Common Threads part II

In the first Common Threads post I showed pictures of a few of the 140 quilts entered into the judged show. In this post are quilts entered for display only: there were a total of 600 quilts hanging in the show.  Many of these quilts could have won ribbons in the judged show but their makers choose not to enter them.

Merilyn Austin made this ambitious appliqued Princess Feathers quilt by designer Kim McLean.  It is a large quilt and was hung at the end of a row facing the entrance to the show where it attracted a lot of attention.  Siriporn Hollar did a beautiful job on the quilting.

I don't especially like the Downton Abby line of fabric, but Leslie Snodgrass made a pretty quilt from it.  The pattern is Emerald Forest by Leanne Clair.  Another beautiful job on the quilting by Siriporn.

I like the bold colors in Lee Miescher's quilt.  This is a design by Heide Stoll-Weber.

This is such a clever design by quiltmaker Cathy Klusman.  She made it for her 3 year old great niece that loves Minnie Mouse and calls it For the Love of Minnie.


Susan Webert made Stars and Strips by Brendalou Scott and Liz Scott Adams.  Evelyn Gernaat did a very nice job on the quilting.

This is Moroccan Gem, made and quilted by JoAnn Blackmore from a pattern by Toby Lischko.  Great way to use that patterned fabric.

Charlotte Wolfe designed this for her shop for the 2013 Kansas Shop Hop and I really like the way she used the bold black and white chevron print in this quilt.

Lucky Gail Hand found this vintage beauty in an antique mall in Ohio. 


Such gorgeous hand quilting!

The next Common Threads post will be in two years - at our next show!


  1. Such talent, thanks for sharing. The antique quilt is fabulous. I'm a recent subscriber to your blog. I really admire your machine quilting. I have many ideas to try the next time I quilt using my domestic machine. Thanks.

  2. Attended the show and it was beyond fabulous, My phone ran out of charge so I appreciate your photos. Your work was stunning, Jan!!!!
