Region of York Quilt Guild show - Part Three

Well, here's the rest of the show. I do hope you have enjoyed it. There was a lot to see.

It seems like perseverance paid off.
This has a nice, clean, orderly feel to it and yet, it is made from scraps.

This looks blue but it's supposed to be various purple fabrics.

Here's a close-up of the hand quilting.

I think she did a super job on the shadows and the reflection - compared to the pattern.

 This is an older pattern but I still love it. Years ago one of our guild members made it in upholstery fabrics.


A grandmother's love - to make two of these and then hand quilt them.

Love that messy bookshelf and...

 the goldfish bowl.

Amazing what you can do with selvedges.


I think this quilt is cute. It makes me smile.

And now I will leave you with a couple of Ann Taylor's quilts.


That's it for this show. I have more photos from the quilt show I attended last weekend but I will wait a while to post them. I don't want everyone to get too overwhelmed.

Region of York Quilters' Guild show - Part Two

There were a lot of quilts in the first big room even though it looked a bit crowded. I was lucky that I didn't have to wait too long for people to move along so that I could take some of the photos. Lots of wonderful inspiration.

I do like turquoise.
The classic Seven Sisters. It's nice to see that some people are still making quilts with the old patterns.
Scraps anyone?
I found this interesting.
Sometimes there appears to be more work in the border than in the body of the quilt.
A different way of putting a nine patch together.

I really like this quilt.


And here's the buttons. They are sewn all around the border of the quilts.
As you can see, even though the quilt reads as solids, they are actually prints.

Did you find them? I did.

And now, I'd like to show you a beautifully quilted whole cloth quilt.
This one is stunning.
Just a little close-up.
And another one of the wonderful quilting.

Here's the surprise. Read it.
I'd love to meet this Amish lady.




It's not at all unusual to see the same pattern being made by several quilters. Usually, it's because there was a workshop but that wasn't the case here. I guess they just liked the pattern.
 And I leave you today with this patriotic quilt.

 I'll post the last photos in a day or so.
