Well, actually, none of these are odd, but this is the end of my reporting of the quilt show. I hope you've enjoyed my perspective on the show.
Below, see the chicks with umbrellas. So cute!
The next three quilts were part of the Cover to Cover challenge displayed at the Sisters Library. Cover to Cover is a Portland based reading/quilting group. The quilters read a book and make a quilt based on it. This is Hansel and Gretel.
This is Whale Rider.
I think this one is from the Secret Life of Bees.
I love the trees on this next one.
The barns on this quilt are so well done. The round barn is my favorite.
You can read about the next two special exhibits here. Scroll down to the special exhibit section. These next three photos are from a special exhibit by Gabrielle Swain. She did a series of leaf quilts and the hand dyed fabrics are exquisite.
This is the November quilt.
And a close up of the leaves with hand quilting.
Lastly, Sarah Kaufman, another local quilter had a lovely exhibit of her work in one of the coffee shops. Sarah teaches this folded log cabin method. These are made without batting because the folded fabric makes the quilt pretty heavy. I also love her unique quilt hanging ideas.
This one isn't a good photo, but I love how she made the quilt to fit the arched window, just for framing.
Love these houses! I wasn't able to take the class that Sarah did for our guild, but I'd like to try this method some day. Her quilts are really special because she has such an eye for color and embellishment.
