwhelming” scale!
Oddly enough, we spent almost all of our time there looking at the what seemed like hundreds of vendor booths and just a couple of minutes looking at actual quilts in the show and most of those were in the entrance hallway.
On top of that, I took very few pictures. I hardly had the camera out of my pocket. What was up with that???
These are just a few of the things we saw that interested me.
I really liked the colors and shading in this one although there is something about the tree that reminds me of an Scooby Doo cartoon where the tree jumps up and runs after them.
This is a little busy for my taste but liked the colors and especially the wonky trees. Wonky trees may be in my future.
I fell in love with this line of fabric. It’s wintery not Christmasy. Not crazy about the silhouette animals but all the other fabrics are right up my sewing machine! I bought what I could at the show and now have to find the rest. It’s Bernatex Montana Modern from last Christmas so technically it’s not available unless someone still has last years stock. This quilt shop said they had some. I just haven’t called them yet.
See how good it’s going to look in our sunroom?
Between this and the other projects I came home with, I’ll stay busy most of the winter for sure.
