It's Monday, Again

I just returned from a great long weekend at the Quilter's Unlimited quilt show in Chantilly, VA at the at the Dulles Expo Center.  It was my second year to vend there and I saw lots of familiar faces.
This was the 44th annual quilt show put on by 11 chapters of Northern Virginia.

It was an amazing show and should be put on your road trip list.  This year the members exhibited 500 quilts and there was a great special exhibit of 179 quilts titled "Fly Me To The Moon".  There were also 70 vendors  as well as the raffle quilt of the Virginia Quilt Museum.

I tried to get to the Expo Center early each day so I could walk around to see the vendors and the quilts before the show opens.  There were lots of fun quilts made by the members.
 Great bird varieties.
 This was a great use of  the row by row license plates, by Cheryl Miller.
I love this simple 3D effect.

 I wish I had a collections of these vintage crochet goodies, like Carolyn Lynch (no relation).  
What fun they must have been to make, inherit or collect.

This is a great use of B&W fabric.

The special exhibit, "Fly Me To The Moon" was just amazing.179 quilts inspired by the moon, including astronauts, space vehicles and even songs! They were created by quilters from all over the world, and were all the same size, but so unique.

It's so inspiring to see these varieties of quilts.  I can't wait to see what will be on exhibit next year.  Put it on your calendar: June 1-3, 2018.
