So, when I was at MQX, I had a few minutes before one of my classes so I hit the show floor and checked out the quilts. I am an eclectic person by nature, I love all sorts of random things. Especially quilts…..I must have got that from Grandpa Ford, he never met a quilt that he didn’t like! So I look forward to seeing the traditional quilts, the over-the-top quilts, and everything in between. Then I turned the corner and saw this quilt:
This quilt was inspired by Yoshiko Jinzenji and was stunning to see up close. I briefly thought, “who says there are no modern quilts at quilt shows,” and then headed to my class.
Afterwards, a gentleman that had taken the class came up and introduced himself to me. I recognized his name, he was Andy half of the dynamic duo that made that quilt! Turns out, it was a part of a special exhibit! Fast forward an hour and I was back at the show snapping pictures of the exhibit.
As I was lurking around, snapping pictures, Jim came over and totally busted me ogling his quilts!!!
Up close of the quilting:
This quilt wasn’t in the exhibit, but was in the main show:
I love the play on colors! You should check out their blog to see more of their work…you won’t be disappointed!
I had such a great time visiting with both of them and feel as though I have made 2 new friends! Just goes to show, you never know who you are going to meet!!!!
Today, I am headed to the MOKAN machine quilters guild to give a workshop, here’s hoping I meet some new friends there as well!
