Harvest of Quilts

Saturday, I went to the Evening Star Quilters' Harvest of Quilts Show here on Long Island with my mom. I am sharing with you some of the beautiful quilts their guild members entered.
 
I love the gradations in color on this star.
The quilt below won first prize overall.
 
 
 
Beautiful applique below.
 
 
I am always a sucker for a log cabin quilt. The first quilt I made was a queen-size barn-raising log cabin that I hand quilted. What was I thinking?
 
 
 
I love redwork.
 
Sorry for the wonky photo but there was not enough back-up room to photograph this one head-on. I love the black, white and pink combo.
 
 
 
The umbrellas in the quilt below remind me of an antique quilt my mom has. It is an entire quilt of umbrellas.
 
 
This whole quilt is called "Amazing Silk" and won first prize for whole cloth quilts.
 
 
 
The two quilts above were pieced and quilted by Galyna Sokolova-Miller. You can find her web-site here. She is the quilter who will be quilting my Flying Geese quilt.
 
 
I just dropped it off to be quilted. I can't wait until I get this back and on my bed. Of course I will have to bind it first, but I never seem to mind doing that. Any suggestions for a name for this quilt?
 
Thank you for stopping by?

  1. Those are all beautiful quilts, and yours is too. I think of quilt shows as being like an art museum. I am also partial to the log cabin. It never gets old.

    1. Thank you Deborah. I am always fascinated by the different quilt combinations. Yes, it is much like an art museum.
