See explanation of this year’s show in Part 1.
I just couldn’t pare it down to one post, so you’ll get 2 posts full of fabulous!
Here we go, in no particular order, with occasional comment:
Gorgeous silks and incredible details throughout.
This is another that would have been up for my fictional “Judge’s Choice”. The teeny triangles grab me and the simple quilting makes for a superbly edited piece.
Eileen is in my guild and I remember this charming quilt from our local show. She received a Judge’s Choice! The center is from a pattern, but that charming border with those teeny tiny Prairie Points is her design.
As a swimmer, I particularly appreciate this one.
Up for my fictional “Judge’s Choice” award. It glowed, love the color, the mix of “tradition” with innovative design and the quilting is just perfect for the piece.
Photo with some manipulation. Gets my “Best Use of Color” award.
One of the best Dear Jane’s I’ve seen; unexpected colors for a Dear Jane but you gotta love rust and blue.
Probably would have received my fictional “Judge’s Choice” award. So much speaks to me: the Midwestern in me, the colors, the edited design, the texture and the tiny little details like the “trees” on the horizon.
Absolutely exquisite applique and hand quilting. Beautiful color choices also and so much texture.
Color, whimsy, silk, the right amount of quilting.
The scene is so serene. I feel the glow of the sun.
Lovely hand quilting, piecing and applique with so many delicious details.
His work is so unique and he captures expressions and gestures with such skill.
Fabulous show, no? I hope you enjoyed it. Both parts will be linked at:
