I didn’t take a lot of photos at the quilt show – this time I told myself to focus on seeing the quilts myself. I of course did take some though! I find I have a hard time holding my camera steady though so some that I thought I had a photo of I don’t as it is blurry and when I asked Mike if he had copies of them on his camera I found that it was the art quilts that had caught his eye and he didn’t have some of the more historic looking quilts and the hand quilted quilts that I enjoy.
Baltimore in Bloom by Sally Magee – Texas she spent 3,000 hours on applique and 1,000 hours on hand quilting.
Grand Illusion by Beth Nufer and Clem Buzick of Oregon. Machine piecing and quilting, hand applique and paper piecing.
A Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses quilt – the only one I saw, it is called “Classmates” by Noriko Kido of Japan – she made this very original with the way she played with color making each block look different.
From a special exhibit from France – this one is called “Scaramouche” by Dominique Husson – hand pieced and hand quilted.
I will add in more quilts over the next couple days – have a few more to share.
