|We love the juxtaposition of red Maple leaves with the Redwork blocks|
The first is a Redwork quilt, "In Memory of Mother" by Lou St. Onge. The quilt, machine-quilted by Lisa Teichman of Garden Gate Quilting, was hand-embroidered and machine-pieced and quilted.
"Lucky Lemoynes" by Melissa Hays is inspired by Deb Tucker's "Lucky Lemoynes." The colors used are eye-popping!
"My Mini Sewing Splendid Sampler" was hand appliqued and embroidered by Ginny LoDuca and machine-pieced, appliqued and quilted as well. This hangs in the quilter's sewing room when it is not displayed in a show!
|Close-up of blocks in "Feathered Star" quilt|
"Feathered Star" by Barbara B. Seney was the result of Hoopsisters' Block of the Month program. The quilt is machine-pieced and embroidered and is truly a work of art!
One quilt that caught our eye is "Granny Squares" by Mary Lou Sanborn, quilted by Dan Russell. The quilt was offered as a pattern in American Patchwork & Quilting, October 2010.
|The more one looks, the more there is to "see" in this quilt, "Seasons of Wolves"|
|I just love "Scavenger Hunt Challenge" with its quilts hanging|
on a fence, cows in the pasture, and loons on a lake!
Two different quilts by Dorry Swain are memorable. "Seasons of Wolves" and "Scavenger Hunt Challenge" are hand-pieced and machine-quilted.
The show offered 200 quilts on display, vendors, raffle baskets, demonstrations, a boutique, a scrap table, and refreshments. I bought a beautiful new pocketbook that is quite pleasing and was able to chat with my friend, Cary Flanagan, author of After the Storm, who was vending. All in all, it was a very pleasant way to spend a Saturday morning!
