Quilt Show 2008

This past weekend a quilt show was held in my home town. I was super excited. I've been wanting to learn quilting, but all my quilt projects never seem to get off the ground. Any way,My mom and I went and had an awesome time! There were so many cool quilts. I am so inspired now to really start learning to quilt. I got to try my hand at a long arm quilting machine. It was totally cool and now I really want one. But it was a little out of my budget...okay it was way out of my budget, but a girl can dream can't she?

I think I'm going to start with small lap quilt or wall hanging instead of trying to jump into a full size quilt right away. I'll let you know how it works out. Here are some of my favorite quilts from the show. All of the photos I took can be seen
here on flickr. If you have any quilting tips for me leave me a comment and let me know! Top: This one has a really cool illusion effect. Up close when I was taking the picture I didn't even notice it. Bottom: This one is made from neck ties!
