These last few pics below are my last from
The NQA show that was in central Ohio last weekend...
All of the quilts in the show were wonderful.
I know that there is/are
certain criteria that need be met
to be chosen "a winner" in any quilt show.
But, I'm here to tell you
that even though I'm not qualified to be a judge,
all of the entrants and their quilts
were winners in my book!!
Some of The Winner's Circle:
Small Quilts - Mixed Technique:
|Old Glory by Judy Huffman, maker & quilter|
|Red & Green Revisited by Teri Henderson Tope, maker & quilter|
Large Quilts - Pieced:
|America, Let it Shine|
by Sherry Reynolds
an original design.
|Red Letter Daze|
by Janet Stone - maker and Quilter
She was inspired by cross stitch Quaker samplers.
The blocks were pieced or appliqued,
bound, and then appliqued onto the background.
Alphabet and scrolls were free-motion embroidered.
did you notice the statement that I made bold?
She did Hot Pad Blocks!
and then appliqued them onto a background!!!
HOT PAD BLOCKS!!!
Similar to the Civil War quilts and their Hot Pad block quilts!
I would have liked to have been able to talk to Ms. Stone at the show - not only about all of the history she put into her quilt, but also her inspiration in the way that she finished it.
Now, I'll have to start making better Hot Pads! :)
