It's now the last day of the Salon Quebec show, and I've managed to get out and see about 1/3 of the quilts. As mentioned, my job here is to help customers; if there is time, I'll check out the vendors. But that's not my priority - although I'll be stopping by the Wonderfil booth this morning and doing some serious damage. Wait until you see what I'm getting!! I might need another suitcase!
Here are a couple of other quilts that I got pictures of.
This is pretty cool and very scrappy --- right up my alley. And I love the colors, which are the same as my Tula Pink Butterfly quilt.
|Scrappy pink and green!|
There were lots of BIG quilts; as I mentioned the other day, 21 were quilted by hand. FORTY-TWO were quilted on domestic machines! That's incredible, and 57 were quilted on a long arm. There are a lot of large quilts!
Some of the quilts are basic, and others, like this one, are out of this world.

Helen Anne would be asking for my detail shot, and I took some but didn't load them.
Although I'm not a fan of the big white spaces, this quilt was stunning.

But look at the label to see how long it took to make each border. Now that's dedication!

We have lots of help to help us pack up those sewing machines, so if each of us does three machines? We'll be out of there in no time. But then table cloths to fold, samples to pack -- it's so much fun!!! But it shouldn't take long, and then I'm off to the airport to catch my flight. I will have luggage on the way home as I'm bringing my suitcase of samples home. I need it for Wednesday, so let's hope it makes it safely!
OH -- I got to see Nancy for a bit while I was at lunch, but no pictures, and I've seen others as well and made new friends. It's been a great show, but I'll be happy when 6 PM comes around!!!
On that note, I'm out of here!
Have a super day!!!
