2013 Shipshewana Quilt Festival, Part Five...

Hello...more pictures from the show (can you tell I was there by myself...LOL).  This one won first place in the large, mixed technique category.

OK, drumroll...this next one was Best in Show.  I think it won Best in Show at Houston in 2012 as well.

There were a lot of jaws on the floor in front (and in back) of this quilt, as you can imagine.

And here's the view from the back...they displayed it without the black curtain behind it.

Cute bunnies...

I think this is a Robert Callahan design.

The next one was designed from a desired carpet.

This next one had amazing hand quilting...no ribbon...

I think I have another batch of pictures for one more post...I hope you aren't tired of beautiful quilts yet...

In stitches,
Teresa   :o)


  1. Thanks for sharing these lovely quilts.

  2. WOW this is a fantastic Quilt Show-enjoying all the posts. I don't envy the judges with so many amazing entries.

  3. Great pictures, especially liked the close ups of Let It Shine.

  4. wish I could have been there with you , what amazing quilts,
    thanks for sharing

  5. AMAZING! There is so much talent portrayed here! I have to admit that my jaw is one of those that is on the floor. "America, Let it Shine" is THE most amazing piece of art that I've ever seen. Speechless...and that doesn't happen very often. :) Thank you for sharing with us!

  6. Some more lovely quilts here. It's a good thing I wasn't a judge because that one does nothing extra for me. Actually, I like the back much more than the front. I love that first Appalachian flower quilt. I am just amazed by the quilting on all of them. That's the artistry that I want to acquire somehow. Or even just a smidge of it.

  7. thank you so much for all the quilt show pictures. I can never get enough! I live in an area that used to have a major show, but hasn't for over 5 years now. I miss going to the shows, so it's such a treat so see all the quilts from other shows

  8. Awesome quilts! And thanks for so many close up pics! And that Austrian Rapture (the one designed from a carpet) has the most amazing hand quilting on it! Wow!

  9. That's one amazing show. Gorgeous quilts, thanks for sharing.

  10. Absolutely jaw dropping and inspirational quilts! I really need to go next year!

  11. Thanks for posting all the photos...really enjoyed going through them!

  12. Thanks for showing the lovely quilts. I really like the top one and the blue and white.

  13. Thank you for sharing all those great photos.

  14. wow wow wow, that top patriotic quilt is stunning and no ribbon? and the blue paducah one too, amazing..... drool wish I was at that show, very inspiring! btw I can't find the bird or animal in the log cabin quilt you didn't take close ups of it :-)
