Tyler Quilt Show

The following are some pictures from the Tyler Quilt Show.
This was the wearable arts section and I LOVED this top---made of vintage linens.

The following is Psalm 23; beautiful quilt.

I am not a big fan of the Turning 20 pattern, but check out this one: It is all about Texas with embroidery in the blocks. I really liked it.

Here is a close up of some of the blocks:

Loved this quilt. I've been fighting myself NOT to buy the pattern. Can you tell from these pictures, that I'm "really into" embroidery these days????
There were several Christmas quilts in the show.

Nice pink/brown in repro fabrics.

Handembroidered quilt "Angel of the Month: I was really nice.
If you are a fan of Leanne Beasley, you will like this quilt. The maker added more blocks to make the quilt larger.
Another Christmas quilt made from log cabin blocks with embroidery in the centers. I overhead a man in the crowd say "it needs more green". I think so too.

This story quilt about fishing caught my eye since my hubby is gone on a fishing trip.
Roosters, of course!

This fall quilt was really pretty with the use of the colors.

This qpplique quilt was made entirely of wool.
I liked this feather star with the delectable mountain blocks surrounding it.
This quilt is "Tulip Time" incorporating machine embroidery and piecing. I have started this same quilt, but nope it's not finished.
That's All Folks!

I'm doing that Winter Wonderland one only in red! This week I'm going to put it together - I've finished all the blocks. I do love embroidery and especially redwork. And I'm also a bit fond of vintage linens :) so the blouse would be a big hit with me too! blessings, marlene

OOOOOO...I'm loving the Christmas one made all in wool. I wonder if there is a pattern for that or if someone just made it up?

Oh my -what beautiful eye candy. I fell immediately in love with the Christmas wool quilt. I'm very slowly collecting wool to do a quilt. I think they're WONDERFUL.

I see you ARE into embroidery these days...LOL

Thanks for sharing all the pictures from the show - so much inspiration there. You and your whaky friends just crack me up with your antics - if I lived in Texas could I be a party crasher and join in? Sounds like my kind of fun.

Lots of beauties to look at but I agree, that Turning Twenty all about Texax - very creative!
