Quilt Show Part II

More photos to share of some of my favorite quilts from the show last weekend.  Enjoy!

 This Santa quilt was done by a student of Gail V.  Gail is the teacher and she entered the same quilt with a white background.  Both are fabulous.  This one has a tan background and was made by Patti.
 A lady that I see at the Y asked me to submit this quilt for her as she was on vacation that day.  It was all rolled up on a long core and wrapped in plastic, so I couldn't see what the quilt looked like.  Imagine my surprise when I saw it hanging!  This is Carol's first entry in a show and she won a blue ribbon!!  This is Barbara Brackman's Civil War Sampler.
 Butterflies over Baltimore by Peggy V.  Her first hand applique quilt.

 Lorraine's entry in the modern quilt category.  Lorraine makes perfect circles.  

 Another quilt by Lorraine.  She also makes perfect leaves and birds.  Plus she is so nice and always willing to teach others.
 A closeup of Lorraine's quilting.  She's pretty amazing at that, too.
 Glacial Star by Denise M.
 Jacobean Journey by Mari H.  This is machine embroidered and quilted on a Pfaff machine.  It is made in squares and then sashed on the back to cover the seams.  It is truly a work of art.  How she got all the pieces to line up is a miracle.

 Old Glory by Faith
 Colorful stole made by Birgit when she retired from the ministry
 Silk vest made by Sandy who also teaches silk scarf making
 Adorable Owl also made by Birgit
 Lots of Prairie Points on the Back
 Snow Days by Judy C.  It is in light yellow, white and grey with a touch of pale turquoise.
 Closeup of hand embroidery in greys and pale turquoise.  Really lovely.
This is A Spooky Evening by Sally N.  It is based on Happy Village techniques.  Can you see all the cute little rooftops?  So fun.


  1. So much cool stuff here! Though I am not a modern quilter I was completely drawn in by Lorraine's quilt. It is so fun!
    Denise's and Mari's quilts really caught my eye, too.
    That owl is adorable!
    Thanks for Part II. : )

  2. My favorite is the Baltimore style quilt. Love the fruit compote block.
