Rose Bell’s winning quilt-Elegance.

“Elegance” won Judges Best of Show.  Rose Bell, of Elite Quilting,

was the longarmer who quilted it.  She did a fantastic job.

This close up shows Rose’s talent and ability.  What a

great job she did.

Patti Carey, of Northcott, is the designer of this pattern.  I am unsure of

the piecer but it was a nice addition to the Show.

This quilt reminds me of Sue GArman-all the intricate

piecingin the blocks and the borders.

SONY DSC

You have to love all the colors in this quilt.

SONY DSC

Speaking of colors, what do you think about the colors in this one?

Great!!

A close up of the previous quilt.  I really love the border in this quilt.

SONY DSC

Anyone recognize this quilt?  Yes, it is my Lily. And no, it did not

win any prizes or awards.  Yes, I was disappointed but I will try to

learn something  positive from this whole experience.

SONY DSC

What  a fun quilt! This one won 2nd in the small category for

wallhangings, I do believe.  This is an  original design by the piecer too.

SONY DSC

What fun and imagination by the designer.

SONY DSC

All the pieces in the Orange Peels were hand appliqued onto the

quilt top.  And it is even hand quilted too!  It won 3rd place in the

small wallhanging category.

SONY DSC

Hexies are popular right now so this one fits in beautifully.  Wow!

Someone has alot of patience.

This is Kerry Burke’s Baltimore Album quilt-it won 1st in the small

wallhanging category.  All hand appliqued and machine quilted by

Rose Bell once again. I wanted to get the whole quilt but someone

was talking in front of it and I didn’t want to tell them to move.

SONY DSC

Here are some of the smaller wallhangings in the Show.

SONY DSC

This one is very impressionistic, I think.

SONY DSC

Love the green fabric and the ladybugs too.

SONY DSC

The leaves really do look 3D when you are close to the quilt.

SONY DSC

Looking very Canadian, eh?

The Cabin wallhanging won 1st in the Wallhanging category.  The

designer pieced the quilt from one of her photos.

The bottom wallhanging won 2nd in the small wallhanging category.

Very abstract and modern indeed.

Hope you liked the eye candy so far.  Next week, I will show you the remainder

fo the quilts.  I thought that 60 pictures of quilts might be a bit much.

Linking up with Freshly Pieced and the Canadian Needle and Thread Network.

IPM Quilt-part 2

 

As promised, I do have pictures of the completed IPM Quilt from last week.

This is what I am currently working on.  My “Add Media” button is acting up

so this is why my unfinished pictures are at the top of this post.

I will introduce Lily of Rosenberry to you.  Sue Garman is the designer of this

applique pattern.  It has taken me 2 years to get to this stage and today I am

drafting a pattern for the quilting.  The design comes from Desley over at

Addicted to Quilts.  She is from Australia and I do have her permission to

use her design to quilt this quilt.

Here is the outside area of the corner-yes, more feathers.  They  look

great with just about everything.

And here are the remaining blocks from the IPM Quilt I was working

on last week.

SONY DSC

I love the feathers in this block.

SONY DSC

This sashing area is cream but I quilted it in the same manner as the

pinky peach areas.

SONY DSC

Don’t you just love feathers?

SONY DSC

Stippling is the name of the game in this block.  I decided to quilt

it a little different-no feathers here at all.

SONY DSC

I love how the block is divided up and adds a little more interest.

SONY DSC

More feathers.

The straight lines in the pinky peach star section really emphazies

the star shape.

I am linking up to Freshly Pieced.

Hoping to have a good experience using 2 battings on the Lily of Rosenberry.

This should prove to be interesting, to say the least.

Have a good week.
