Shipshewana Quilt Festival, Part Four...

Are you ready for more inspiration?  I thought this quilt was so much fun.  I think it is her own design...stunning...

I agree that there wasn't enough hand quilting at the show.  I wonder if there weren't that many submitted to be juried.  I really enjoyed studying this one.  Again, no ribbon...

I especially loved the small Baptist fan quilting motif just outside the stop border, in combination with the piano key motif.

I like the half-pieced stars for the border on the next one.

This next wall hanging won 3rd place for small, applique.

The flowers are 3-D...COOL!

It was hard to elbow in and get pictures of this one...everyone wanted to spend time looking at all the things on the bookshelves.  The books and bricka-bracka incorporated selvages, clothing labels, fabric badges, a crown royal bag, cross stitch, applique, novelty much to see!

Did you enjoy your daily dose of quilt show...there are still more to come...

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)


  1. Wonderful quilts! Keep 'em coming. I'm enjoying the show.

  2. amazing work - thanks so much for sharing with us - such inspiration!

  3. I am still 'wowing' from all the quilts from your last post!

  4. Every quilt has something wonderful for the viewer to see. The mariners compass is a very clever design.

  5. Awesome show! Thanks for sharing! They're all SO fantastic!

  6. Wow! Really love Elegant Garden - you hardly ever see Baltimore Beauties in autumnal colors. It really works. I loved Maggie Moo too, and BBK makes me want to just study every shelf. I can see why it had crowds of people around it.

    So, what did you think of the judging? Was there lots of disbelief being verbalized regarding ribbon placement? And what won best of show and people's choice?

    Thanks for sharing,

  9. Did you piece the books or did you use application. I trying to add a small book case as part of a large quilt and I'm stuck not really liking what I have done so far. Can you help.
