More and More Quilts!

The 2014 Coburg Quilt Show is over, except here on my blog. 😉
I’ve shown you the stars and a few of the art gallery worthy entries, so now here are few of the others that caught my eye!

The salmon…

This one is a bit deceiving. From afar, it looks like a simple geometric design, but look closer and you will find a quilt full of dragonflies!

A school(?) of sea turtles…

And a trip to the zoo!

We ran into a couple of Quilt Divas as well!

And some unique techniques.

A quilting friend told me to start saving the selvedges from my fabric so I could make a quilt like this some day. (I swear, quilters don’t waste anything!)

And here is a Crazy Quilt I might be able to do since it is large pieces instead of the tiny scraps usually associated with these quilts!

There were also some stunning examples of hand embroidery… Teapots and Presidents:

Of the several “Stack and Whack” patterns featured in the show, I think this Tulip Fans is my favorite. It was made by the Yoders. Joan pieced it and her husband, Ray, machine quilted it. He used to quilt most of my large projects, but he retired in January. He told me that since he is “80-something” he should begin to relax a little. 😉

There are so many more quilts I could show you, but instead you should just plan on joining me next year!

Until next time,
Happy Quilting!
