Patricia's August 2008 Quilt Show

Well, Kitty at Patricia's certainly had a successful day at her twice yearly quilt show. Usually August is the slower and less populated show but certainly not so this year! There were many lovely quilts in the show. The above slideshow is the pictures I took. It was very difficult to photograph the larger quilts because of the space but I got pictures of many of the smaller quilts.

This is fellow Club members Sally Hirschberg and Janet Root sitting in front of the 2008 Raffle quilt. Double Click on this or any of the quilts to see them closer.

This was an exquisite quilt done by our own Chris Wickert. It is done in silk dupioni -- hand appliqued and hand quilted. It is about 45 x 45 inches.

This was a lovely quilt done by Jan Ciravola, also in the club.

This is done in scraps! Judy Harbison did this and is going to contribute it to our Comfort Quilts project. Wow!

I just had to take a picture of this as it was done as basically a four piece stack and whack. Makes me want to start making them again. The fabric choice was exquisite and I wanted it!! It was done by Catherine Blackwell who I don't know.

This quilt was done by Hilary Gutman and was to dress up her pantry. She was inspired by Ruth McDowell's poppies.

This was a lovely wool applique done by Joan Ward.

You need to double click on this one to really see the quilting. It was a fun scrap quilt but Teddy Ahern did fabulous custom quilting on it!

This was a quilt done by Mary Rankin which was a family tree!

This was done by Pat Daniels and I really liked the juxtaposition of the light flower against the scrappy dark background.
