Another quilt show - Part two

And so, here is the final installment of the Yorkshire Rose Quilt show.

I do like the American southwest and the art that comes from that area. This was another favourite of mine from the show.

I think this was started in a workshop. Black, white, a bit of yellow and my favourite blue.

Weaver Fever is what this pattern is called.

It is amazing what one can do with scraps. I really like this layout.

Bright colours with black to set them off.

This lady really liked making these little quilts.

They were really cute and would make a nice addition to a child's room.

This quilt came about from a crayon challenge. Each participant picked a crayon from a paper bag and was to create a quilted item using the name of the colour of the crayon as inspiration. Tropical Rain Forest was the colour of the crayon.

A bright New York Beauty.

This hand quilted, whole cloth quilt is by my friend Penny who made it as a wedding gift for a young lady to whom she was a nanny.
The backing is a tone on tone yellow.

A close-up of the quilting.

This was a little different.

As you can see, this one won a prize. It was part of a challenge.

An explanation of the quilt.

This was part of the same challenge. I'm sorry I didn't take a photo of the fabric that was to be used. I was in a bit of a time crunch.

Just a couple of fabrics makes a nice quilt.

Here's a close-up of the machine quilting. I wonder what's so antique about the star?

I love everything about this little quilt.

I should have taken a closer look at this one to see if those are in fact little tiny pieced triangles in the sashing.

A star within a star. The border print might have made a good selection for a One Block Wonder quilt.

I saw this quilt from afar and it wasn't until I got up close and really looked at it that I realized what it was.

I love the explanation for the title.

Another little quilt that caught my eye.

For you Jacobean quilt design fans. It is, of course, hand quilted.

I agree with her on the vibrant colours.

For those of you in love with hexagons. I almost forgot to photograph this one my first time viewing it but I spied it again on my way out.

I like the way she positioned the striped ones. That's a lot of machine quilting.

And now, if you were oooohing and ahhhhing the hand appliqued Jacobean quilt and/or the hand piecing of the hexagon quilt, feast your eyes on this one.

It is a log cabin quilt in the barn raising setting BUT...

it's all yo-yos.

That's it, that's all.


  1. I was all agog over the rain forest quilt and THEN I got to the log cabin at the bottom!! Oh my....the patience that must have taken!!

  2. An awesome show of beautiful and unique quilts there!!! Thanks for sharing them Dolores!! 8-)

  3. Thank you for taking us to the quilt show!

  4. Wonderful quilts! Thanks for sharing. I recognized the first one. It was taught by Lucy Ann at Quilters Garden a long time ago. I asked them to order me the pattern, but it never came. I still love it and want to do that quilt.

  5. The yo-yo quilt is really different...even I could maybe at a stretch make something like that...maybe:)

  6. I was at the show on Sunday and quite enjoyed the quilts, the venue, etc. It was lovely to see the quilts all over again .... many thanks for sharing!

  7. Hi! Greetings from Finland! Thank you so much for sharing the photos! The quilts are fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters from the other side of the world and see the quilts they make! Thank you for your blog! :)
