Quilt Show - Part 2

Today I continue with some of my favorites and what particularly struck me at the Quilter's Crossing of Palm Harbor (FL) quilt show this past weekend.  Quite a few of the exhibited quilts had interesting embellishments.  Some were elegant and some were whimsical.  All were very artistic.

I'll start with two that cracked me up.  Quilters seem to have a great sense of humor.  This was my little froggie friend with lovely eyelashes:

And this was the dolly being repaired - be sure to read the quilter's note about the little lady's repairs:

And these were the other quilts with embellishments that caught my attention:

And last - you know it's going to be a great quilt show when even the Lady's Room has a "quilty" tile floor - ha, ha!

Quilt Show

Quilter's Crossing of Palm Harbor (FL) held their biennial quilt show this weekend.  As usual, it was delightful.  I like to walk around all of the displayed quilts first and see what's new and popular.  I then go back and take pictures of what I especially liked or ideas I thought I might use for children's quilts or quilts I was just plain in awe of.  So, this year I had lots of inspiration and will break the photos into more than one blog post.

I was surprised this year to see how many panels were used and displayed.  This was not a judged or juried show, but some of the thread painting in these panels was certainly worthy of prizes and ribbons!  Here goes a whole bunch of quilts using panels that I really liked [most photos show the entire project, then the maker's name card/description then maybe some details]:

Next post will show the creative uses of embellishments!
