More quilt show photos

Here are more pictures from the Expo show in Madison, Wisconsin!

This is made to look like a very typical flower in Wisconsin called Hosta. I have never seen them in California.  Isn't this amazing!

I really liked the setting for this log cabin quilt. 

There was a display of antique quilts and the reproductions made by Julie Hendricks of JJ Stitches in Sun Prairie. It's a great quilt shop with fabulous fabrics and patterns!  Julie displayed her antique quilts alongside her own reproductions.
This one is the reproduction. The original is on a rack:

Antique quilts in the rack:
Reproduction is hung behind. 

Antique Sisters Choice

Another reproduction. 

 This was another display of amazing machine quilting on a small home machine. 

I thought this was incredible!!

More amazing quilting!

I was enticed to do some appliqué by a cute kit by Kim Diehl:
This is Pat's. Mine is in pieces still. 

Lastly, I saw this on the way to the airport. Only in Wisconsin!!!

Today is the start of the Jewish New Year so I'm sending wishes for a L'Shanah Tovah to you! Tomorrow we go to the ocean for Tashlich where we throw bread into the water, representing the  shedding of our sins. I'll bring a whole loaf of bread!!
