Eye Candy time!

I helped to set up the quilt show yesterday.  These quilts are the art category winners...first is in the middle, second is on the left and third is on the right.  When we got done hanging up the quilts, they had to put up the signage and ribbons.  So I don't know who made every thing or what they won!  Good reason to go to the show this weekend!

This is my quilt for the challenge they had!  We had to be inspired by a song.  this is "Swan Lake."  Flamingoes love to dance ballet!  this one is on an algee free diet, so she isn't pink.  They did tell me I got a second place for this!

This is Gloria Felter's "Ninety Six Tears".  Love it!!!

Other challenge pieces.

And one more that was interesting with the selvage prints!

Some one did this dragon with the batiked panel.

This is my "Ice Dragon".  Did some beading on it.

I think this is one by Candace Tucker...

Linda Roy's!

Don't know who did this, but I love it!

I helped to hang up the quilts here.  Art Category.

Sometimes I'm in such a hurry to get a picture that it's out of focus a bit....

Love things that are different!!!

The sheep are so cute!

This is so much better in person.  It just shines.

The chickens are adorable!  Great applique.

Closeup work!

The puppy is so cute! 

Another beautiful quilt.

The waterfall has some felting in it. 

The modern quilts are getting better and better.

I don't do paper piecing.  Just have a terrible time getting it right.  So I do appreciate all that went into this one!

Gloria's other quilt in there!  I love the whole design!

Sometimes simple designs are so clear and wonderful.

And then there is mine... Warp 9.  The camera didn't like it!  I did do a lot of big stitch with embroidery in it.  Cut some holes and stitched them back. 

Here's my other modern one.  Out side the Lines.  I had it basically quilted and done with out the circles.  And it looked too I added the circles at the very end!

This is so neat and clean lines!  I love it.  There was a lot of this style back in the 70's.  Nice to see up dates to designing.

This one I have seen in magazines, and the Paducah quilt show. 

I just thought this was cute!

Another nice modern design.

Closeup of the quilting in it!

This one belongs to someone else, but I did quilt it.  She bought the top in an antique shop and just couldn't leave it unfinished. 

This is really nice.  Picture doesn't to it justice.

And my big one!  Tide Pools.  Just love the colors in it.  It was in a show last year and several people asked me if it was for sale.  I really want to keep this one for our house.

Right next to it is this cool one.  Love the colors in it!
Go to see shows!  They are inspiring to me!  And put your quilts out there to be seen.  I don't win much, but I love to see them up.  And other people love to see quilts up close.  At a quilt meeting,  people hold their quilts up for just a minute or two and it's gone.  Nice to see them at a distance and then go up close!
I didn't get a chance to really see if there were a lot of hand quilted quilts.  I do love those.  So many are machine quilted, and I do like them, but being a hand quilter, I just love to see that someone has taken the time to put each stitch in by hand. 
I'm going to try and get back down to the show tomorrow.  Be nice to see who got ribbons and who made some of these I haven't see before.     The show is at Maryville College, Maryville, TN.

  1. Great show. Thanks for sharing. I won't be able to see the show so this is a real treat. Sometimes at our meetings we leave the quilts in the back so our memembers can look at each quilt up close.

    Love the show
