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.
Just Beautiful!!!


 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.

  1. I'm praying that you feel better soon. It seems that so many people in so many places are down with rotten colds. The quilts are magnificent! I've never quilted, but I am constantly in awe over the meticulous detail work that goes into each piece. Thanks so much for sharing these with us. Cherry Kay

  2. Oh goodness Rett, I hope your cold goes away soon. However, thank you for taking the time to let us experience more of the gorgeous quilt show. Oh my gosh, it's hard to pick a favorite. At each one, I'd think... Oh, that's the one! What exceptional colors, detail and love went in those works of art. Feel better soon. xo

  3. I hope you're feeling better by now. Thank you for sharing these great quilts. I especially liked the pink and brown one.

  4. What a wonderful exhibit you have just taken us through. My fave would be the cardinals but I am always partial to more graphic designs. The ALLLLL are wonderful. Thanks so much, Rett, and I sure hope you are back in form soon.

  5. Feel better, honey! Bad colds are the worst! Love all the quilts. I felt like I was right there with you!

  6. How wonderful these are,dear Rett, and I hope you feel better soon. xo

  7. I loved seeing all this beautiful quilt art. Aren't they each and every one just beautiful !

    Yes, my old blog is still there...I can click on OLDER POSTS and pull up each and every post. I am locked out of design layout or control at all.
    Every member of my family nearly has tried to no avail.
    Thanks so much ....xoxo bj
    oh, my email is
    I must put that on my new blog...:)

  8. I am always in awe of the talent of quilters! I really loved the felt quilt of the geraniums.

  9. Gorgeous quilts Rett! Love the whimsy of the umbrellas and I'm always fascinated by the fabrics and amount of work that go into them!

    Hope you're feeling better from your cold, do you use zinc? It zaps my taste buds when I take it but nothing tastes good anyway and it seems to reduce the severity and longevity.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I read them all & each one is so very special to me & I try really hard to return the visit!
