Quilt Show Favorites, Part 2

Viewer's Choice went to Jane Viglionese's Double Dutch Star. Hand quilted! Jane makes just one quilt a year and they are perfection! Her fabrics are just gorgeous.

I think Blooming 9-Patch might be my all-time favorite pattern. I need to try it with modern prints. (Tradition with a Twist by Blanche Young and Darlene Young-Stone) This quilt by Barbara Smith was made with all batiks (I think). It was quilted by Pat Harrison.
Woodland Clover by Rita Gladych caught my eye. I think this would be fun in modern prints, too. From More Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth. Quilted by Sharon Mayers.

I love these diagonal lines of cream solid that look like strings of pearls. Prue Holton loosely based this quilt on a photo in a magazine ad.

There were a couple of these table toppers in the show, because one of our members, Petie Sminkey, had taught a class at a LQS. This Halloween topper by Nancy Aneyci is really fun. I might need to ask Petie for a lesson.

One last show post tomorrow!
