Crazy Quilters Quilt Guild of Lehigh Valley, PA, was selling raffle tickets for this beautiful Flower Garden quilt. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
Quintal Vases received a blue ribbon for Best Hand Workmanship. It's an original design by Becky Brown of Montpelier, VT. Machine pieced, hand applique, and hand quilted. Sat. 3/5. Oops! Becky lives in Montpelier, VA, not VT. She writes, "The signage doesn't include my information about the quilt: 18th century flower vases were my inspiration. The fingers of the vase represent each of my 5 grandchildren (4 brothers and their sister) growing and blooming." Thank you, Becky!
The next two quilts were part of the Baltimore Applique Society Exhibit, Applique's Third Golden Age.
Elizabeth MacCullough Hervey circa 1848-50 was made by Kelly Kout of Bowie, MD and hand-quilted by Bellweather Drygoods. The pattern is available from the Baltimore Applique Society.
Folk Fantasy was made by 65 members of the Baltimore Applique Society as a raffle quilt in 1994-95. The patterns are from Jeana Kimball's book, Nature's Chorus.
Best In Show
Best In Show was Silk Road Sampler by Melissa Sobotka, Richardson, TX. Inspired by a vendor's ornate pillows at an Istanbul spice bazaar.
One Big Quilt!
I'll post more pics soon.
