More from the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show

Hi there! Hope your weekend was good!

Here we go with some more quilts from the show! Hop..hop..hop..

First we have "Symphoney of Roses" created by Barbara Clem of Rockford, IL. Look at the scalloped edges! Look at the hand quilting! Oh my!

Next is "America the Beautiful" by Barbara Massengill of Sandford, NC. See the bunnies? Sooooooooo Cute!

Then there is "Crazy with a Twist" from Mary Chalmers of Willmar, MN. Notice the blue ribbon!

Check out all that embroidery work! Oh my gosh!

Finally we have "Crazy Sheep" from Debora Konchinsky.

Debora was an instructor at the show. I featured her work last year as well.

Looooooooooove it!

Do you have a favorite?

All the quilts are so beautiful. I love that last sheep. It looks so realistic!

Rachel said...

If I HAD to pick one, I would pick America the Beautiful, I am a sucker for scenic quilts :-)

Jade said...

They are all adorable (and the sheep quilt is not baaaaaad ;) ), but I'd have to go with "America the Beautiful" because of the bunnies and because it looks like home.

Oh my gosh, that's HAND quilting in the Symphony of Roses quilt?! I am in awe of them all but that takes the cake, amazing! Thanks for sharing these amazing quilts Shell!

Thank you for sharing these with us! I love the last 2! The crazy quilt is beautiful, that is the kind of crazy quilt embellishing I like the best! Enough embroidery to make it beautiful, but not so much that is obscures the quilt itself. The sheep is something to study and learn from. I love the images!

Hi Shell, I can't make up my mind which one I like best because I love them all. I know hand quilting takes hours, hours, and hours because my mother use to hand quilt. I am trying to catch up with my reading since we got home from the hospital. Hubby had a problem. We just know he didn't have a heart attack. More doctor appointments. Take care. Hugs from your Missouri Friend.

Those are some amazing quilts. I think I liked America the Beautiful the best. Those judges must have had a difficult time.

I like Crazy Sheep. It reminds me of staying at The Carriage House(Farm Stay America)at Kokovoko Farm in KY. I was pony shopping. Leslie of Kokovoko raises ponies and sheep. They view out the bedroom window looks out on a hillside and you can see sheep and ponies in the morning as the sun rises and the roosters crow.
