Show Favs of Mid Atlantic Quilt Show 2010

This was my fav! Called Prairie Braid.
Loved the colors , the fabrics and design.

Here is a close up.

This was Diana's fav called Sew is Life.
The hand turn applique detail on this one was amazing.

Well if you have to have an arty quilt it may as well have a pretty rooster in it!
Ya know I love me some roosters!!
This one is called Shannon's Bantom.
Looks like an old photo in a 60's album.
Sorry did not get any makers names!
At least we got titles this time!

Next was a pretty red work quilt of ladies.
This was my fav block...yes she is quilting!
This show is becoming pretty much an 'Art Quilt' show so it is hard to find too may I really like.
Not that art quilts are bad just not all my cuppa tea...;-)
Did not do the walk around and look at everything, just few main ribbon winners.
We checked these out when we first arrived.
Then we had our shopping lists to attend to before I 'expired' for the day....;-)


  1. What striking quilts. Thanks for sharing.

  2. That Prairie Braid is beautiful. I didn't see that one out there or the redwork ladies quilt either. I loved the other two and did see those two and snapped pictures

  3. While I find art quilts interesting to look at, I know I am not capable of making one, so I'd rather be inspired by the type of quilts I CAN make....that's why I'm not thrilled with the over-abundance of art quilts at the shows nowadays. So....what did you BUY at the show? Will we hear about that next? Hope you are feeling okay, too.

  4. Those quilts are awesome and what a wonderful thing to see them. I love quilt shows and these days we are all over whelmed at the artistry..

  5. the Prairie Braid!

  6. The quilts are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing them.

  7. Very pretty! Thank you so much for taking us along! :))

    Happy sewing now when you got all that inspiration!

  10. I;m glad the weather held up and you were able to go. Looks like there were some very talented quilters featured at this show. As for the Art Quilts some I like some I don't.

  11. Lovely quilts! Thanks for showing them.

  12. The "Sew is Life" quilt is amazing!!
