Above, Chris Brown stands in the Attic Window Quilt Shop booth at Quilts On The Grand, the quilt show put on at the Delta Plex by the West Michigan Quilter's Guild.  The show had 275 quilts on display.  There were demonstrations over the three day event as well as special exhibits, vendor mall, raffle quilts, and a small quilt auction.  This was a super show and I want to show you some of the quilts.
The first quilt I want to show you is Twirling Roses and was made and quilted by Julie Barnum.  This quilt is based on "One Block Wonders" by Maxine Rosenthal.  Julie said that she started this quilt in a class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop because she wanted to learn the technique.  She said it was a lot of fun arranging the hexagons into a design.  Julie's other quilt, Autumn Star, which I never did find because it is such a big place, won an award for Individual Pieced-Machine Quilted.  Congratulations, Julie!

I had to take a picture of this.  I love Cats.  This piece is actually called Attitudes and is made and quilted by June Becker.
