The teacher's tent at the quilt show is always fun to see. I have given the name of the quilter whenever possible. Since I'm too unorganized to get the names at the show, I've had to see how close I can zoom in my photo program. It works for some, but not for others. For instance, I can't read the name on this first one, but I love the bold imagery.
This tree was done by Joanne Meyers, one of our local quilters who is in my guild. She really does lovely applique and hand quilting.
This one is another of Tonye Belinda Phillips. See how she's got more of those appliqued squares. I really like the use of the onion print in the borders to offset the squares.
This one is done by Ruth Golden Ingham, another local quilter. These are silk neckties.
This is done by Catherine Conkey and is a tribute to two of my favorite quilters. Bet you can guess who they are. I like how she added one of Freddy's chickens in the border.
I couldn't read the name on this one, but I love all the sawtooth triangles.
This one is by Karla Alexander, from Salem, Or. I really loved the construction of the leaves.
Here you can see one closer. It's a neat idea that I've got on my very long list of things to try one day.
Here's another quilt by Katie Pasquini Masopust. She does these quilts by having someone paint on paper, then cutting the paper into squares and enlarging and adapting for fabric.
And here's a close up of the quilting which I gives me some ideas for my hand quilting.
This one, called 25 Dresses, was shown by Lee Fowler. I just love the different dress fabrics and styles. This is a collaborative quilt made by Lee's friends as she recovered from surgery for cancer. It's quite a lovely tribute. Click on the link above to hear the story.
We just happened to be looking at Jane Davila's quilts when she came walking by. She was kind enough to pose for a photo. I like how Jane uses the natural world in her art quilts.
Well, that's it for now, but I think I've got one more quilt show post. Then it will be back to normal for a little while and I can show you some of the great things I've been working on. Meanwhile, take a look at Lazy Gal Quilting and Quiltville to read all about the Fungly Challenge. I'm itching to get into the sewing room and start my own!
