Quilt show part 2

Photobucket
Are you ready for more? Do you have your ice cream? Alright, let's go.
This little table runner and the apple quilt below were made by another co-worker, Sharon.

I love this apple quilt! I've seen this pattern in all red apples before but I love how Sharon threw in a few Granny Smiths and Golden Delicious apples too. (Sharon has a great eye for color.) I think the added colors totally make the quilt. And it makes me hungry.

Is your mind blown?
Have you ever seen an Oh My Gosh quilt before? Those little 9-patch blocks are teeny-tiny.
This quilt was also made by Marilyn Yerkes. It is a work of art. And some serious labor. And I am so stupid I only got this close-up and never got a picture of the whole thing. Absolutely amazing, I tell you.

Here is a close-up of this little sampler quilt made with April Cornell's Poetry line. The blocks were all beautifully pieced. I am embarrassed that I didn't get the name of the maker on this quilt (or on most of them. I hate for these women not to get the recognition they deserve.)

Once again, check out the tiny pieces in these blocks. Beautifully pieced.

Another cute quilt from our favorite Robots fabric.

This gem was made by Mindy Johnston (Amy McClellan's daughter) out of reproduction prints. I love how the blocks are all the same pattern, but all look different because of the variety of colors used and where the fabric is placed.

This fan quilt is an antique. Great prints, as always, in those old quilts.

Check out this whimsical Christmas quilt. Great fabrics in new quilts too!

And the ice cream sundaes were great too.
(Recognize the turquoise sandals?)

Thanks for stopping by. I wish we could have done it together in person. Next year I promise to give more notice so you can all make arrangements to come.

  3. Thanks for sharing more pictures. That one quilt with the tiny nine patches is incredible. I am glad you pointed out that one quilt with the same blocks but different color placement. I didn't even realize they were the same block until you said something. Cool!

  12. The quilt show looks like a wonderful event. I kept wondering "where is this"? then I saw Amy M. house, I met her in her shop this summer when I attended the quilt shop hop in Utah. My daughter has made Amy's cute Christmas Stockings.I love her quilt shop. Glad I found your blog.
