finding inspiration in quilts

I attended a quilt show—the North Coast Needlers biennial show in Westlake—this past weekend with a very dear friend who is an avid quilter. I used to quilt, back when I was a stay-at-home mom and before technology overtook my life (that's another story for another blog). So it has been years since I sewed or even attended a quilt show and I didn't know what to expect. I was not disappointed because the quilts were truly amazing, to say the least! I loved the combination of techniques and patterns along with their bold use of colors. Some were truly works of art and would look wonderful hanging on a wall—if only I had more wall space!

Here's a peek at what I saw at the show. I hope these quilts inspire you as they did me. Enjoy!

I apologize for not writing down the names of the quilts and who created them. If you recognize any of these, please email me the information and I will post the proper credit due for each one. I promise to take a pad of paper with me next time I attend a show! Also, please note that many of these have been cropped so you can see more details.
