As promsed...

Well I figured out why I couldn't get photo's to load from my camera on Sunday. It wasn't my camera, it was my laptop. I had it up for many many days... so it was low on memory. Once I shut it down and restarted it, I was fine.... I couldn't get my email system to load either, so I new there was a problem :-)

So as promised, here are a few pictures from last weekends Empire Quilters: Urban Inspiration Quilt Show.

I loved this piece. It was simple, yet eloquent. I am going to redo my stairs and upstairs hallway walls soon and I think I will use this piece as inspiration for pieces to line the stairs.

This NYC / Brooklyn Bridge skyline was done by Anna Faustino, using her woven technique. All the buildings in the city landscape are woven, covered with black netting. The wires on the bridge are made with metallic thread and the quilting in the orange sky/background was truly amazing!

This paper pieced quilt was also quite stunning... don't mind the photo... the colors aren't true! I love the color choices against the black background and while the design was simple the visual impact was high. It won first place in the paper piecing category.

Well that is just a taste. The show is held every two years, so if you are in NYC Spring 2011 make sure you add it to your list of things to do... and The City Quilter shop is only 2 blocks away.

My only sorrow... I didn't win the raffle quilt!... boo hoo....
