Quilt Show

I have uploaded some pics from one of our small town Quilt shows. It is
a small town and I didn't expect to see anything amazing but I was very
impressed. There is only a few pics I didn't not have time to take pics
of all the quits but there were many more there. I'm also unsure about
posting these pics so I will only keep them up for a week or so since
they are not my quilts. But I did ask permission to take the pics and
they said it wasn't a problem.

Joanna, there are some lovely quilts there.

Just curious as to the  number of stained glass quits...was that a
special category or just one that you liked really well?

How fun to see a quilt show without traveling!  As a new quilter, I
haven't seen the stained glass quilts before.  Are the black lines
applique?  I especially like the bird one...very nice and thank you
for posting the link.  Donna

There was no special category. These quilts were not being judge but I
would say most of them would do very well. I just like the stained glass
so that's why most of the pics. Also I didn't take pics of the
traditional block quilts as everyone has seen them before. I'm hoping
sometime I can actually try my hand at stained glass.

Well I had to travel about 45 mins, but I also got to have coffee with a
friend that I have not seen in a few months, so it was a good day. I
forget the word they call the black line stuff, you can buy it by the
meter or the roll in most fabric/quilting stores and you just sew it on top.

One I'm not sure I took a pic of looked very easy. The background fabric
was all one piece of wildlife scene. Then they did the black lines to
add the window effect. Very nice and classy I thought. You should search
on the net there is so much out there. I've seen very intricate ones as
well.

Usually -- but not always -- the black lines are sewn on -- using bias
strips.  I've done one (Winnie the Pooh) -- and used Clover's fusible
bias -- and my double needle.  It (applying the black bias lines) is really
fairly easy.  Well -- relatively easy anyway.

I fell in love with 1001 and was able to find that panel at Somewhere
Sewing.  Of course, I'm not going to do stained glass for a crib quilt but
it is such a beautiful panel.  Thank you, Joanna.  Polly

I love the same 1001 quilt. The others are pretty. This show reminds
us that size doesn't matter. Small guilds can be just as productive as
large guilds. (Thanks Polly for finding the panel used in 1001.)
