I was impressed with the show and can't believe the Dallas Guild puts it on every year! It's a big show with lots of vendors and some very nice quilts - and it is not a juried show. Here are some of my favorites:
I love this cat quilt - You Talkin' ta Me? by Tonya Littman. That cat looks like a real character.
This is Wrought Iron and Roses by Janette Huff. Some very nice quilting on this one, done on DSM.
Blue Diamonds, by Lynn McCartney. I like the way the motifs are quilted in a contrasting color, surrounded by thread that matches the background.
I especially like the border from Folk Art in Bloom by Richard Larson.
This quilt was inspired by a book with the same name: An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles by Mary Shepherd. I gave the book to Peter years ago and always thought it had a quilt in it. Somebody beat
me to it!
I think this was my favorite quilt of all: Everyday in Blossoms by Eun Yeon Yoo. Really beautiful hand workmanship, from the crazy quilted center to the doll dress blocks which were so tiny -and smocked and embroidered.
My quilt Indian Summer won a ribbon too - probably it's last since it is about at the end of it's shelf life as a show quilt.
I had more good news today: my quilt Tree of Life - with Bugs won a ribbon at the AQS show in Lancaster. Here is a link to the winners.
What great quilts they are, but I do like that cat one........... I can almost hear him purring.ReplyDelete
Wow I love the wee smock, GMG quilt!ReplyDelete
What great quilts! The cat one has personality all right and beautiful handwork on Everyday in Blossoms. Congratulations on your wins!ReplyDelete
How exciting. :D I just love your quilt. Thanks for sharing these others, as well. We don't get any big shows in our area, so I really love it when folks share their visits. And thank you for being meticulous about the quilters' info. :)ReplyDelete

Congratulations on both of your wins! I always look forward to your posts. You do such beautiful work.
