On September 7, 2012 I went to the fabulous Quilt Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. On the Nancy Zieman show I think I heard her say that 72,000 people attended. Quilting is HUGE here in Madison. I saw tons of people in buses unloading and going into the venue. It cost $6 to park and $7 to get a ticket to go inside. If you don’t bring a snack, it will cost at least $7 to purchase food at the concession stand. It’s worth every penny! Viewing all the machine and hand-made quilts in person were migraine inducing! The details…oy!
Love the scalloped edges.
The turtle and rabbit is one of my favorites. Unfortunately I am very bad about giving credit to the quilt makers, but here you can see from the tag it’s by Barbara McKie of Lyme, Connecticut. Here is the detail:
Bryce Canyon is by Susan Jackan of Madison, Wisconsin.
Here is a detail photo:
It’s funny…speaking of migraines…I have one right now! It…really…sucks!

Starry starry night
The Buddha quilt was one of my favorites.
You can buy this kit. Loved it!
My dog was just barking in a really annoying way and I screamed,”Get into your quilt!” Instead of, “Get into your crate!”
This quilt was a big hit! Here is the detail:
Very special! Third place by A MAN: Mark L. Sherman, Coral Springs, Florida. Called Bounty. Here is the detail:
So, so good!
This is pretty amazing. It looks very three-dimensional, doesn’t it? Here is a detail:
Wow is all I can say…
I hope you have enjoyed these as much as I have. I will do another post of other quilts hopefully tomorrow when my migraine is gone. I just get so excited to share with you!
Thank you for looking at my Critic Housewife Blog! xoxo
