NQA 2008

I had the opportunity to attend this year's National Quilting Association show and expo (thanks to mom for babysitting!!) and I got to see some great stuff. I took lots of pictures and here are the quilts I found most inspiring:

AH, the beach! Love the umbrellas, some pretty cool piecing on this one.

I am really digging quilts of black and white with one bright color thrown in.

This is a reproduction of the artist's favorite photo using only black thread on white fabric. Amazing!

More great color...

Love! Love! Love the use of pattern on this one!

My favorite -- both because of the color and the abstract interpretation of banyan trees.


And of course there were lots and lots of vendors -- here's my haul:


Clockwise from upper left: Timeless Treasures Taxi; a Moda Jelly Roll of Sandy Gervais's Merry & Bright; Large Ric Rac; Northcott's Kitty Kaleidoscope; Andover's Duck, Duck Goose; two 1/2 yards from Urban Chiks by Moda (clearance!!); three 1/2 yards from Fresh Cut by Heather Bailey for Free Spirit (clearance)!!

I better get sewing!
