I attended the –Sierra Gold Quilters Guild Show in early Oct and I am just now getting around to posting. I had a very hard time narrowing down my photos; there was so much food work!
Their wearables section was very strong – I counted 18 items! And there seems to be a lot of excellent applique going on around there too. I do think it was their best show and I do get there most years. I have short comments on each. You will enjoy the show:
Fabulous use of brights and if it’s Dresden, it must be Anelie!
I love the texture of the hand quilting.
Just beautiful and lots of detail added beyond just fabric to create depth.
Just so happy!
Fantastic representation of the flower and just the right quilting to enhance it even more.
This might have been my “Judge’s Choice”. I just love this quilt. And ya gotta give her kudos for The Best Name!
The maker was in my Sheer Paneled Jean Jacket class and I have never seen anyone do this before. Lovely composition and the cat has such an attitude!
One of the charming things about the Sierra Gold show is that it is held on the fairgrounds; there are something like 20 windows with vignettes in each. No photo of them turned out well because of the glare. There were many very interesting displays. One had, I think, 5 generations of quilters, along with their story.
Absolutely charming and colorful.
Inspiring Dear Jane. Anyone who completes a Dear Jane deserves a medal.
This just sparkled from afar.
Great color choices and precision piecing and applique.
Funky, colorful and charming little guy!
Runner up for my “Judge’s Choice”. Gotta love those stripes.
Great free motion quilting to create the designs.
This was just so pretty. The quilting added so much texture.
You may not be able to see this in the photo, but there are hand embroidered blocks and really nice quilting.
Beautiful appplique and I love the color choices. The sawtooth border adds a lot of energy.
She used the most fun fabric for this One Block Wonder!
Sweet little Sue has been sew busy!
Oh I feel the heat from the African Plains!
Sweet applique. I love the pop of yellow and the bubbled background.
A celebration of purple!
These are the sweetest wool applique bunnies!
I love LeMoyne stars and this one is so colorful.
Beautiful applique and color choices.
You can’t see the exquisite detail in my photo. This is incredible heirloom sewing work.
Gorgeous! The simple quilting lets the applique shine.
Very cool combination of fabrics; lots of texture within an edited color palette. That piecing ain’t easy.
Oh I was so pleased to see Barbara’s jacket completed (from my class). Beautiful composition!
Fabulous color choices and the quilting choices were spot on.
This is one of the coolest Block of the Month quilts ever and the bright fabric choices really bring this to life.
Tiled machine embroidery; beautiful scene and colors.
I’d love to have this in my entry for fall! Great use of value and color.
I forget the full story, but this was an antique top that was quilted for the guild. Spectacular quilting on this colorful classic. I did not win it, sniff, sniff. Look at that lovely scalloped edge.
Lovely color choices for a fun wall hanging; love that polka dot sashing.
This is such a beautiful rendition of Dawn Star. How spectacular this would look hanging in a home.
I know you enjoyed that! I’ll be sharing at:
