I snuck out last Friday afternoon and went to a local quilt show. This particular guild is very active and usually puts on a really good show. I certainly wasn’t disappointed this year.
There was a display of
quilts that I could use for inspiration for my Quilts of Valor. These were my two favorites: Americana
|Quilt by Sue Walworth; Quilted by Melissa Krushwitz|
|Quilt by Nancy Morrison; Quilted by Quilting Ladies|
of N. Halifax Fire Dpt Aux, Nathalie, VA -
this was 8 wall hanging designs that the quilter
used together to make a full size quilt - very clever!
|By Jean Ancher|
|By Barbara Campbell|
|By Jin Cavanaugh - Jin used a Margie Engel|
technique of using pre-printed panels with strip pieced
block designs; also includes trapunto!
|By Margo Lurz|
And those Twisters were tiny! The pinned on fabric
"hand" was indicating that it was hand quilted/
|By Rosaria Colosi|
Natalie was trapped in the intake canal of a power plant -
she was perfectly happy since she was warm and fed
lettuce, but she was eventually captured and released

Embroidery Designs by Sarah Vedeler
And last, I won the bid in the silent auction for this mini quilt in Civil Was repro fabrics. I loved everything about it, from the fabric choices, to the blocks, to the beautiful workmanship.
