This is a closeup where you can see the hand quilting as well. WOW and it didn't even get first place!!
This is Murderskill Crossing by Janet Atkins and was another crowd favorite as well as a prize winner.
This and the following quilt are by Shirley Frew, one of our very talented quilters. This is called A Baltimore Christmas.
This one is called Wind in the Whiskers.
This is called A Halloween Baltimore Album by Linda Traynor. I believe it was one of the prize winners as well. All the winners can be seen on the GVQC Quiltfest website.
This and the two subsequent quilts were done by Irene Bow. This one is called Baltimore Album.
This one is called Baltimore Garden.
This one is done by Toni Foster and is called Love at First Sight. Toni has been recognized nationally for her fabulous quilts and is known for her hand quilting which she has taught all over the Rochester area. Her workmanship and artistry has been well recognized. I don't think she has ever done a quilt that hasn't overwhelmed me -- she adds a special something to even the most traditional of quilts.
This is Tomorrow's Treasures by Lorraine Enge.
This one is called Webster Album - I'm Not From Baltimore by Sandra Buckman. You can tell the relative size of these quilts by looking at the tags on them whicchc are about 4 x 6 inches. I have also tried to size the pictures with a little thought to that as well although the detail in some of them is so incredible, I blow them up as much as I can!!.
This one is called Uncommon Friend by Mary Christopher and combines piecing and appliqueing and I think is totally stunning!!! Not only do I love the design but I love the colors as well. Awesome quilt!!
This one is called Japanese by Pat Soule.
The next four quilts were done by Chris Wickert who has taken the applique tradition of this quilt club to a whole new level, winning Best of Show at the Vermont Quilt Show two years in a row. We had a special exhibit of prize winning quilts at the show and many of Chris's were included in those. The above one is called My Version of a Persian and is all done in silk.
This one is called Sampling the Silk Road. Besides working in silk a lot, Chris hand quilts her quilts -- I don't think she sleeps....
