More Eye Candy

Thought I would share some more eye candy from our show with you. Give you a peek at some of the other ribbon winners from the NQA judging. Above is my friend Joan's quilt - Dresden Delight, which got 2nd in the Applique, Machine (Long or Home) Quilted category. I helped her figure out the setting for this and talked her into using purple - isn't it great!

Below is another one of Joan's - Dresden Fans. Can you tell she LOVES 30's fabrics! She got 3rd place in the Applique, Machine (Long or Home) Quilted category for this.

The next one below is another friends quilt - Lynn, who got 3rd place in Pieced Bed Long Arm Quilted. Look all those great blue fabrics.

And this is another friend Madelyn's - Illinois Hard Times 2011. This got 2nd place in Bed Pieced Long Arm Quilted. Isn't it wonderful! A bit more about this quilt:
"the orginal of this quilt is owned by Marti Michell, circa 1900-1910 made in Tennessee. The name of the quilt is Tennessee Hard Times. The pattern was taken from scrap, patchwork and quilting by Marti Michell. Madelyn used all reproduction fabrics to make this quilt similar to the original. Obviously, 1900-1910 was a hard time for the generation, and here we are today in 2011 going through difficult and challenging times. It's fitting to call this quilt "Illinois Hard Times 2011"".

The next is my friend Sharon's quilt - Wildflowers. She got 1st place in Pieced Bed Home Machine Quilted. The flowers are machine embroidered and appliqued on.

Next is Pam's - Pieceful in Fall quilt. She got 2nd in Pieced Lap Long Arm Quilted. Pam does wonderful machine quilting.

This is LeAnn's "Fit to be Geese" quilt which got 1st place in Pieced Lap Machine Quilted".

They one below is one of my favorites by my friend Lynn - Stars Divided. She got 3rd place in Pieced Small, Hand Quilted. Don't you just love those stars and fabrics!

Now for you wool lovers - check this one out by Mary - Wool Bed Rug. This got 1st place in Applique Machine (Home or Long) Quilted. Isn't it a beauty. The applique is wool but the background is flannel.

Last but not least is Pam's Autumn Sunflower. She got 2nd in Art Quilt - Original Design Any Size.

More tomorrow.
