This was a beautiful quilt made with 6" blocks using Civil War reproduction fabrics.
And a close up of it:
I believe it was all hand quilted. Her piecing was perfect.
I found that I was attracted to the blue quilts - this one had two of my favorite blocks, a star and a log cabin.
And a close up:
This one was made of several different aqua prints. It was such a calm, peaceful quilt.
And another close up:
Another two color quilt. This one was so simple and calming also. I can see this on a white chippy wicker love seat on my front porch!! Maybe a similar one will be in my future...
This was probably my favorite one. It was made by a dear friend of mine and is called Carolina Christmas. The pattern is by Bonnie Hunter. I love scrap quilts but the best ones are 'controlled scrap quilts'. This one was wonderful.
I took close ups of a lot of the quilts I liked and of course I took a close up of this one too!
One more made by my friend from another one of Bonnie Hunter's patterns: Roll Roll Cotton Bowl. There are a lot of half square triangles in this!
We were in awe of the creativity and the beautiful quilts we saw. These are just a small portion of the show but every single one of them displayed was beautiful in it's own way. I admire the handiwork of the ladies who shared their beautiful quilts with us.
I have just got a new camera and am still learning how to use it... so I apologize that my pictures do not give these quilts their due. I hope that you all are able to go to a quilt show at some point, whether it is a small local one or a larger regional or national one. It is well worth your time!!
