More Quilt Show Quilts

Quilt above was simply stunning!
Mary Bell's Civil War Album Sampler by Karen Woten of Ottumuwa, IA.
Won 1st Place for hand workmanship!!

These are more my favorites kind of quilts. Have the 'old' feel to them! Simple but so very charming and  some even elegant looking such as the star one done is long strips.

 All five of these plus more were made by a group called Churn Dashers of Tidewater, Virginia.
A Civil War quilt study group.
The display was called..Honoring 19th Century Quilters.
Just so many wonderful quilts on display with repro fabrics.
This was a very charming wool piece. Was part of another themed grouping called Season's of the Heart. Made by Emma Crawford of Gloucester, Virginia of the River Country Quilters.
Those stitched snow flaked were just wonderful! Took a close up but did not come out very well.

So much inspiration to be found at a quilt show that has such a diverse selection of designs. Something for everyone!
