Last photos of quilt show-machine embroidery quilts

This quilt, to me, was the Best of Show! Absolutely stunning.
A closeup of the middle section. Machine embroidered and machine quilted.
Another machine embroidered quilt but fabric has been used in the blocks with embroidery stitches holding the fabric in place.
A close-up of one of the blocks.

Well, here are the last of my photos. There are lots more, but these were the ones that stood out for me.

This is the first time that I encountered so many quilts that had machine embroidery on them. Is this the new phase of quilts to come?

I won't be popping out to buy an embroidery machine, but these quilts are to be admired for the time and workmanship involved and they are gorgeous!
Enjoy and have a great day!

There were several quilts at the show I attended last weekend that were embroidery machined also. I'm with you, in that I'm not going to rush out and buy one.

Yes I think it is much more interesting to have the backing different to the front, I always try to do that. And I agree with you I am not going to rush out and buy an embroidery machine.
