More Quilt Show Pictures
This was one of my favorites for a couple of reasons. The colors make me feel happy, and I can really appreciate how difficult it must have been with all of the sharp points. The pattern is called New York Beauty. It won 1st place for 1st entry in AQS Quilt Contest.
This quilt won one of the top four awards for Gammill Longarm Machine Quilting. The fabric is silk and has floral applique and a quilting overlay for a three dimensional look.
This is another one that won one of the top four awards. It won for Bernina machine Workmanship. It is a whole cloth and has so much stitching in it. I just can't imagine how you could pull this off without making so many mistakes, you would want to give up. This quilt is amazing!
This quilt won second place in the Pictorial category. The artist studied ikebana in Japan for 11 years before creating this.
I am not sure if I got a good picture of The Best Of Show which is the top award because there were so many people standing around, I could hardly see the quilt. I am pretty sure I have a picture of the artist that made it though. I will have so many pictures to show it may take me a year to put them up. I realize it could get pretty boring for most of you who visit my blog, that don't share my interest in quilt shows, so I will try to throw in some other things here and there.
