How long has it been since you last attended a quilt show? For me it has been about 10 years. So I was super excited when my neighbor and quilting buddy Judy suggested we needed a girls day out at the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show.
There was nothing going to stop these two ole gals from getting out and enjoying the day. Not even the torrential down pour of rain. I haven't seen an all day rain like that in a long time. Well I should say I haven't been out in a rain like that in a long time. But we were determined and pressed onward. By the time we made it through the parking lot and in the building we were soaked. The umbrellas were pretty much useless in 50 mile an hour wind gusts. I thought for sure the horrible weather would keep most quilters at home and we would basically have the whole show to ourselves. Wrong! They all thought the same and wasn't going to let a little wind and rain keep them away. It was worth it.
There was so much to see but I'm only sharing a few of my favorites. If you would like to see all the winners you can find them by clicking here
Please forgive me for not being able to give credit to the makers of these quilts. I forgot to take pictures of the piece of paper attached to the quilts.
Each quilt shared with you today is hand quilted with lots of other handwork.
This one is called The Crossing.
Take a look at this trapunto. I've never seen little stuffed balls that look like marbles. Impressive! Now tell me, will these flatten if the quilt is folded? How would they hold up to washing?
Next is Joy in the Journey. 100% handwork. So many tiny pieces.
The last quilt is Let Freedom Ring. My favorite from the show. Again, all handwork. The detail isn't as impressive as the other two quilts but it's patriotic and that's the reason I love it so much.
Until next time...
I hope you find time to stitch up something sweet!

I had information about the quilt show but didn't attend, maybe next year. I'm sure you and your friend had a wonderful time together. There is something special about being able to attend events that have been cancelled for several years. Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
What gorgeous quilts! I'm also drawn to anything patriotic, and that quilt is stunning <3 I'm fortunate to live close enough that I can make a day trip to the international quilt show in Houston. I have to admit, as in intermediate beginner, I get so overwhelmed looking at the quilts that I spend most of my time shopping :-)ReplyDelete
