The quilt show was last week, so it's high time I posted a few of the pics I took on Thursday. I don't have these in any particular order, and I will include as much information as I can for each.
This quilt has a history lesson attached to it. She was a child whose family immigrated to Israel from Europe after WWII. She says "Recently, I found letters that were written to my sister by my parents in Yiddish...Every week my parents wrote her a letter. Half was written by my father, and half by my mother." The name of the quilt is Servetke 2 (Serviette in Yiddish); the doilie design in this quilt are representative of the knitted serviettes she says were used everywhere in their home.
This quilt is called Intensity, and is based on a pattern called Bubble Gum from Quilt Sampler 2002, Churn Dash variation. I think the bright yellow background fabric makes this quilt special.
Quilt Sue, who cohosted the Lone Star Quilt Along, last year. This quilt was hand pieced and hand quilted, and made from a picture the maker had of a quilt in a New York art museum. Wow.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
