More Quilts from HMQS

Continuing on with the show quilts.....

"The 100 Year Storm" by Jenny Chiovaro. Jenny designed the applique using Angela Madden's "Magic Celtic" technique and followed the "one-block-wonder" ideas of Rosenthal & Pelzman for the rest.

Close-ups of the applique on the left and some of the interesting piecing below....

"Northwest Passage" pieced and appliqued by Diane Johnston and quilted by Cora Allender is made from the "Dutch Treat" pattern designed by Judy Garden.

The quilt is made up of 196 reverse applique blocks, each of which took 3 to 4 hours to make.

"Floral Escapade" is pieced, appliqued and quilted by Lynn McCartney. Lynn designed the applique designs for this quilt as well as the quilting designs.

It is hand appliqued and the quilting, including the trapunto, was done on a longarm machine.

"Cathedral Ceiling" is pieced, appliqued and quilted by Mildred Sorrells. Center pattern is from a Dove book -- Victorian Patterns & Designs. Mildred added the corners and outside border.

Buttonhole stitch machine applique and other decorative machine stitches were done using King Tut thread; YLI silk thread was used for quilting.

"Labor of Love" by JoAnn Criddle and JoLynn Dickamore. JoAnn bought the cross stitch quilt kit for $5 at a Deseret Industries store and worked on the blocks for many years. JoLynn pieced the blocks together and did the quilting.

Close-ups of the hand cross stitching and the gorgeous feather quilting lavished on the border.

"Pirate's Treasure Maze" by Cathy Wiggins uses fabric painting, hand embroidery and longarm quilting techniques.

This quilt started as tea-dyed muslin and was extensively hand embroidered after the quilting was complete. The correct path through the maze is shown on the quilt label!

"Web of Life" by Ann Horton incoporates digitized embroidery, applique and quilting motifs.

This quilt almost makes me want to go to the computer and figure out my software!

I'm still sorting through all of the pictures taken at this show, so there will definitely be more posts as I work through them.....
