I didn't get around to posting yesterday. The sore throat I mentioned in my last post has developed to a upper respiratory infection. I just didn't feel like doing much yesterday, but I'm feel better this morning.

Here's the rest of the pics I took at the quilt show in Independence.
I really liked this little kite quilt. The piecing was simple....a square in a square. The lady who made it used embellishments to turn it into kites.
This quilt had some wonderful piecing and some lovely applique.

These stitchery baskets looked like some that my great grandmother use to embroider.
This quilt used pieced blocks with blocks made from cheater cloth. You really had to look to know it was cheater cloth.
I never thought of using light pink....but I love how it looks in this quilt and will definitely put it in my idea file for a future project.

This quilt was made from patterns that appeared a few years ago in the Kansas City Star newspaper as a block of the month. They were then compiled into a book. I think they were by Barb Adams and Alma Allen.

I just like the butterflies in this quilt!

And in this one!

The cutwork patterns on this quilt were designed by the lady I take applique classes from.

And I also liked this little stitchery quilt.

There were many more beautiful quilts. These were just a few that caught my eye.

I'm glad you're starting to feel better - remember not to over do or you'll feel poorly again. :-)

Good to hear you're feeling better. However did you limit yourself to so few pics? My camera would have been full! LOL
