World Quilt Show Orlando

So fun to gift a quilt to an old friend!

Last week hubby and I took a road trip to Florida. First stop Savannah, Georgia, then on to Cocoa to visit a friend and gift her a quilt. Two days at Cocoa Beach and then a stopover in Orlando for several hours for the World Quilt Show. This is just a sampling of some of the fine works displayed.

There was a whole display of modern quilts. I found myself studying them and storing away ideas.

These quilts truly blew me away – hand appliqued and hand quilted – all to perfection! Amazing!!

I really liked the way wearables were displayed. It was fun to walk through the display and see all sides of each entry.

I’m always fascinated with the detail that goes into some quilts as it did with this parrot.

This row by row caught my attention – in the close-up those squares are only 1/4 of an inch!

Bright colors always catch my attention as you can see here:

We went on to visit family in two other cities and then headed home. After a week of 80 degrees it’s a bit tough being in the colder temps, but I know spring is right around the corner. Please?!!
