Quilt Show At The Villages Part 2

There was too much to show you in just one post so I am continuing on this post with more quilts from the show.

Technically this a very simple quilt. Design wise it is complex and very well done.
Value, color, contrast are all accomplished in this one.

This is a traditional scrappy log cabin quilt and it definitely is a show stopper.
The red cornerstones really pop and create a path and movement for your eyes to follow.
The border is perfectly integrated with the rest of the quilt.

This Trip Around The World Quilt was entered in the novice category which was for people who had been quilting less than 5 years. The creator of this quilt had a great understanding of color and value. She used these things to create a very effective work of art.

The artist who made this quilt designed it herself. It is a stunning example and arrangement of Hibiscus.

In this close up of the quilt you can see that the stamen is 3 dimensional.

It really took a lot of self control to stay home and not go back to the show again today to see what I missed!

We have quilted 5 or 6 of those Snake River log cabin quilts. The pattern is in "Judy Martin's Log Cabin Quilt Book". It is my favorite book of hers, and I am not even a big log cabin fan.

Thanks for sharing more of the show!
