Kankakee Quiltmakers Quilt Show 2010

The Kankakee Quiltmakers Guild has a show every other year.  I spent a couple hours there today admiring all the beautiful quilts and soaking up all the inspiration. 

This design was so simple and yet so unique.

Another simple but beautiful quilt.

I thought of One Flower Wednesday when I looked at this one.  I WILL get back to those.  I enjoy sewing them - it's the cutting I don't care for..... the one reason I now want a GO! cutter.

All these dresses were embellished - with lace, ric rac, buttons....

I thought at first that all the circles on this quilt were appliqued and I was stunned.  They're not... it's fabric.  But it still made for a striking quilt.

Beautiful applique and beautiful quilting...

I love the shape of this tree.  I didn't notice the sparkles until I got home and looked at the picture.

Several of the quilts were red work.... just lovely.

This one made me smile every time I looked at it.
These are just a few of the quilts.  I took pictures of nearly every one.  If you want to see the rest they can be found on my Flickr page.  Grab a cup of coffee or tea and treat yourself to a slide show of inspiration.

This really is inspiring! I'm tempted to go borrow a sewing machine and try my hand. Your posts often have that effect on me.
