Rouge Valley Quilt Show - part 3

Here's the rest of the photos I took while at the quilt show.

I think this is a great quilt and that the yellow, white and gray are just right. This past week I was at a guild meeting where the guest speaker spoke about colour. She said that yellow should only take up one quarter of the quilt (or maybe it was that there should be 4 times more of some other colour.) Either way, looking at this quilt, I disagree.

It takes a lot of planning to get this quilt done.

I am sorry. I can't believe that I didn't take a photo of the whole quilt. It had appliqued buildings and trees.

Another great old pattern.

This maple leaf is a great pattern and I get a few requests for it because people pin the photo. I have to tell them that it isn't my quilt and then I direct them to the pattern. There are a couple out there in the world wide web.

I found this to be a very clean, clear quilt. Don't ask me what I mean - that's the only way I can describe my feeling towards it.

This one is always fun to look at. I have the pattern and I am hoping to do it one day.

Some of the challenge entries.

This is my last quilt photo.

Until next time. I hope you enjoyed the armchair quilt show.
