World Quilt Show Florida 2012 - teaser post!

Chris Kenna - Millefiori (detail)

Ooof! I'm just back from an inspiring and overwhelming day (yes, a five hour day - not moments like last year) viewing the quilts at the World Quilt Show held in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Gloria Loughman - Fern Pool (detail)
I had a solo day on my own - without watching the clock for my next Mom duty! Deee-light-ful!
I feel re-energized!

Harue Konishi  - SYO#42 (detail)
 Gradually I'm working on my Flickr slideshow of photos - adding in the details and links to the artists (when I can find one).

Sally Townsend Hughes - The Nine Patchers, a Family Reunion (detail)
I'm still mulling over the oodles of quilts seen - and will share thoughts in future posts.

Annette Bamberger -  Four Voice Choir with Soloists (detail)
 Can't forget to mention what a delight it was to chat with quilty/fiber folk and share the awe at the workmanship and artistry of the huge selection on display.

This show is tiny compared to Houston's International Quilt Festival - I can't imagine how overwhelming that one is to view. (But it's on the bucket list for next year - so hopefully I'll find out!)

Thanks for stopping by!
