A Few Of The Quilts From the Show


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.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Beautiful Baltimore but why would you count the hours in the making? For me it is all about the joy of the process (and hope of a pleasing result!). The French exhibit must have been amazing – they do the most beautiful hand work. Thanks for sharing these 🙂

      Maybe with knowing she wanted to enter it in a show she was curious as to how long it would take? I keep track out of curiosity how long it takes to hand quilt my quilts on the big frame but I am pretty good at judging now how long it takes and will probably stop doing that – the reason I did it in the first place was so many asked how long does it take and would you make me one – to that I could answer well it takes 150 hours alone to hand quilt a queen and most likely double that to make the top so that is 300+ hours at how many $$$ that shuts them up!

    What an amazing group of quilts! I can’t imagine spending 4000 hours on one quilt.

      I know that is a lot of hours – I think I spent the most time on my Dear Jane quilts but even those maybe totaled 800 or less
