MQX is a machine quilting expo that has 2 shows...one on the west coast and one on the east coast. For the past 2 years it has been held on the east coast in Providence, Rhode Island. Woo hoo for me!! Tina, from Seaside Stitches, and I have been to the show each year. We've taken classes, shopped, view the beautiful quilts and have been suckered in by too many demos!! If you are in any kind of business, do demos...they get me every time.
Here are some of the pictures I took of the wonderful quilts at the show. I can only dream of quilting like this...and even in my dreams I'm not this good!
This is a quilt of a quilt show. Amazing!! The quilt has different ladies looking at the quilts hanging up. The detail is incredible.
Here's Tina snapping a picture of it too.
This is one of the mini quilts in the quilt with the ladies looking on. They have bags, purses, sandals, flip flops, tags on the quilts and even a blue ribbon winner...too cute.
See the mini quilt?
Here's my wrinkly old hand for size! Just holding it up there...I didn't touch.
A mini crazy quilt.
There is even a realistic name tag with a little straight pin stitched in...such detail. You can see this name tag better in the picture with Tina in it.
This quilter even has all the fabric that she purchased at the show in 3 bags.
Back to normal size quilts...great 1930's quilt.
Great pattern and colors.
I'm speechless with the quilting.
This is another mini using antique linens.
This quilt was one of my favorites.
Great pineapple quilt.
The pictures don't do the colors justice in this one.
This was a super mini. Even the ribbon she won is bigger.
I really need to start using more brights.
but I absolutely love these colors too.
and this is such a cute way to do an I Spy quilt.
Here we are on our way out after a wonderful day. Tina has a great smile and I am saying "hold the button down" to the man taking the picture. lol !!
We also met up with Diane again this year. We all met last year volunteering to hang up all the quilts for the show. Thanks Tina and Diane. I think we have a new tradition started.
