Quilt Expo

I had such a fun day travelling with my friends to Quilt Expo.  We yakked and laughed all day long. My mind was still buzzing after I went to bed.  There is always so much to see and shopping to be done.

I hope you enjoy seeing some photos of quilts that were on exhibit.  Jean Lohmar from Galesburg, Illinois had a whole hallway of quilt and was on hand to share info about them. She told me that she only machine appliqués and machine quilts everything on her domestic machine- a Bernina.  She said she has worn out more than one machine.  Her colors are really stunning, too.  Here is her work.

 This is my friend, Carolyn.  She has fabulous red hair.  I hope she is not touching that quilt!
 This is Jean, the quilt maker.  She designed this quilt and spent a lot of time describing to me the techniques she used and where the fabric came from and showed me how she cut specific patterns from the fabric.  She was really great to talk to.

She had many more quilts on display, but these were some of my favorites.  Hope you enjoyed them.  I'll have more to share next time.

  1. Jean does amazing work! Everything is so beautiful, but when I enlarge them I think the 5th quilt becomes my favorite. It is unbelievable what some people can do on a domestic machine. Thanks for the show!
