Quilt Festival Visit

Hello Dear Friends!

Spring has come to Ohio and we are all so glad!  The daffodils are blooming and a beautiful green is starting to replace the brown that was everywhere.

I decided that to celebrate this wonderful time of year, I would take a day to become inspired! Lucky for me, the International Quilt Festival was held in Cincinnati this past weekend!

 If you ever have the chance to attend, you really should try to....it was wonderful!  There were 375 booths filled with great projects, ideas and fabric, fabric, fabric!  18 Special Quilt Exhibits displayed amazing quilts and fabric art from Baltimore Quilts to Quilts with Words As Design.
   My favorite part of the show, however, was one of the special exhibits, entitled "Celebrate Spring!" It was  a collection of the most beautiful quilts that did just that...celebrate spring.

Aren't they beautiful? 

My daughter saw the pictures on my camera and asked where I had seen the incredible flower paintings. What talented people created these works of art in fabric!  I apologize that I didn't get the names of the artists, but did want to share them with you.

Hope that they inspire you as much as they did me.  I can't wait to get out in my flower garden!

Have a good week!
