AQS Show Des Moines: A Teeny-Tiny Sampling

So the AQS Quilt show in Des Moines was a month ago already.  But I thought I would share a little bit of the quilts I saw there. Better late than never!  This one is called Diamond Dust and was made by Doris Brunette and quilted by Trina Kirkvold both of Des Moines.  It won the Wall Quilts- Modern category.

A peek at Margaret Solomon Gunn's 'Big Bertha'.  Winner for Bed Quilts-Machine Quilted 

This one was adorable and soo creative! Made by Terri Jones and named after her favorite Beatles song.

Lots of dimensional flowers and leaves around the octopus and it took me a while to even notice the flower headdress.

Millefiori by Sherry Rogers-Harrison. A wholecloth that she painted


This is a different quilt than the one above. Such precision quilting! I might have to try that ying-yang border design out sometime.

All Together by Hiroko and her husband Masanobu Miyama of Japan.


I really liked this sampler and how the quilter quilted each block in the background. 'Blue and White Sampler' by Kimberly Einmo and Judi Madsen.  Oh. Judi Madsen quilted it. That explains why I like it so much! 

And that's all I've got for you!
