My Favorites From the PA quilt Show

 Is this quilt gorgeous?! I loved everything about it.
 The quilting had some wonderful features and motifs.
 Look at this flower! I still don't know how that was done, but it is fabulous!!
 The applique on this was terrific but I was really intrigued by the border. I'm not sure I've ever seen leaves done in reverse applique and in red.  It is beautiful, but I personally would like it better if it was appliqued on top of the background.
 I've seen this pattern before, but what really drew me in was the beautiful floral border fabric.
 The border on this one reminded me of the Jane Stickle quilt. I also liked to see the sampler blocks used around the medallion.
 This was the one we had out photo taken in front of. I've seen it done in pastels, but I like the bold colors so much better.
And I loved the hand quilting. You don't see too much of that anymore.

Barb from Fun With Barb & Mary posted one of my other favorites which was the village quilt. The quilting was wonderful and really enhanced the whole quilt.
Meredith at Quilt Threads posted about a terrific exhibit using antique blocks. Enjoy them at her blog.

  2. Thanks for all the photos. The BA quilt is lush. That one flower is made of many little circles. I've never felt up to attempting that. I also liked the Blackbird designs house quilt in the bold colors. Very autumnal.

  3. Thanks for posting the bright version of "home sweet home" - I am also doing it on a black background and smaller - 10" blocks instead of 20". But my houses are more "traditional." I love this bright version - so folksy!

  12. That chrysanthemum looks like it was an applique of lots of overlapping heart-shaped pieces.
