There were a couple of modern quilts that I really liked.
|Deconstructed Lone star by Carolyn Murfitt|
|Harry's Quilt by Penny Cade|
I think that I especially loved the quilting on the modern quilts.

Here are a couple of the pictorial quilts; I loved this turtle especially as I am into under the sea quilts at the moment. I am actually making a quilt with a turtle and I think Karen's is much better. She's a young, enthusiastic quilter and one to watch in the future.

I loved If These Walls Could Speak by Linden Lancaster, she is so talented and whenever I see her quilts I wish that I had done them.

Here is a gorgeous quilt by long- arm quilter Karen Terrens called Snow White, it was so delicate and pretty and so beautifully quilted.

My photo doesn't do this quilt justice; it is by long-arm quilter Ramona Resurreccion. The white centre is a vintage table-cloth and I always think of my friend Gina who collects vintage linens when I see this done. You can see Gina's blog and her posts about vintage linens Here Her blog is called Patra's Place of Stitching and Vintage Linens

This small quilt by Julie Adamson done with silk was absolutely beautiful, it is hand appliqued and hand quilted.
