Dallas Quilt Show

on Mar 13, 2013 in Blog, quilt | 0 comments

This weekend was the Annual Dallas Quilt Celebration Show. It was the first time I have ever been to that show. I have to say, it was much much much bigger than I had anticipated. It was also the first more traditional show I have attended in a while. (gasp!)? I got there right when the doors opened at 10a on Saturday. I found some GREAT quilts inside the doors at the Dallas Market Center. I’ll add my favorite pics here. I appologize, I do not know who made each one. If you know who did, please leave a comment below.


This little BLT sandwich was a mini quilt up for auction. It was my favorite, and evidently the fav of many others. Word on the street is that it went for $575. I love this quilt sandwich!

And here are my top favorites from the show side.


Blue Plate Special – salt and pepper are beads on the quilt


Liberty of London Quilt with AMAZING assorted free motion quilting fills – LOVE it.


Raw edge Applique Circles- Love it, by Ms. Morrissey.


New Modern Windmills in the quilt piecing and old fashioned windmills in the quilting. Great piece!


Allison Chambers’ TV quilt in the Texas Modern Quilt Showcase- LOVE IT.

After a fun day at the show and meeting up with a few SA Modern Quilt Guild “Hot Tamales” it was off to dinner with the family, who had finished up at Six Flags Amusement Park.

Serious Pizza in Deep Ellum. This guy in the picture below is throwing and stretching a thin crust for a 30″ pizza. Now… I have a question for you…. You know how kitchen people pull their hair back or wear hair nets in lots of places and of course, have to wash their hands extensively?? Well, what about this guy’s forearms?? Is that pizza crust covered in forearm hair?? Yeh, this totally came to me AFTER I ate (thank goodness) but now, I’m really curious. Is there a sign in the bathroom “Employees must wash hands, unless you are the pizza tossing guy, then you need to wash up to your elbows.”? Hum. and EEEWWWWWE!!! By the way- that pizza was insanely delicious.


And if you have ever been to Deep Ellum, you know an eclectic sort gathers down there. We were there at 6p-ish, so probably nothing too weird will happen, right?? Wrong. Some kind of run had just ended, so while we were eating our pizza, 4 ninja turtles, 1 zombie guy and 2 zombie princesses (in gowns, of course) and a Trojan warrior all came through to grab a slice. Never a dull moment, even at 6p.

Full bellies and a full day-
