More Quilts from the Streetsboro Quilt Show
I've been sick with a horrid cold all week,
and haven't sewn a single stitch!
I'll just have to share some more of the
beautiful quilts from the Streetsboro Quilt Show!
I thought this one was especially cute...
Sunbonnet Sue in various Witch outfits!
Reminds me of our weather lately...wet & W-I-N-D-Y!!
The cobalt blue used in this beautiful patriotic quilt
was very striking and
we loved the ribbon border treatment she used on it.
I think the narrow one, above,
was one of a matching pair but I only
captured a photo of one of them.
I really liked this cardinal quilt!!
Cardinals are the state bird of Ohio.
It reminded me of Charley Harper's art work...he does similar red birds.
Also my sewing friend, Carol, did a cute little interpretation of his work that she
called: "Ode to Charley Harper" by mamacjt
The Santa & Penguin quilt had lots of 3 dimensional
aspects to it.
I wish my camera would have captured
the glittery segments as well
as the trapunto of each penguin.
Ms. C. got a kick out of this one!
A gal in my quilt guild got an award for this pink & brown
quilt & she brought
it to our meeting on Monday evening.
I told her it reminds me of "Chocolate & Strawberries".
My photos do not do it justice!
She quilted it herself on her own long arm machine.
This was a very small wallhanging, all done in wool applique.
Every single little red petal was stitched into place with what appeared to be a French knot. Gorgeous!
Can you see the little card with the pointed finger on it?
Look in the lower right hand side.
That was to indicate where you were permitted to touch the clothespin attached to the quilt so you could lift it up to see the back to admire the incredible work that went into it. Amazing!
I loved all these quilts with their vibrant colors & movement! I like the bright, happy colors!
I hope you enjoyed the show.
I wish I could have captured a photo of each & every entry for you to see.
Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House today.
