I'm busy packing for a retreat, but wanted to share photos of a few of the awesome quilts from last weekend's Chaska quilt show before I left.
I met up with my cousin Barb for a fun day of browsing quilts and shopping opportunities:
|There was a gallery display of quilts by Audree Sells, a founding member of the guilt.|
This little beauty is one of her postcard quilts.
|This one is also Audree's--so pretty! |
Most of her quilts have black and white or stripey borders or bindings.
|There was a great bed turning--I loved this Dresden plate setting.|
It was made from some of the over 400 blocks made years ago.
There were several quilts shown in the bed turning made from the blocks with a hilarious story that went with them.
|This quilt was also made using some of the vintage plate blocks. |
It was hanging in the show as it was made recently.
|You can see the vintage blocks are a variation of a Dresden plate--more like a flower.|
|I love that there are always little vignettes scattered among the quilts.|
|Okay--my favorite part of the show--lots of tiny Lemoyne Star quilts!|
I need to start making some of these soon....
|I think they were 3 or 4 inches finished--so cute!|
|There were several of them and all had different settings.|
|I can't decide which was my favorite--I love them all!|
|I think there may have been an exchange--lots of fabric variety.|
|Another vignette with a sweet bulls eye quilt.|
|This is such a fun quilt--love those eyes!|
More next time!
