This week's theme is: Quilt Shows
I always find myself experiencing an array of emotions whenever I visit a quilt show. As I toured the quilts on dispaly at HMQS this past weekend in Utah, some quilts really "inspired" me and I found myself actually squinting up close asking myself: "How did they do that?"

Others cause me to stand back, just lost in awe as I admire their beauty and craftsmanship.
|Darn! The picture was a little blurry....never the less, WOW!|
Others just make me smile, wishing I had thought of that!(This was my Viewer's Choice)
And though Jackson would never sit in a basket long enough to take a picture,
let alone go for a ride...some quilts I just find myself loving!
I also find myself reaffirmed that I'm doing okay at this hobby of ours. I myself, don't set out to make "show quilts", yet I am inspired by the range of skill this hobby allows and love the idea that we can only continue to grow and develop in our own confidence and style as quilters. Do you ever feel like that? How about you?Does a quilt show ignite an array of emotions in you too?
