The show had a juried section, a non-juried section and another section with various groupings. Plus they had rows and rows of vendors selling fabrics, quilting supplies, and machines.
I only had my cell phone with me so many of the photos I took didn't turn out. I will share some of the ones that did. Under each photo, I will share what was written on the information card for the quilt.
This was one of my favorites. The details were simply amazing! Look closely.

This was a beautiful quilt with embellishments on it. The photo doesn't do it justice at all. I was surprised to see that it was made by a lady from Washington state. Since this was one of the first quilts I looked at, I expected the show to be only Minnesota quilters.

As soon as I saw this quilt, I was immediately reminded of home. This type of art is done by the many Native American peoples that live around Puget Sound. I was not surprised to see the quilt was made by a woman from Seattle.

I liked this quilt because it has a barn with a quilt block on it!
|"Inside a Farmer's Heart" by Terri Krysan - Lakeville, Minnesota|
I was drawn to this quilt because of the colors and simplicity of design.
|"Tom's Carpenter Star" by Diana R. Wilson - Andover, Minnesota|
This was an immediate "Wow" burst of color. After reading the card, I realized I had been to the quilt store mention and yes, the wall of batiks is impressive.
|"Citrus Inferno" by Michael Johnson - Duluth, Minnesota|
I liked how the quilter did this t-shirt quilt.
|"Center Stage" by Colleen Jensen-Carlon - Grand Forks, North Dakota|
Quilted by Kathy Fellbaum. How can ten tees become a tribute to high school theater productions?
First it was the colors that got my attention, then it was the detailed quilting. This quilt should have been in the judged division. I loved it!

I must be on a green kick or something because this beauty also caught my attention.

I had so much fun at this show. I spent about six hours there admiring the talents of many quilters and then melting my credit card in the various vendor booths. It was worth the drive and I look forward to going to my next show.
