I love this and my little guys. Designing them took FOREVER but TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! All of them have something I am super-proud of. Elliot’s luxurious hair. Hardison’s orange soda. Sophie’s shoes. :DDD

Also YOU SHOULD TOTALLY WATCH THIS SHOW. Thanks @crinoline-gremlin for going on and on about it until I caved! <3

“Adrift in Memories over Paris” by Sandi Snow of Lutz, Florida.

This is my personal favorite from the Florida Competition (aside from mine, of course). I love all of Sandi’s work, and this one has such ease and charm to it.

The background fabric is actually a print of a French map, and I love how she achieved the tucks in the balloon’s ribbon. Her border is absolutely perfect.

A quick peek from the VIP preview of this year’s World of Beauty Quilt Show in Houston.

My “Moonswept” is to the far right. At the far left is “Jacuzzi Jazz” by Caryl Breyer Fallert-Gentry. Right around the corner is an entry by Ricky Tims (who was there tonight). I’m feeling pretty proud to be in such company!

I have a ton of pictures to organize (unlike other shows, the artists information does not hang next to their quilt, so I had to take a lot of extra pictures to get their information so I can give them their proper credit) before I can start sharing them all.

But that may take a few days to even get started. Tomorrow is my class with Robbi Joy Eklow (who also has a quilt in the show), and I’m calling it a night!

Well, I took tons of pictures at World Quilt Show, and I’ll be sifting through them for the next week or so, but I had to send this one before I even left the show.

“Perseus Saving Andromeda” by Marilyn Belford of Chenango Forks, NY. I love her artwork! The detail on the dragon scales are insane, and the water spray really brings it to life. This was (unsurprisingly) the Viewer’s Choice for the 2014 World Quilt Competition.
