quilty goodness!

Over the weekend, I went down to Hampton, VA with a few friends for the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival! I met them through the DC Modern Quilt Guild, which has been so great to be a part of.

Hampton is about three hours south of DC, so we left really early, but we stopped at Krispy Kreme for a quick snack, and then breakfast at Cracker Barrel, where I had birds in a nest, one of my personal favorites! Once we got to the convention center, we ran inside and found some of the most amazing quilts I've ever seen.

I apologize for the poor quality of the photos- I left my camera at home, so these are taken with my iphone!
Seriously though, aren't these just so amazing!? I can only hope that I'll be half this talented someday! It was really inspiring though, and gave me lots of ideas of things I'd like to try at some point, so that is a good thing.
Of course, there were lots of vendors, so we all bought lots of lovely fabrics. Do you want to see photos of all of the fabric I bought? I'm currently thinking up project ideas for my new goodies :)
PS. Have you entered my giveaway yet? Go do it!

What amazing quilts. I especially liked the one with the quilts on the line and the hot air balloons. Thanks for sharing the show with me. And, of course, I would love to see your fabric purchases.

I think the Peeps quilt is so cute! Although I'm not actually sure how functional it would be
