31.1 Quilt Show 2013 smaller sized quilts took overJuly 22, 2013
The tiny quilts really took over the show with twice as many as any other quilts. Size of small quilts went up to 57″ so my tiny ones were right up there next to some larger lap sized quilts.
These are some of the other members’ quilts that I liked.
Beautiful whole cloth quilt and you can see what looks to me like ruler work in the center blocks. And they sashed it, and added feathers.
This quilt is part of a quilt kit that highlights twilling, the knotted embroidery stitch that is so popular here. Love this quilter’s work, that takes a lot of time to twill that much. And the gradation fabric!
Funky jewely applique. How cute.
Now I know who’s quilt this is. I love the addition of some photographed blocks. On instinct I knew it was important when posting originally (this is a little bit edited a few days later), but the impact of this quilt fort he recipient and for the quilter is amazing. I wish I had time to really look at this quilt in person at the show. Luckily the quilter who made this has a blog, and I would love to direct you to read her story about this quilt. This is the latest about this quilt, a little bit sad (3rd paragraph in).
What a memory!
Actually, this is an older picture of our featured quilter. This little wallhanging is framed and embroidered celebrating a very special anniversary, done by her daughter who is part owner of the local quilt shop.
Because I’ve seen this a lot, I keep thinking this quilt is older than it really is. This quilt is whole-cloth-style but is actually twilling and the quilting is amazing on it too. There is a subtle “low volume-ness” to this quilt.
I think this was a round robin quilt with the applique society. We saw it come together at a retreat I believe. So Cute!
Well I do have other small quilts, but I am breaking them up into another blog post. Hope you’ve enjoyed the virtual quilt show so far. Stay tuned.
