MN Quilt Show Photos, 1

Here you go -- some of the very gorgeous and amazing quilts posted at the 2011 Minnesota Quilt Show in Saint Paul, Minnesota -- this year I was particularly amazed at the beautiful, fine piecing, and the tiny and intricate quilting. There was also a lot of 3-D and textural stuff. Very interesting and beautiful!

I'll post more in the next day or two. Sorry I don't have names to go with the quilts. One of these years I'll get organized and record what I'm looking at.

This one is called something like "Mosquito's Eye View of the City"

This small quilt includes some 3-D and some tiny quilting

This small quilt is a reproduction of a bed-size quilt. It's really small! Can you see the size of the safety pin? That gives you an idea of how small this quilt is.

This is a 3-D portion; I could have put my fingers inside the circular part of the flower, but, of course, touching it is not allowed.
