The Roseville Quilters Guild show is about as close to me as it gets-less than a 5 minute drive! I had not been to their show in a few years and it has dramatically changed for the better. They now meet in a larger location, which draws a lot more members. Also, their new location is a bright and spacious church facility that has a great layout and lighting and room for some fabulous vendors. I have lectured at the guild and taught several times also, so it was a treat to see all the beautiful quilts and quilting of people I recognized.
I must have been losing battery life because many of my shots were impossibly fuzzy. I was only able to spend 90 minutes at the show as my new little Basset Boy was at home! So here we go:
Oh I loved this one-the colors, the design, the quilting! Sadly not only is my photo fuzzy but the card photo was too fuzzy to read.
Bev saw this at an Alaskan quilt shop and made it as a reminder of her trips up north.
Another one that the card photo was too fuzzy to read. Sorry Jill, but I love this quilt! And it is serene and lovely.
I loved everything about this quilt-the “round Log Cabin” design, her use of well-placed and varied greens, and the quilting-oh my! The quilting really makes this work. And by the way, every circle was a start and stop-every single one!
Leslie was inspired by Judy Niemeyer’s Bali Wedding Star. She did foundation piece it and quilted it on her long arm. Although it was made for her daughter and son-in-law, apparently it’s too hard to part with…
Lin used the “Metro Rings” pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful. What a perfect choice to show off her exquisite quilting-oh that luscious texture!
Oh a scrappy quilt! Jane hand appliqued the center block using a pattern by Lori Smith-beautiful! I love it when the quilting enhances the quilt and does not overshadow.
Gig used her Mary Englebreit fabrics left over from a French Braid to construct her quilt. It hung around in her closet for a few years before she decided to give it Leisha to quilt. The quilting is gorgeous!
When she saw this pattern in a book, Jenny knew she had to make it-I see why! It took her a year to finish-such a charming quilt.
Connie used piecing, applique and paper piecing that she learned from a class at Quilter’s Corner. Oh those happy colors!
This is from a Fig Tree pattern, Summertime in the Hill Country. Love how she quilted this-all that negative space is beautifully quilted!
Patty’s quilt was from a mini challenge using an Edyta Sitar pattern-love those whimsical colors and the fluttery effect they give!
Candy used a Joe Wood pattern and Daiwabo fabrics from her collection, as well as fabric she purchased while visiting Japan. Her lucky daughter will get this quilt when she moves back to Japan. I love the different patterns and whimsical color choices she made.
I forgot to take a photo of the card because I was talking with Lynda. She made this quilt for her parent’s bed-it’s a huge quilt! Almost as soon as it was done and she gave it to them, they got another bed and it did not fit. It is stunning and she really used the blooming nine-patch technique to great effect.
Kathy attended a Dream Retreat with Eleanor Burns where she got to use a Destiny Embroidery machine. The fabric was provided and she chose her embroidery designs and thread. Brave girl-she chose metallic thread!
So simple, so beautiful! Leisha did not want those windmills to touch-that provided ample space to show off her quilting. And the addition of the aqua inset-perfect.
Joan took a class with Janet Ford on a recent cruise. This quilt is the result of the time she was able to spend with Janet figuring out the details. Janet loves to curved piece-can you tell? Really lovely quilting highlights the dragon peeking out of the tree.
Ack, I forgot to take a photo of the card. Laurel has taken several of my classes and she remarked that now she has the confidence to quilt her own quilts-yippeeee Laurel!! She did a great job and even quilted in some Big Foot motifs. When I see a student go off and make their own beautiful work, my heart almost bursts!
Betty created this from a design she saw in Block magazine. I love its almost Modern feel and the vibrant colors she chose.
Joan took the pattern from her Alaskan cruise that called for primary colors, and instead used 11 shades of gray. The ruler work really helps make this quilt shine!
My photo of the card was blurry so I don’t have Bev’s comments, but you gotta love this Halloween quilt. The embroideries are charming and spooky!
If any of you can fill in the blanks for me of quilts whose card was fuzzy, please write me and I will add that to the post. Don’t you just love a great quilt show? Roseville Quilters Guild, that was a fabulous show!
