Another Quilt Show Highlight

Another highlight of the Quilt Odyssey quilt show was seeing Sharon Schamber's, "Scarlet Serenade", winning quilt of $100,000 Quilting Challenge Magazine contest. What an exquisite quilt! It's another quilt that photos just do not do justice, but you can see close-ups of the quilt that show some pretty amazing detail here. On top of getting to see the quilt up close and in person, I also got to meet and chat with Sharon Schamber herself! The meeting was purely accidental, I was shopping through the vendor's booths and spotted the quilt halo (designed by Sharon Schamber) that I have been wanting. As I picked it up, a woman behind me said that I was sure to enjoy quilting with it. I turned around and started to talk to her and then realized who I was talking to! What a thrill to spend a few minutes chatting about quilting with one of my quilting idols!

Thanks for the great photos of the show - for those of us who didn't make it!! I'm curious about the "Quilt Halo" so be sure and let us all know what you think

I will be sure to post about the quilt halo once I can find the time to sit down and try it! Right now we're getting ready to go to NC to see our son and daughter-in-law for a few days, so not much sewing going on here this week!
