I am still overwhelmed by all the beautiful quilts I saw in Des Moines yesterday at the AQS QuiltWeek Show. We arrived about 8:30 (the show opened at 9) so we had a few minutes to buy our ticket, and to look over the show book. Ok, first we found my name in it!
Once they opened the doors, we headed to the area where the Modern Challenge quilts were located. Much of the show was in this second room at the show. There was no balcony overlooking that room so I couldn't get a bird's eye view of it.
We saw many different exhibits, including the best of the best, the Master Pieces.And they truly were! I loved this one!
This is the arena that you walk into when you get there. There were quilts on the far left and front of the arena. Much of the show was in a second room to the right of the main arena at the show. That's where the Modern Challenge quilts were, as well as many other exhibits including the DM area quilt guild show.
Here is mine! I will post more pix from the Modern Challenge and other exhibits tomorrow.
