QUILT MARKET: Inspiration

Not only did I enjoy rows and rows of vendor booths with stacks of fabric and piles of patterns, but I was totally inspired by the array of gorgeous quilts on display. The International Quilt Market had a remarkable showing of various types of quilts.  I took photos of my favorites; however, my photos do not do justice to any of these pieces of art.  Enjoy!
