I know it has been almost two weeks since Quilt Market and I promised you all photos last week, but I have been so busy putting new projects on FaveQuilts.com that I’ve barely had time to blog! I’m finally getting a moment to sit down and organize more photos. This week, I want to show you photos from the galleries of award-winning quilts. Next to the hustle and bustle of the booths on the main floor, the galleries were quiet, peaceful, and breathtaking.
I’m one of those sentimental dorks who positively weeps at the least bit of emotion, so I wasn’t at all surprised to find my eyes glistening as I looked at many of these quilts. I’m awed not only by the vision and beauty in these quilts, but the time and devotion it takes to create one of these masterpieces. Quilters are a brand of crafter known for absurd dedication to their art, and it shows. I have passed by many highly regarded paintings and sculptures in my time, but a beautiful quilt is something that makes me stop and stare.
