Favorites from Quilt Magic

Our guild's quilt show is over. Thanks goodness it is only every two years. Lots of tired but happy people by the end. We had strong competition this year from the weather, which couldn't have been lovelier. As a result, attendance was down from 2013. Here are some of my favorites.

I loved the general scrappiness of this quilt which nonetheless has structure to it - probably due to the white space provided in the sashing and piecing.

There wasn't a Best of Show; instead three ribbons of equal value were awarded by the judges in each of the categories - large, small, and miniature. This quilt was hand pieced by Kathy Fueglein and machine quilted by Candy Grisham. In the opinion of many, it was the best of show.

This was a personal favorite of mine. The colors just sing and the use of log cabin blocks as setting and corner triangles is superb. There are a fair number of checked fabrics which always add extra interest.

This hand appliqued quilt was made by Wanda Kruse, who frequently amazes us with her wonderful handwork. The pattern is by Piece O' Cake.

 Russell Horne made this beauty. Pattern by Jacqueline deJonge.

Another one by Russell Horne. This time it's a pattern by Judy Niemeyer. Russ also quilts his pieces exquisitely on his home sewing machine.

More soon! Including a Gee's Bend quilt owned by one of the guild members.

  1. I like that first one too. White + scraps = success in my book! And that log cabin border is very smart as well. Thanks for the photos!
