Back from AQS quilt show



I love this one because of the scriptures quilted into it.  I know you really cannot see it, but it is wonderful!



Love this use of strings!



I thought of all of you bloggers that have been making hexagons when I took this photo!

The AQS quilt show in Des Moines was wonderful!  Lots of beautiful quilts and 197 vendors to intice me with all kinds of new projects!  Here are a few pictures of some of the quilts I drooled over.  And I got to meet a fellow blogger, Carolyn from Lee Prairie Designs.  She is adorable, and so sweet....just like her blog. 
Well...I am off to decide which project I want to start on!  Hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful fall day!

I love quilt shows...so many ideas to bring home and projects that "need" to be added to my to do list. I especially liked the bright wonky houses and the string quilt.
