First stop was to see what treasures Dana Balsamo of Material Pleasures had at her booth. We are never disappointed. This lovely quilt was on top for a bed turning.
Dana has a wonderful collection of early fabrics including this quail and palm tree fragment. A favorite!
This extraordinary blue ribbon winner was from the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. Threads of Friendship (Carol's Gift) is an original design made by Barbara Korengold of Chevy Chase, MD. It's 81" x 82".
A detail of the center.
Beautifully quilted. Check out those feathers!
Embellished with Chinese silk embroidery thread. Simply breathtaking!
From one extreme to the other :) Selvage Rainbow Bookcase is an original design by Jessica Skultety. She merged her two loves of quilting and reading.
All the selvages were hand appliqued using various techniques and set together by color. Love the sewing machine at the top of this stack of books.
Neighborhood by ladies of Grace Circle of Do Good Stitches, Summerland, CA; longarm quilted by Heidi Duryea. What a fun place to live!
More photos tomorrow . . .
