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.
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.
Mary adapted this from a Fons and Porter 2014 pattern, “Garden Window.”She substituted yo-yos for flat circles.
I love the bug print for the green leaves!
Then there are the Dear Jane and the Farmers’ Wife quilts.
Christine said she wasn’t a quilter before she started this; what a way to begin!
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.
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.
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.
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.
