Shipshewana Quilt Festival, Part Six...


I hope you aren't tired of the quilt show yet...there are more quilts!






For some reason, I did not get a picture of the label for this next quilt (if you know whose it is, plese let me know)...





 Very nice hand work...




















































































This was my other quilt entry for the show.  I started with Corliss Searcey's Civil War Bride Quilt pattern and used half of her blocks, re-drafted the other half and changed the borders.  I wanted the quilt to represent my daughter and our family (including Weasley the cat and a family self-portrait!).



We all had to come up with our own "groom" block, as the original top at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC had no groom.


































I loved this little froggie...







Whew!  That was a workout!  Happy 4th of July!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  11. Thank you so much. Not only are the quilts a joy to see, following your blog and seeing these midwest shows help me feel that I'm still connected, having moved from Lansing to the West Coast 6 years ago.
