The AQS Show in Des Moines was smaller than I had expected but the quilts were more spectacular – more sequins, beads, crystals, fabric painting, photography transfers, ruching, couching, decorative thread painting, embroidery, paper piecing, piping, trapunto – none of which interests me at all. I’m a plain country quilter who likes to piece at my machine and you already know I dislike that dense elaborate machine quilting so I did not come home very inspired. I have pictures to show you and I’ll post some today and some tomorrow. Please remember these are my opinions only and I’m not criticizing, only commenting. These are super talented quilters that I would never be able to emulate and would never try.
