Oh, to have unlimited time for sewing! The second wish is the unlimited money for supplies: does that include an assistant to organize my stuff?
Anyway, here is the new hand work project I think I am going to start. And the lady in the booth showed me a tailor's knot, something I had not known. She also showed me how she pieced ( in very tiny stitches and leaving a little wiggle room. These shapes are traced around a template, and cut in strips with a rotary blade and a 1/4 seam allowance.
The cherry on top tip is the next photo: here is how she pressed it afterward to have it lay flat.
But I promised more photos of the Quilts. The quilts in a multitude of categories were from all over. 80% of the winners were from out of the state of Wisconsin. These are what I would call pictorial quilts.
This one was so neat, beads, wool roving for the splash, and so many beautiful colors. I believe the creator is from California.
This is a close up of the next quilt : tiny snippets of colors under a netting. Really beautiful!
I'll bet we see the following one in upcoming magazines and shows.
And here ends today's mini show with a Bucky Badger.
I found another quilter who also posted pictures and close ups from the show:
