More pictures from GRAND RAPIDS … AQS QUILT SHOW …

I have tried to post an eclectic mix of pictures from the show. I took over 300 pictures on each day. First day I concentrated on pictures of entire quilt. On the second day I concentrated on the quilting and got mostly close up pictures. There was a great mix of quilt styles. Hand quilted about 25 to 30 quilts. Modern Quilt about 20- 30 quilts. Traditional style quilts another 30-40 quilts. There was a large display of GUILD quilt challenges. The rules were decided upon by the guild and members made quilts following that particular theme. There were about 100 quilts mostly art style wall hangings. AQS also had several special exhibits : WICKED, Cherry-wood Challenge, Quilt like an Egyptian, Animals we Love, ULTIMATE Guild Challenge, Teacher’s display, AQS Authors’ Showcase, Quilts from the Museum, New Quilts from Old Favorites Challenge, SAQA WIDE HORIZON ART QUILTS, Living Color, and my favorite RED, WHITE and Quilted ( A display of antique quilts and counterpart contemporary reproductions of the antiques.)

I am thinking they had about 400 quilts at this show. It was not the biggest show but they did have a good mix. I will be going to it next year and I plan to take classes.

I am going to have to come back to post more information about the pictures when I have a chance to research the quilt. I missed some of the title cards in my picture.
