Quilter's Take Manhattan!

Quilter’s Take Manhattan!

I was actually thinking they should have changed the name of the show from Quilter’s Take Manhattan to O’Susannah’s Takes Manhattan!  See all those people?  Well more than half of them were all from O’Susannah’s!  Sue took 2 buses loaded with Quilters to Manhattan and it was a blast! 



Now for the real eye candy!  The quilts!




Every type of quilt was there.  There were real modern quilts, landscape quilts and antique quilts.  Mark Dunn (Owner of Moda Fabrics) brought some quilts from his personal collection to share with us. 












And a very special quilt from his personal collection, the first quilt his son made for him!


A Jelly Roll Quilt!



Did you know that every year Moda features a reproduction quilt?  It’s called Quilts for a Cause.  Mr. Dunn brought quite a few of them, both the Antique Quilt and Moda’s modern day version of the quilt.   

Have  you seen the 2014 quilt yet?


Give us a call or send us an email, we've got the kits!  Kits normally cost $160.00, for a limited time our price is $140.00 (While supplies last)!  This quilt is honoring Libby Lehman.  
  





Here you can see The Antique quilt behind Mark’s son and he is holding Moda’s version of the quilt. 



Now you can see both a Antique and the reproduction next to each other.  The matching of the colors is amazing!



The following quilt (the Woman’s face) from a distance is pretty, very pretty but when you got up close to it an realized what it was, well it was simply stunning and truly pulled at your heart strings.







It was made up of thousands of pictures of women that had had Cancer.
           
And it was beautiful!



We had a wonderful time and EVERYONE was exhausted when it was time to go home!

If you plan to be in or around NYC September 2015, you should go!  Quilter’s Take Manhattan is put on by the Quilt Alliance (Alliance for American Quilts).  Here is a link Quilt Alliance page where you can get more information and sign up to the eNews. 

Happy Quilting Everyone!
