I have several pictures from quilt shows that I went to this year. I thought that I'd start a thread of quilts that we didn't create, but thought worth sharing. I'll periodically add to the thread to bump it up if it gets too far down on the list. Some of these are not my thing (for example, applique) but found some that floored me.
This was called 'Butterflies on the Pond' The creator embroidered several types of butterflies on a the pond fabric print. It was really effective
Beautiful quilts stu...thank you for sharing.
I have never been to a quilt show yet, but I am hoping once I get my health issues under control I will be able to attend one!!!
I especially love the Grandmother's tribute and the monster quilt...so much detail in them both.
I went through the whole show then went home for lunch and back again to take photos.
Stu I thought of you with this one because of the fabrics. This was a BOM called "Civil War Tribute" using repo fabrics. It's quite large 95x106. The displays were set up like cubicles so it was hard to get full photos of some of the quilts, plus there was a large crowd and I had to wait sometimes to get a clear shot.
One I chose for you Thunder. It's called "Lake Memories" is 90x90 and has over 5000 pieces. Most of the pieces were 1"x1". I'm sorry for the bad photo as I said it was difficult to get the shots and some were so rushed. This really doesn't do it justice.
I think I really should have voted for this one.Called "Times and Seasons Calendar Quilt" It's 82x83, made with applique, silk ribbon embroidery and beaded (none of which shows in the photo) , took 3 years to make.
Wow! Thanks for posting. Amazing quilts and something for everyone. So hard to choose a favorite, would really like to work on a round robin quilt. So much talent. I really like those dragonflies in the Mariner's Compass.
great pics Karen! Thanks for posting. Mariner's Compass always seems to be one that I get drawn to more than others also. Especially when done in vivid colors..
Stu, our area here is big in Civil War history, especially this year, but one of the local LQS was running a BOM of Civil War blocks to put together a quilt. She had one completed in the shop, so very pretty. They were charging $25 a month for each block kit, which made multiple blocks from the pattern, plus a class.
