International Quilt Festival Chicago 2013, part 4

This is the last group of photos I have to share. If you’d like to see any of the photos (in any of the posts) in greater detail, click on it to be taken to that photo’s Flickr page. Right click on the photo on the Flickr page and you have the option of several other views.

This group features the most unique quilt collection/display method I’ve ever seen – it’s the Quilted Yurt. I included a photo of the story as well.

Finally, I’ll leave you with a bit of a laugh. These last quilts are part of a group called ChiCOWgo – all of the quilters used The Purple Cow pattern from the book Out of the Box with Easy Blocks by Mary Lou Weidman and Melanie Bautista McFarland.

So that’s all of the photos I took – well, there was one more, but I forgot to get a picture of the name and maker so I can’t post it. It was an incredible blue and white traditional quilt that was on the wall by the entrance. It looked like a variation of the Burgoyne Surrounded pattern, only more complex. If anyone knows the one I’m talking about and has the name, I’ll love to hear from you!
