Lots of Quilt Show Photos!

Block Party Quilters had their annual show this past weekend, and I have a few photos from my morning there. As you can see there were lots of quilts to see.


 I seem to gravitate to the quilts that include some embroidery, however, I didn't find a single Crazy Quilt. This is one of Lynette Anderson's designs which I love.


 Besides embroidery and cute buttons, the squirrel, bunny, owl, and fox were appliqued, in wool, I think.

Aren't the flowers fun?

This interesting quilt was mostly Bible verses.


All that printing must have taken a lot of time and patience to embroider!



I really liked the alphabet on this part.


Our quilt group had two quilts displayed that we all worked on. (My block is the the dog with the pink collar.) We plan to donate this quilt to the Humane Society auction. The pattern is called
"Gone to the Dogs," but I don't remember the designer.



This quilt was my idea from a pack of blocks I purchased in Minnesota.  We all had fun choosing the fabrics.

My block was this one. This quilt will be given to someone at the local Ronald MacDonald house.

Linda from our group had several quilts on display. This lovely one was made for her friend using the friend's mother's antique hankies.  If you double click on it, you might be able to see her pretty embroidery.  Each basket is different, too.


Linda is very good at applique and piecing also as you can see on this quilt! Isn't it cute?



  I hope one of her quilts won an award!



 Isn't this an amazing example of applique?  I don't know who did this one.  Next time I'll follow Deborah's idea and also photograph the information.



The 3-dimensional flowers were so pretty!


I love anything red and white!


Never before had I seen Dresden Plates combined with something else like these stars.


This small quilt has interesting colors and some fun embroidery.

A great fall quilt, don't you think?
So, there you have it, lots of photos from a fun show. The one thing I forgot to photograph was the most unique item at the show, and it didn't have anything to do with quilts at all! A very friendly gentleman was demonstrating his restored antique sock knitting machine; I had no idea there was such a thing, but it must work pretty well because he had lots of pairs of socks for sale. Check the link, so you can see that it looked rather  like a meat grinder!

Wow, girl! Is there any needlework you DON'T do? LOL

The quilts are all beautiful, but I'm real partial to the pumpkin one with the spider. So cute.

Hi Judy! Oh no! I'm once again late getting photos to you from the quilt show! Your photos did turn out nice, but I would have liked to seen you in one of them...maybe you can still post one of yourself when I get them to you! Sorry. I really had a fun time! Do you know if your friend's quilts won an award yet?

Not the show I was thinking of! =) What wonderful quilts and I loved the view from your first photo. Looks like vendors, so what did you buy? =) I think the Bible Verses might be a Jenny of Elefantz design! Your two group quilts are wonderfully done - the dogs so amusing, and I liked your friend's chicks and pinwheels, too. Such fat little chicks!
