The Vermont Quilt Festival

Saturday June 28th I attended the Vermont Quilt Festival in Essex Vermont. If you love quilts, fabric, sewings or textile arts this is the place for you. The expo center was huge! It was my first time attending and once I saw all the cars in the parking lot I knew I was in for a really great experience. It was so nice to be surrounded by people who appreciate and love this as much as I do. I had so much fun. I met many exceptionally talented people and loved hearing their stories and knowledge. Just so brilliant. I even mustarded up the courage to show them pictures of the quilts I’ve made and got great positive feedback. It meant a lot to me.

For me I stared out looking at all the vendor booth. Checking out all the shops that sold fabrics, patterns and basically everything else you could imagine. There was also JANSOME, BERNA, BABY LOCK (sewing machines and more) demonstration booths. I can’t tell you how tempting that was. Could be a dangerous situation for a craft junkie 🙂 it was so super cool.

Once I checked out all the vendors on the outside I then went and admired all the beautiful quilts. Just breathtaking. It’s not something one can explain it’s just something you need to see for yourself.

This quilt was the winning quilt! This isn’t the best picture of it because but the detail and the actual fabric that was used was amazing. There were many people around taking pictures!

This quilt was so cool it didn’t even look like it was made from fabric so amazing! And I got to meet the artist!

This quilt called Serenity is a 3D quilt. Can you believe it?! Truly remarkable. I can’t even image all the time this took. And if you saw it up close all the small details it has. So awesome!!

I loved this quilt. The colors and design, just beautiful. I also loved the story behind this quilt. A mother made this quilt for her daughter because she was going to collage . Her daughter always wanted a lone star quilt.

So I had been looking and looking for a quilt made with Liberty of London fabrics and boy did I find it! I was so excited when I stumbled upon this quilt! Just lovely. And the name couldn’t have fit it any better!

Not to mention there was also a section of antique quilts. This area did not permit photographs. But my goodness where they stunning. Those antique fabrics are just magnificent. And I have to tell you an absolute weakness of mine. I ended up purchasing an antique quilt and fabric myself…. And I was behaving myself so well too.. All in all a great day and it was beautiful too!
