More Quilt Show Quilts

I never finished showing you my favorite quilts from the Quilters Unlimited 2012 Quilt Show. I'm on the 2013 show committee and work is full swing. I'm heading up the boutique committee. If you've done this before, I'd welcome input on the kinds of items that sold well at your show boutique. We only sell homemade items by guild members.

Here are the quilts in no particular order. I tried not to repeat any of those I shared last June. Hope you enjoy the show-

Gayle is one of the most talented hand quilters I know. One of these days I'm going to ask her to show me how to spoon quilt.

Unfortunately, this beauty was on the dark side of the hall and up high. I wasn't using flash because it distorts the colors.

 Love the variety of reds.

 Looks like a great scrap buster!

 Again, love the variety.

These strips are very narrow. The quilt is only about 20 inches square-

I finished Ella's quilt and sent it off to California. I'll share it and hopefully two other finishes by the end of the month. The other two are show quilts and they need to be done by the 26th to be photographed and registered for the show. Lots o' quilting happen' here!


  1. I really enjoyed the show, Maureen. I get so motivated seeing all of these wonderful creations. Some amazing quilts here!

  2. So many beautiful quilts! Makes me think of starting some new projects!! Kudos to you for volunteering - so much work goes into a show. Silent auction bidding on quity baskets have been popular - maybe a seperate committee? Beautifully gift wrapped mystery boxes and sets like hand care (cream and skin care).
    Sounds like a fun time!!

  3. I enjoyed seeing all these magnificent quilts! It's impossible to pick one favorite in the bunch. Thanks, too, for the close up pictures of the quilting on some of them!

  4. Wow, thank you for this great show. Fantastic quilts.

  21. what a great post Maureen~! i enjoyed seeing the quilts as well as the info with them. there are some truly talented quilters in your area~!!!~

    the civil war diamond log cabin took my breath away and i thought it was something along the lines of king sized when viewing the photos . . . to read that it was only about 20" square was quite a surprise~!

    the album quilt was fabulous and i so hope to make one someday. maybe doing it as a block of the month is the way to go.

    i agree with you about the red and white stacked houses quilt; the varied reds used really gives it lots of interest.

    and the hawaiian quilts were awesome . . .

    thank you for sharing this gorgeous selection of quilts. i'm like Barb and will definately have to go back for a second look at some of them.
