As promised, I’ll share a few more quilts from the big MQX show. Pick out your faves and shout it on out! It’s interesting to see who likes what. Funny how tastes are so varied.
Did I mention last post, that there seemed to be more quilts with glimmer and shimmer? I had to find out which methods were used, besides the obvious metallic thread. It finally occurred to me “What about those nice neat cards provided for each quilt?” Might the cards shine some light on this question [excuse the pun]?” Goodness me yes. So here are a few more lovelies. I hope the glimmer is visible on film.
After c0llecting some information, I literally ran to the Superior Threads booth, with a salvaged snip of paper dredged from the bottom of my purse. It had the names of some of the products used on these gorg. quilts. “I gotta have these, a whole lot of these, in many many colors of these”. I blurted out when I saw the sales rep. He seemed, well, startled. I was pretty urgent I suppose. It must have sounded as if I was asking him to call an ambulance. Yet, didn’t everyone else who looked upon all this magnificence do just the same? Certainly they must have, what was wrong with this man? He should have become accustomed to it by now! I don’t know, is it possible for men to love glitter as much as women? Maybe not.
