Sauder Village 2011 Quilt Show - Part 4

More candy!  I see a lot of these dahlia quilts in Amish country, but I really liked the setting and quilting on this one.

There were two judges, and each one was allowed to award a Judges Choice ribbon.  The next two were the big winners.  For some reason, I did not photograph the labels.  The first one is called "Through the Garden Gate" by Elaine Rosenbeck and the second one is nameless by Don Fothergill.

This quilt from a Lori Smith pattern won first place in the Bed Quilts: Appliqued-Hand Quilted category.  It was made by Marlene Hittler.  One thing I loved about this was the 3-D effect of blossoms and berries, especially the block I couldn't reach to get a close up, the top row, second from the those little blue berry balls!  The hand quilting was really nice!

Loved this colorful frog...

This lovely won first place in the Wall Quilts: Applique-Machine Quilted category.

This was People's Choice...had a lot of 3-D flowers, lace, name it.

This was a Pam Bono pattern, pieced to look like an album quilt.

Loved these bunnies!  It won first place in the Bed Quilts: Mixed Technique-Machine Quilted category.

Hey...everyone seemed to love the Baltimore Halloween quilt from the previous post.  That is a pattern from P3 Designs...just in case you want to jump in...

I think this is "Circuit Rider."

The invited quilt teacher for the week was Nancy Prince of Orlando, FL.  She is an amazing thread painter.  She gave a lecture/trunk show at the awards banquet, and I am pleased to know more about how people thread paint.  I have a greater appreciation for this skill!  Here are her quilts that were on exhibit during the show.  These works look like something you would see hanging in an art museum!

Are you tired of the quilt show yet??  There will be more to come...

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

    second, I love Lori Smith's quilts. Although I have never made anything like them, I love to walk through and take it all in when I am in her booth at Houston... She lives in an town about 20 miles from where I grew up in MN.. Maybe it's a MN bond.. we midwest gals gotta stick together... ;-)

  8. Amazing. I could never be a quilt judge. How on earth do you choose?? :)

  9. No, I am not tired. I am enjoyed every quilt. I especially like the spool quilt with the flowers around the border.

  10. Sometimes you wonder why certain quilts are blue ribbon winners. Not so with any of these!

    Favorites: That dahlia, love the border motif. It's been on the bucket list for awhile and that shot is gonna make me move it up. The quilted cross stich trees - beautiful. I have the Pam Bono patterns and am so glad to see one up close, thanks! The bunny and spools quilts, too cute for words and love the coloring on the batik flowers quilt. And Ms. Price's thread work - phenomenal.
