Celebration of Quilts X

In yesterday's blog Quilt Pixie asked "How do you nurture your muse?" One thing that I like to do to nurture my muse is to get out to some quilt shows to see what other folks have created with fabric. It's a great opportunity to see first hand some great finished projects. One day I'd love to attend one of the big shows like the Houston International Quilt Festival that was just on. This past weekend the York Heritage Quilters Guild had their show and everyone who attended was asked to pick their top 5 favorites. They have yet to announce the winners. There was lots to choose from and below were my picks.

that rose window is "to die for" -- what a stunning reminder of rose windows in a church...
