My guild had its annual Quilt Show last weekend. It is a lot of work and I am amazed at the wonderful women who donate their time and talents for days to pull this off.
Further, their quilting expertise is amazing in an array of divisions and styles. It is open to everyone both to enter and see.
Here is one that the colors just popped. The maker said she spent 2 hours with her son selecting the fabrics for it which are batiks. The black, of course, just makes it striking.
This is one I watched as they put it together at retreat. There were two ladies who each made their own version. I may have to do this for a grandson. The bright happy selection of fabrics and the cute pattern really is perfect for any little one.
This is one of the 3 big winners. It of course, won for the fabulous machine quilting and the piecework. Love it.
This is an up close block of the grand winner. The maker teaches machine quilting classes and I have loved her previous work including a reindeer quilt she designed and sent to a national competition.
This is the whole quilt. Such a beauty of applique work and machine quilting!
The hand quilted winner is not in this group. It was completed hand quilted in silver metallic thread that was all intricate small snowflakes in between the appliqued one. It's background was a beautiful grayish blue.
