As promised, here are a few more of the great quilts that I had the pleasure to see at the AQS 2008 Quilt Show.
This beauty won the blue ribbon in the Bed Applique category. The quilt maker happened to be standing by and I heard her say that she did this with the quilt as you go method. She completely quilted each block separately before adding them to each other. I haven't tried this method yet, so I can't say how easy or difficult it is to do. This sure is a beautiful quilt!
This beauty won a blue ribbon in the Pieced Quilts category. Wow is all I can say!
I think this quilt deserves a close up photo so that you can see the detail a little clearer. Think of the time that was put into the creation of this beauty!
This quilt did not win an award, but I thought it was a fantastic quilt.
I love the nine patch blocks she used for the sashing. It has a fantastic border too! Are you tired of seeing photos of great quilts? I hope not because I have a few more to share at another time!
P.S. Marlene you left me a comment on my last post asking that I email you as you had some questions. I am sorry but I can't, you have the no reply marked in your preferences so I have no way of contacting you. You can email me direct if you would like. I like to sent a comment or reply back to everyone who is kind enough to leave me a comment. If the no reply is in place that is impossible for me to do so. I also have trouble at times sending email to people with AOL accounts. I have no clue why...could they still be mad at me for leaving them? I doubt that!
All the Way to Wytheville!
