Eye candy for a holiday weekend...


Well said!!  I love this Amy Bradley quilt made by Judy.


I'm finally getting to posting more pictures from the 2012 Sauder Village Quilt Show from earlier this month.




This quilt was inspired by a beautiful children's book that came out a couple of years ago.



Excuse my poor photography!  This fishy quilt was one of many that attracted a crowd, and hasty execution of taking a picture was required.

I loved the colors, the 3-D fish and the fishing lure that is attached near the center.





There were two "Tree of Life" quilts (Edyta Sitar) present, with slightly different settings.



Have you seen these "veggie cat" patterns?  This setting was fun and well done.









Since it is Memorial Day, I should share this nice patriotic quilt.



This setting is longer...a few more tree blocks than the one above.  Both quilts are beautiful (a "Tree of Life" quilt is on my bucket list...).


A nice pictorial quilt from a Sauder Village challenge (there is a really nice quilt shop AT THE VILLAGE!).



 Tricky piecing and a use of old shirts...



 Another nice pictorial quilt...



This was one of my very favorite quilts at the show...my favorite colors, a simple setting, and absolutely BEAUTIFUL hand quilting.







My pictures don't do any of these wonderful
quilts justice, especially this one.  Well executed and designed with ceramic tiles as inspiration.






This Calico Garden quilt reminded me of one Barb was involved with a year or two ago.  This one is small, a wall hanging size.





This was clever...it is made from Crown Royal bags...they used every part!










More quilts next post...I hope you have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  14. Hi Teresa,
    I emailed you privately with some hand sewing questions. Please look for it, maybe it went to your junk folder. I'd love to hear back from you on the questions I have.
    thanks,
