This was definitely the best show I have seen from the Roseville Quilters Guild. The applique and quilting were exquisite and there was lots of variety. They installed additional lighting and every shot I took was right into a light, so I had to mess with the color to get definition on some of the quilts. They are moving to the Roseville Sports Center venue next year which is very well lighted and spacious.
Spot; Leisha Belau. This was a BOM and I love that bubble quilting!
Cherry Sweet; Connie Richerson, quilted by Debbie Lopez. What sweetness! Some hand applique and hand quilting.
Farmer’s Wife; Jenny Gedeon, quilted by Debbie Lopez. This was beautifully constructed and quilted. Gotta love a Farmer’s wife quilt.
Detail, Farmer’s wife. Custom quilting really highlighted the beautiful piecing and every block was custom quilted.
What Has Happened to Christmas; Maryanne Paveglio. This is an original design, quilted on a standard domestic machine! Maryanne used the colors to speak to the purity of God’s love and how the reason for Christmas is getting lost.
I Am Lion; Elisabeth Baratta. It took paper piecing to make this striking quilt. Sometimes matchstick quilting is the perfect answer.
Modern Medallion; Jenny Gedeon, quilted by Debbie Lopez. Love her color choices; the quilting set it off well.
Downtown; Joan Fuller. Paper pieced and 5 years in the making. I love how the windows give a welcome glow. Everything about this quilt was so well done. There were many clever details to be found.
Detail, Downtown. It took awhile to take in the many charming details of this quilt.
Detail, A New Age.
Old Fashioned; Leisha Belau. This was many years in the making and those fans are hand applied. Leisha started hand quilting it but knew that it would take a long time, so she unpicked the hand quilting and long armed it – done!
Details, Old Fashioned. The color is much prettier than my photo! Beautiful design in the plain blocks.
The next two quilts were inspired by a Lynne Pillus workshop. Lynn’s students create fabulous art:
Old Yeller; Linda Skinner. Great use of the “color does not matter” principal.
Majestic One, Patricia Visher. Love the colors Patricia used for her elephant.
Pajaro Dunes, Patricia Visher. Patricia made this quilt from a photo of a beloved retreat, a gift for her friend.
Illusion, Lin Squires. Exquisite quilting and colors!
Circles; Michelle Pearson. Michelle took a class from Brenda Gael Smith which inspired this quilt. So fun, so colorful!
State Flowers; Shoko Harrell, quilted by Debbie Lopez. Shoko said she was unfamiliar with Pearl Pireira’s freezer paper applique method and had to learn by doing. The applique is beautiful and the quilting is just enough to enhance it.
Running In Circles; Laurel Moore, my photo too blurry to see the name of the quilter, sorry. Wow, what a stunner! I rounded the corner and this just hit me. Apparently it is next year’s Opportunity Quilt – I’ll be bidding on this one.
Shadow Baskets; Vilma Stohl, quilted by “???”. This was a beautifully done mini. Velma took a class from Sally Collins which inspired this sweet quilt. Those half-square triangles are super tiny!
Precious in Pink; Kaye Allen, quilted by Debbie Lopez. This was such a sweet quilt! The hand embroidered children are adorable. Once again, the grid background looks delightful next to the embroidery.
Brag here – Laurel is one of my students and she has worked diligently on her free motion quilting over the years. As I visited the Roseville Quilt Guild shows over the years, I have seen her work blossom. She is now a skilled and confident free motion quilter. Does it get any better than that? Go girl!
I didn’t get the name of this on by Laurel. It was hanging with its back to direct sun in a narrow hall and this is the best shot I could get. It is a lovely quilt with beautiful quilting!
Cross-hatching and feathering, both so well done. Mama’s proud!
I wish I had more photos. Many photos were just too bad to share, mostly my rudimentary camera skills, partly shooting into the light. I’m excited at how great the show was and that they will be in a spacious, well-lit space next year.
I’ll be sharing on Nina-Marie’s Off the Wall Friday.
