In parts of the country where winter makes its presence felt, spring and fall are the times to hold quilt shows. Northeast Ohio’s most recent and newest show was held October 17 and 18. The Mutton Hill Quilt Show was actually three shows in one: heirloom quilts, a Quilt National traveling show exhibit, and a judged quilt show.
I showed you my heirloom favorites, so it’s time for my judged show faves. Some won ribbons, some didn’t. I didn’t have a chance to photograph all my favorites. I kept stopping to chat with people I knew or who knew me.
Two quilts by the same person with wonderful embroidery of fruits and vegetables. The asparagus spears are works of art. (Note: patterns for these are available.)
Carolyn describes the process she used to create this quilt on Indigo Stitches, her blog.
There were lots of quilts made from Judy Niemeyer patterns at the show, but this one had the best color scheme. Note the gradation from darker in the upper right corner to lighter in the lower left corner.
Christine hand appliqued and quilted this.
This guy has great hair.
Beautiful detail from this large quilt. It reminded me of the hooked wool rugs in my parents’ old bedroom.
Nice variation of a flag quilt.
I just love the colors in this quilt made for a granddaughter.
I like the little pinwheels and the quilting.
