Prize Winning Quilts

Here are my ribbons from the quilt show. Aren't they beautiful?

The quilt above was pieced by Charlotte and won second place in the Two-Person category. It is a wonderful quilt and quite well pieced. Each curved seam was flat and the bright stars are wonderful.

I quitled a feather border and chalked the spine for the first time. After chalking it, I did freehand feathers on it. In each of the different background fabrics, I did a different freehand fill. I used black thread for all of this. Also stitched in the ditch around the stars and on each side of the small inner border.

I then switched to a King Tut multi-colored thread and did each star as it spoke to me. They are all similar but different, if you know what I mean.

The above quilt by Jan won first price in the Two-Person category. This quilt started out in a workshop earlier this year by Sharyn Craig where we made glorified nine-patch blocks. Jan is so good with color and has a great imagination and is so much fun to quilt for. She added sashing to the quilt and set the blocks on point, creating a flower look.

I then quilted fern feathers in the red and did a continuous curve in the nine patches. In the outside border, I did a larger feather fern border. I used variegated black/white thread for the whole quilt.

Tomorrow is the last day of the show and I will take more photos then and post them. I have photos of my two individual entries and more of the other quilts that I quilted for others.
