These are in no particular order......and I took shots of ones that I either really liked, or there was something different about it that intrigued me. Most are not the 'show winners'.....of course......they NEVER pick the ones I think they should! Why is that? lol
These next 7 quilts are from Pepper Cory's collection of antique or made-by-her quilts. They are of the theme "Orange and Back".
This quilt was a stunner.....the biased strip celtic design was really amazing. Click on the close up shots to really see the applique and hand quilting! The two close up shots are the real colors of the quilt. The lighting in the Radisson was NOT meant to show quilts by.....everything faded out, or was in the dark shadows of corners.....I had so many shots that didn't come out at all! Dang!
This one was sweet.....a view of the beach.....complete with towels and cabanas! lol
The micro-stippling on this was just beautiful.....love it!
Ok.....this quilt might not look like much from a distance, but check out the close-ups! OMG! Definitely click on the pics.....the machine quilting was phenomenal! The middle pic is the true color.
These two close ups are the only pics I have of this ribbon winning quilt......it was huge, nearly king sized, and from a distance my pic was just muddled color. It won the ribbon for Best Hand Embellishment. These two pics each show about a 6 inch section of this monster quilt.....and the whole thing had felted-wool animals and trees and flowers all over it!
Lots of art quilts.....not usually my cup of tea......but I think I'm being persuaded! :o)
This show featured contest winners from nine different countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK and the US. And there were over 70 vendors at this show! Woohoo! This show of quilts travels the country, and has upcoming events in PA, CA, FL, VA, NJ, and CO. I think you can google World Quilt Show to see where they will be. It was definitely worth the 2.5 hour drive to get to it! Of course, we made a stop at Keepsake Quilting, but we were very restrained and saved all of our $ for the show! lol
Hope you have a great day! Will post again soon with more of the show!
