The Star Books division of the Kansas City Star put on a quilt show at quilt market.
Quilts were displayed in the halls and staircases.
Here's a short tour.
Rosie Mayhew machine quilted it. I designed it.
Jennifer Dick The Circuit Rider's Quilt
The Kansas City area has many talented quiltmakers and designers. The Star show featured quilts from their books.
We tend to do a lot of applique based on traditional design like this one from Kathy Delaney.
The contrast between the quilts and the views was impressive.
Linda Brannock, American Beauty
Here is a shot of the ink for the presses. It's just like the inside of your color printer with cans for cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Except the cans on the right towards the back are three stories high.
Barb Adams, Country Inn
I always love to see Barb Adams's take on tradition.
Nosegay for Mother
I recognized the fabric as reproduction prints from a Moda collection I did with the Star several years ago, but Barb stripped some of the color out of the prints so they are more subdued
Feather Your Nest
Barb and Alma have many Star books for Blackbird Designs
