Unfortunately the family didn't have any information on this quilt. The colors are as bright as if it was made yesterday.
Same pattern as above in red
These last two might've been mystery quilts. It wasn't until I downloaded the pictures that I saw they were the same pattern. It's fun to see how different quilts can be.
Double Wedding Ring - King (note the straight edge finish)
It doesn't show too well in the photo, but this quilt radiated purple.
Red Hot Chili Peppers Miniature.
This was jaw droppingly beautiful, look at her accuracy and no ribbon??
My Potluck - A challenge quilt.
Guild members exchanged 2 and 1/2" strips of batik in a variety of colors.
My Lucky Quilt
A raffle quilt won by one of the women that worked on the hand quilting.
I stood sighing and dreaming over this one. The quilter's applique and hand quilting stitches are heirloom quality. Her choice of fabrics for the miniature roses is breath taking. The pencil bias work was flawless. It hung next to the ribbon winner in its class and I almost threw a tantrum when I saw it.
I don't think judging is as subjective as they'd like us to believe. Yes there's a lot of appliqued rabbits and leaves in the border, but thread used didn't match and the stitches were visible on all pieces. Besides I don't like the color scheme much, brown, lime and pink?

What's Your Point?
These three quilts were hung throughout the show. I grouped them because I wanted to show how different they are. What's Your Point doesn't use half blocks to finish the rows and has a nice off set look as a result. A guild class.

The points of the stars are three dimensional.

As usual after a quilt show I went home tired but happy. Until next year ~
