Cedar Rapids Quilt Show

Cedar Rapids, IA has a wonderful quilt show every other year - and this is the year.  I've been to it twice before, and it's always a nice show.  Now, before you read on...remember my lack of photography skills.  And, I leave for Florida tomorrow, and do not have time to mess around and edit these already-poor-quality pictures - so enjoy the quilts, and ignore the photo quality!  When you first enter the show there is  a display of quilts by two different featured quilters. 



 
The only picture that I got of Alice's is the Dear Jane in the background.  The following are quilts by Featured Quilter, Elaine Sondag - be prepared - they are wonderful!

Dear Jane quilts always just amaze me - this one is exceptional - wonderful piecing and hand quilting - amazing!
The rest of the pictures are miscellaneous quilts throughout the show - all very nice!















 The following pineapple quilt won best of show. 


So much inspiration!

Have a great day!
