AQS--Des Moines Fun!

A friend and I took the day off and headed to Des Moines for the AQS quilt show.  If you want to know more about it go here. Neither of us had been there before so we didn't know what to expect. The first view we saw through the window upstairs was oodles and oodles of booths!
We didn't realize it at the time but right there in the front middle of the picture was our favorite quilt store--Willow Creek Quilt & Gifts!
Here  Juanita and Deb are in the Willow Creek booth.

There were many quilts on display.  Many had been judged for something in particular, and some were in contests.  I took some photos, but the quilts were all gorgeous in their own way.
I would love to have this wintery quilt hanging on my wall. This photo(I won't keep saying this,because it's true for all the photos) doesn't do it justice.
Here is a close up of some of the embroidery at the top.
This quilt was a cute one in a booth that was selling the pattern.  It is a game quilt for kids.  The sides are I Spy fabrics.  I intended to go back and purchase the pattern, but didn't.:(
This quilt caught my eye with the stunning  red flowers on the black background.
That's all for today.  Stay tuned for more great quilts in upcoming posts!

Shoot I missed it by a week! And so close to my son! I'll have to keep it in mind, and hopefully they have one next year I can plan around!

I had a great time, Kim. Thanks for taking me along with you. I am itching to get started on some of the things I bought. It was a lot of fun.
