AQS Quilt Show Grand Rapids

So excited we made it to the AQS Quilt Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan!

Gwen's exhibit advertised on the Big Screen!

Christine and I

Myself with my quilt! The quilt looks smaller than it really is because I am standing a few feet in front of it. They had chains in front so that you could not get too close to the quilts.


then we got caught taking photos when we were not supposed to be! oops! but hey, it was my quilt anyway!
We had a really good time. We started right when it opened and spent the whole morning just looking at the quilts on display. Overwhelming!  There were quite a few exhibits and the workmanship was superb, felt a like my quilt did not deserve to be in such amazing company! I particularly liked the the Stitch like an Egyption: Tentmakers Exhibit.

amazing applique!
And there was so much more! If you want to see the winners of the AQS Show follow this link. Then we did lunch and then checked out all the vendors...we really needed another day to do the show justice. I was impressed, I would definitely go again!

Your quilt definitely deserved to be there! Can't wait to see what you create next week!

You don't give yourself enough credit girl.....that quilt is fabulous, most definitely deserved a place in the show and you deserve the applause!!!!!!! YAY!

Did you tell them it was your quilt when you were caught with the camera? experience is that there is no problem taking photos of your own work at these shows. (You probably could have even ducked under the rope) :-)

Congratulations again! Is that show in the same place all the time? We should fill up a van next year :-)
