Stitches in Bloom Quilt Show: Second Batch

When I left off yesterday I didn't realize I still had a few quilts left to show from the challenge by the High Fiber Diet group. As a reminder, this was their  "How do you make your mark" challenge. Each quilt contained the mark at the bottom of this sheet:


There were two quilts remaining from that challenge. I especially like this first one.





The next two quilts were made by the featured artist for this year's show. She was teaching some classes as a part of the show. Last year, when I took the felting classes, I was sitting right next to this quilter. Little did I know she was something of a quilting "celebrity".



Interesting detail work.




Each year Greenbaum's Quilted Forest issues a challenge to use a particular fabric. Greenbaum's is one of my favorite local quilt shops.


Here are just a few of the challenge quilts. As I mentioned yesterday, bright sunshine streaming in through the windows made it impossible to photograph some of the quilts on this side of the building.







This next quilt was one of the quilts that was bathed in bright sunshine at the time I walked through, but I took its picture anyway. This one was made by a member of my guild who is quite talented with elaborate embellishment.




The remaining quilts I have to show you would fall into the "general" entries (my word). No challenges here...just beautiful quilts.




Having just finished this quilt recently, I was quite taken with this quilter's interpretation of Vintage Tin. Mine was made as the designer suggested, all in charcoal gray floss. This quilter really branched out with her use of colored floss and more elaborate embroidery stitches than the original.






Those are all the quilts I have for you today. I'll have a few more to show you tomorrow.

  5. I'm loving the virtual quilt show! We visited Oregon Gardens this past summer for a family wedding so it's fun to see a place I'm familiar with. Family lives in Silverton and Mt. Angel. Isn't it amazing the difference a few changes in thread color can make? Both versions are wonderful - yours and hers.

  8. What wonderful embellishments on Queen Bee! That's my pick from this group. And it was interesting to see Vintage Tin on the color TV instead of the black & white. :)
