Common Threads Quilt Show - the final installment


This is a miniature Baltimore album quilt, hand appliqued and hand quilted by Trudy Carpenter.  It won Viewer's Choice for miniature quilts.  Her work is beautiful!

This is an amazing quilt made by Mary Ann Moore.  The pictures in the blocks are all done with tiny crosshatching.  Siriporn Hollar did the quilting, that's Siriporn standing next to the quilt.

I wish I had a better close up.  This quilt won Viewer's Choice for large quilts.

Cosmic Kaffe Fassett Circles made and quilted by Karen Armstrong.  The pattern is Dot to Dot by Nancy Mahoney.

Midori Melton made the next quilt, Interlocking Stars, from a pattern she found on the Fons and Porter website.  Quilted by Kim Hull.

I really like this one: Thistlecreek Crossing made and quilted by Karen Tombaugh for her granddaughter.  It's a Judy Niemeyer pattern.

This is the back, so it's a reversible quilt!

Chocolate and Blueberries made by Cheryl Nordstedt and quilted by Wanda Hiebert.  The pattern is by Toby Lischko

This is A Little Bit Tipsy, the quilt I donated to our Mini quilt auction.

This is the Prairie Quilt Guild Opportunity Quilt with it's lucky new owner, Eva Peterson.  I have been babysitting this quilt all year and it was hard to let it go!  It found a good home with a quilter who really appreciates it.

These are the tomatoes that I brought home from the local Farmer's Market.  They are so good that I eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner!


  1. The opportunity quilt must have been really hard to let go, but it looks like it went to a good home. Thanks for sharing all the beautiful quilts.

  2. Wow, how wonderful to watch over such a beautiful quilt. So glad it is going to a caring home. Thanks so much for sharing all the photos of the show. So much beautiful and inspiration.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie
