Sauder Village 2011 Quilt Show - Part 3

 Quilted Halloween eye candy...yum!  I loved this Baltimore Halloween quilt.  I didn't agree with the way it was hung, are some close ups of the blocks.

 This quilt won Best Hand Quilting.

 This won first place in the Wall Quilts: Mixed Techniques-Hand Quilted category.

I NEVER get tired of seeing this is on my quilting bucket list.

 This was a very cool wall quilt in a tough category.

 All the items on the clothesline are separate pieces.
 This was the blue ribbon winner in the Bed Quilts: Appliqued-Machine Quilted.  The cutwork frames around the roses are interesting and the machine quilting is beautiful.

 I love any kind of quilt with music in it...

 This was nice...

 This little mini featured hand-dyed silks.  This was one of my favorites...and it was so TINY!

This was made from one of Lori Smith's "fit the frame" patterns and was already small, but the maker of this little mini reduced the blocks even smaller.  It was made by Ruth Royer of Jackson, Michigan.
"Sara's Hexagon Medallion" won the ribbon for the Traditional category.  It is hand pieced (by not by the English paper piecing method) and hand quilted.

Remember the "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler" quilt?  This one is a twist in different colors.  Read the has a touching story.

And talk about a touching story, check out this next one...

Stay tuned...there are more and more...

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  10. Thanks for the fabulous mini quilt show! Great Halloween quilt (not so sure about the corner). What is the name of the pattern/quilt that was on your bucket list--the one with all the birds.
