As Promised--The Quilts

Scenes from HMQS
Click on the smaller photos below each quilt to read the tags. I haven't checked them all.
I hope they aren't too blurry. When you enlarge the tag photos you also get a better view of the quilting.
Nearly Insane--there was another one of these quilts in different colors, but I forgot to get the tag.

 Love these busy little blocks.

Made from Men's ties.

 So tiny and precise. I had my friend put her hand there to get the size perspective.

 Inspired by Italian Mosaics.

 This was so real looking. The tag explains the technique used.

 This one is all reverse applique. Wow!

 I thought this was just beautiful.

 Sure caught my attention from across the room.

 Remember this one from MQX? It won best of show here, too. Remember, it was quilted on a Bernina DSM. I can't fathom that.

 And they hung it so you could see the back of the quilt, too.

Just black fabric--the color is all thread.

 What a striking color combo.

That's enough. Just a quick post because I said I would.
Can you pick a favorite? I think I still prefer the Pine Burr from my previous post. : )
Until next time,
Janet O.


  1. wow, what super quilts....must have been an awesome show...can't choose a favorite either

  2. AMAZING quilts...thank you so much for sharing them with us!

  3. WOW - Blew my socks off!!! (Okay, so it's early morning and I don't even have my socks on yet! LOL) Totally amazing! Favorite - the four patch chain with the stars - did you have to ask! Love the little quilt - flying geese with stars too! Okay, so I pretty much liked them all!
    Happy Mother's Day!

  4. I'm always overwhelmed by the beauty and variety of quilts from a show. There are some masterpieces here! Absolutely wonderful inspiration. They opened my eyes just as much as my first of cup coffee beside me.
    Thanks for the Sat. a.m. treats.

  5. I am glad you photographed the tags. I was wondering how the big bird was created but the tag gave me the info. I am guessing that most of the fabric was batiks. A very interesting quilt.
    Some of those quilts have lots and lots of small pieces. Beautiful quilts.

  6. What a collection of truly incredible quilts... amazing!

  7. Crazy! Hard to imagine the time that went into all these quilts. BeautifuL!

  14. Gracious, what a show!!! That spiral color rainbow piece was AWESOME!!! :)

  15. SO many beautiful quilts. Just beautiful.
    I love it when they are hung to see front and back.
    Makes me want to go sew...
    Thank you for sharing!

  16. what a lovely selection of quilts! The pattern for the second one down is called "omigosh" and I am making one of those. It uses 1" strips and is just darling but I am currently on a "break" to gather back some of my sanity :)

  17. My favorite is the pastel one with the scalloped edge. Not an easy choice. They are all pretty amazing like you said. Thanks for posting them for us to see closer.

  18. Wow! I can't believe all the different styles!
    My two favorites are the "Ginger Belle" and "Oh My Gosh".
    That one with the black fabric and colored thread is amazing.
    (Sorry I didn't respond to your email on Friday. With all that was going on I just didn't even check my email this weekend.)

  19. These are all so beautiful. I especially love the red, white and blue one. The Daily Blog has a video interview with the maker currently posted.

    Thanks for sharing!

  20. Thanks for sharing, Janet. These are some really awesome quilts! Glad you had a good time and learned a lot. Always good to get a few tips and inspiration.

  21. Wow! I am stunned with all those amazing quilts! Thanks so much for sharing them Janet! I managed to get to Paducah for one day but had a class in the morning and very little time left for viewing quilts. That Nearly Insane is gorgeous but it would definitely drive me insane to try to make one! I don't think I could pick a favorite, unless it would be that marvelous miniature - JUST WOW!!!

  22. Holy Cow, now that is a quilt show! Many beautiful quilts to drool over. Thanks for sharing.

  23. thank you for sharing all these

    hard to choose a favorite I have to think about it!
