Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City Quilt Show - Part 1 of 2

Over the last weekend, Jason and I visited the Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City Quilt Show at Crown Center. I took a ton of photos because there were a ton of amazing quilts shown here. I'm going to split the photos over the next few days because I'm sure you would get irritated with so many photos on one post. So, this is the first of a few. Enjoy!

They had this really cool thing going with a bunch of the stores in the center. Two dozen of the stores and theaters were offering a free quilt pattern. Each had a different pattern. They were all fairly simple. I only photographed one of them. They were each displayed something like this.
