So different from most of the quilt shows I've attended, here nearly all the quilts on display are hand quilted! Some of the older ones were both tied and hand quilted. One of the more contemporary quilts I noticed was machine quilted in the center, however the plain outer borders were expertly hand quilted, the maker evidently choosing to feature her hand stitching where it would have the most impact.
We came away with approximately 200 photos, and this post and probably the next will feature a few of our favorites. I attempted to highlight some of the wonderful quilting motifs, and the especially fine and even stitching found on many of the examples. So, without further ado:
Next post will feature some of the many embroidered quilts in the show, as well as more applique and pieced items. It is obvious from viewing these quilts that they have been treasured by their makers and those who have inherited them, they are all in excellent condition. If you love traditional quilts and hand quilting, this is a not-to-be-missed event!
