NJ Quilt Show

A few weeks back I did manage to drop in at the NJ Quilt Show in Somerset for a short time. One of the highlights of the show was I tested a few long arm quilting machines for the first time. Wow, very different from quilting on your home sewing machine. Makes FMQ a lot easier especially the ones with the start and stop button on the handle. I did not fancy the computerized ones, preferred the manual ones. A lot more skill needed with those.

There was a fabulous display of quilts at the show. There were a ton of Kaffe Fasset and KF insprired quilts which were just a riot of color. I always love seeing his quilts.  

And then around the corner I saw this. A quilt by our very own Lee Burnham. Of course I am totally skipping Liza...her quilts are synonymous with a KF show. Excuse the poor photographs, I used my phone.

The details on some of the quilts was amazing. I specially liked these two.

My sewing machine is back from thrilled to have it back.

  1. Great pictures! Thanks for sharing. That's too cool about Lee's quilt. Hopefully our guild can have our own quilt exhibition one day!


Thanks for visiting!
