If you quilt at any level, or even enjoy looking at the textiles, you cannot help but be in awe of the handiwork that went into each and every one of them.
There were simple, contemporary patterns that let the quilting of the piece be the focus (look closely at the striped quilt) and traditional patterns.
The piecing and movement of the quilts blew us away. And remember, these were constructed before the days of modern quilting gadgets such as rotary cutters and fancy rulers. And the quilting on these were certainly not done on any long arm machine with computer design!
Just about every pattern was represented from tiny piecing, to applique and redwork.
I hope you enjoyed some of the photos that I snapped at the show. It was very inspiring and makes me want to do a simple color combination quilt. What do you think about the red and white quilts? Does this collection inspire you to quilt in red and white? Or to hand quilt?
