Celebration of Quilts 2011

One of the nicest quilt shows in NJ is the one sponsored by Brownstone Quilters Guild, an active group that for years has held both daytime and evening meetings on a monthly basis. This year's show, Celebration of Quilts 2011, was held Friday and Saturday at Northern Highland Regional High School in Allendale, NJ.

I love the historical-themed quilts that are being made by Jill Reid, Susan McDermott, and Barb Vedder. See some of their quilts below.   

Renaissance was a blue ribbon winner in the Group or Duet Bed Quilt category. It was quilted by Barbara Khan.

This small wall quilt, Floral Charm, was made by Pauline Wilson. All the floral squares were appliqued--not pieced--to a white background.

Susan McDermott's quilt, Lincoln Blogs, won a red ribbon in the Large Wall Quilt Pieced category.

And Barb Vedder's, Remembering Abe, won a blue ribbon in the same category. Be sure to check out her blog, "Fun With Barb."

Jill Reid's quilt, With Malice Toward None, was also in the Large Wall Quilt Pieced category.

A wonderful Log Cabin quilt. 

Here's a detail.  I love the 4-patch in the center of each block.

And here is Barb Vedder's, Mother's Garden, a loving tribute to her mother.
