Quilts on the Quad

We had a gorgeous day for the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild's first quilt show.  The organizers did a fantastic job, and the show was full of stunning quilts.  Here are just a few.


I have to show some closeups so you can appreciate the quilting, in particular. This is a quilt by Carla of Lolly Quiltz, quilted by Angela Walters.  Amazing!
 Mary Anne's quilting on her Kona challenge quilt adds so much.
 And wait until Shea does a full reveal on this one on her blog soon.  I adore the quilting!
Sheryl's quilting is always staggering.  This quilt was draped over a water feature. 
I've said it before - best guild ever.

Oh my goodness! You have a talented group. I've met a couple of your members. Those of us in the STLMQG are hoping we can collaborate on something soon!
