There were so many beautiful quilts that I couldn't possibly photograph all of them -- but I did gather a few of the most awesome applique and/or free motion quilted entries at the show. I've included a few of my favorite entries below and all of the images can be seen by clicking here.
First up: "Roses in the Vineyard" by Lynn Ink - Lynn hand stitched appx 700 grapes on this 16" mini and she also hand quilted it. What wonderful talent. See more images here.

In some cases the overhead lighting at the Community Center didn't get along well with my IPAD and I missed getting images of some fabulous quilts -- kudos to all the entrants in the show!!
I did take about 45 pictures of quilts at the show -- you can see all of them in this Post by Redbird Quilt Co. on Facebook. You don't need a Facebook account to view it, and please feel free to share with your quilting friends -- you never know when inspiration will hit!
If you would like to see my entries in the Quilt Show, and some lovely quilts from the 2013 show -- visit this post.
Finally, I've been trying to follow a suggestion by Mark Lipinski and the Slow Stitching Movement to keep Inspiration flowing, so, after I left the QUILT SHOW on Sunday, I broke out of my habitual route home and took a new path. Check out the beautiful scenery I found on this route just North of Watkins Glen, NY.
If you're interested, read more of Mark's suggestions to break out of your inspiration slump here.
Let me know if you enjoy posts like this.. I always enjoy looking at quilts -- do you?
Stay tuned for my entry in the "Around the World Blog Hop" on Monday, and some other fun announcements next week.
Have a blessed day all!
