Quilts from the Iowa State Fair

Our family ventured down to the Iowa State Fair a week or so ago.  I had always heard that there were quilts there but I had new seen them.  Boy….was I missing something awesome.

I snapped a few photos so that you could enjoy a taste of the Iowa State Fair quilts too.

Check this one out.  It is made out of TINY squares.  There was a photo near the quilt that the quilt was modeled after.  All I can say is WOW….I would NEVER try that…but what a masterpiece.

That’s today’s eye candy.  I’ll show you a few more of the quilts tomorrow.

    There are some very talented quilters in Iowa. Thanks for taking the time to place the photos on your blog for all to see.

    I truly enjoy seeing the ideas and colors used by SEW many quilters around the US and the world.
