Pictures from last weekend's quilt show

There were so many beautiful quilts and inspiring quilts on display at last weekend's show, I thought I'd share some pictures so you can be inspired, too! I'm sorry that a lot of the cards showing the title and the maker's name got cut off, but for large quilts it was often hard to get far enough away to get a picture of the whole quilt.

First, some of the winners:

"Best in Show" winner

"Best Use of Color" winner. This was one of my favorites in the show!

"Best Hand Quilting" winner. This was huge and amazing! I don't have the patience to hand quilt.

A close up view of the hand quilting.

This is not a closeup of the same quilt, it's one of the "Best Machine Quilting" winner, by this fabulous lady. She did this on a home sewing machine, not even a longarm. It blows my mind.

Many more pictures are after the jump!

Blue ribbon in the Appliquéd Wall Quilt category.

Red ribbon in the Original Design category (same artist as the one right above!)

Third place for Appliquéd Wall Quilt.

Third place, Group Quilt

Honorable Mention, bed size category

Honorable Mention, original design

And now for some that didn't win ribbons, but that I really liked:

This beauty was all in silk. Someday, I'll be able to afford to do this!

What an adorable Christmas quilt!

I've got a thing for paper pieced quilts!

I like the use of color in this one.

You can't tell from this picture, but the small size of the squares made the quilt really effective.

More bold color choices!

Finally, here are the other three of mine that were in the show:

"Marine Snow" (the big teal one)

"Color Me Clockwise"

"Lazy Afternoon" (at the bottom)

Now, off to cut fabric and think up some quilts for the 2013 show!
