Guild Quilt Show #3–Traditional

The moment some of you have been waiting for, traditional quilts.There are enough that I am splitting them into two posts. Today’s are the clearly traditional.

For starters, a vintage quilt–the show has a section where members can exhibit old quilts that they own but did not make.

NWT rose of sharon

circa 1900 by Elizabeth Hoppin (1849-1932), “Rose of Sharon”

This quilt won first place in the Oregon State Fair in 1933–exhibited as an antique quilt even then.

Another applique quilt–this one contemporary.

NWT Nature's Flower Garden

Mary Glassmeyer’s “Nature’s Flower Garden”

Mary adapted this from a Fons and Porter 2014 pattern, “Garden Window.”She substituted yo-yos for flat circles.

Detail: yo-yos

I love the bug print for the green leaves!

Then there are the Dear Jane and the Farmers’ Wife quilts.

NWT oh dear

Christine Jiun Li’s “Oh Dear!”; quilted by Nancy Stovall of Just Quilting

Christine said she wasn’t a quilter before she started this; what a way to begin!

portland summer

Christine Jiun Li’s “Portland Summer” from the Farmer’s Wife book; quilted by Nancy Stovall

I remembered this and a couple other quilting shots.

Did you notice that both of these detailed, small-block quilts were pieced by the same person?  That is an amazing amount of tiny piecing.!

And a crazy quilt.

Carol Davies’ “Noah’s Ark”

And some detail of the embroidery and animal prints.

The Sharon Guthrie award is an award to a person showing a quilt for the first time. Sharon is a guild member who died; her family memorializes her in this award and comes to the show to select the winning quilt.

And we still have some hand quilting.

NWT lone star

Evelyn M. Eason’s Lone Star quilt

I have only the traditional pattern name; my photo of the label cut Evelyn’s title off. The award ribbon is for hand quilting. So here is a detail.

And last but not least, some miniatures.

NWT mini

I left the extraneous detail in so you could have a sense of how small these are. I can’t tell you who made them because I forgot to photograph the labels. But I do have a detail shot of the ribbon quilt.

As I recall the 4-patch pieces were either 1/8 or 1/4 inch.

In a couple days I’ll post some more, some that are borderline modern/traditional.

  1. Christine Jiun Li is a very talented lady, her choice of colour and the meticulous accuracy of those tiny blocks are wonderful. I also love Mary Glassmeyer’s ‘Nature’s Flower Garden’; it’s wonderfully pretty and anyone who can make all those yoyos has my sincere respect!

    Wonderful quilts, all of them. I like the secondary design the yo-yos give the applique quilt toward the top. What wonderful piecing and quilting. You did a great job with the photos. I’m never making a miniature as small as any of those, but definitely not the one in the close up!

  3. Those are some impressive quilts! I love the Dear Jane quilts. I am usually not much of a sampler person, but then perhaps it is the sheer volume of tiny blocks that makes them something entirely different from a normal sampler. I certainly can’t imagine starting quilting with a project like that though!

  4. Beautiful quilts. How many people are in this guild?
