    You did a great job Tom. You even got a couple of mine! tee hee You certainly have learned to do close up magic with that camera!

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Lynn, Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed the show. Seeing your name on several of the quilts made photographing the show even more special.

      I really enjoyed seeing your work up close. The orange flower basket quilt was a visual feast. So much fun to look at and filled with fabulous detail. Congratulations on creating such a wondrous piece.

    The pictures of the quilts are wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Love the close up of the quilting and the tags on the quilts.

      Hi Jo Ann, I’m glad you enjoyed the show. The Coastal Prairie Guild has a lot of talented members, which makes photographing the show easy.

      I really enjoy the close up photos too.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Have a great day!

    Fabulous quilts and fabulous photography. I did see a few quilts that would have enjoyed some beads and sequins I think. ;D

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi BJ, You are too funny. I am glad you enjoyed the show in spite of the lack of embellishment. It is always a great experience to see so much creativity under one roof.

  9. Jackie Says:

    Awesome, once again beautiful pictures! You are so lucky to be able to see the quilts up close. Thanks for sharing.

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Jackie, Thanks for your kind words. It was a great experience to see the quilts close up. I find it a challenge to appreciate the details when you are 6 or more feet away from the work. I enjoy shows that give me the opportunity to savor the details.

      Thanks for taking the time to see the show and for commenting. It’s always great to hear from you. I hope you have a magnificent day!

    Tom, I have enjoyed viewing your photos of shows that I couldn’t make it to! Thanks to my friend Charlotte who shared your site with me. I can see that you are as interested in the fantastic quilting as I am. Thanks so much for taking all that time to upload these photos for everyone.

  14. Carla Says:

    Great Pictures. I’m never disappointed. The past month has been so busy. I can’t even remember why I didn’t get to go to the show.
    Glad you had pictures to share.
