iqf chicago {recap}

Last weekend I attended my very first quilt show - IQF Chicago. As I mentioned before, our Naperville Modern Quilt Guild had a special exhibit - Log Cabin Challenge.



  
I was amazed to see how gorgeously diverse and imaginative all our quilts were.

{me, with my Improv Logs}

There were so many beautiful quilts on display, these two were some of my favorites. Sorry, I completely spaced out and have no idea who made these quilts.
 

 
I'm thinking I need to make a house quilt in the near future :)
 
 
I also loved seeing many vintage quilts. All these were for sale and totally out of my price range, but just looking at them provided so much inspiration. I'm so ready to start a new quilt as soon as possible.

One silly picture of my son and husband "enjoying the quilts" before I go.


I'm sure most of you would like to hang upside down and soak in the beauty of all the quilts like that, right?   :-)

Talk to you soon. Svetlana

  2. Sweet! That's awesome your son and husband joined you! Ah to be young again and able to hang upside down:)

    Your log cabin looks very pretty with the others, and very modern! I can't wait to see what kind of house quilt you make. Something wonky maybe? I have a love for house quilts myself and have collected several magazine patterns for them, but haven't gotten around to making one yet. My favorite has stars, too!

  3. The quilts from the Log Cabin Challenge are wonderful--especially yours! I enjoyed the two other quilts as well. Yes, a house quilt is definitely on my list as well.

  11. Your two favourites would be mine too. The house quilt is amazing and I adore quilts on a line. It's nice to see a picture of you too. Previously I'd just been trying to put a face to your name. I'd imagined all wrong :) I'd thought blonde being that you have European background. I can't believe kids and husband went to a quilt show with you! Mine would just ruin the day for me with whinging and complaining!

  13. the second house quilt is from Bern, the capital of Switzerland! The Tower in the middle of the quilt is the Zytglogge one of the many great sites of Bern. As far as I know it is a group-quilt from the Berner Quilters.
