I must admit my photography skills are not the best. Regardless, I hope you are able to enjoy a few photos of the winners from the Miami Valley Quilt Guild Show from last weekend. These are not all of the winners, just the ones I was able to get through the crowds to see. Nothing can replace seeing these works of art in person, however. Just remarkable.
This first one was part of a Joann's challenge. Beautiful to look at, but the quilt maker said the fabric was not fun to work with. ;)
This next winner is a gorgeous whole cloth quilt with an angel motif.
This quilt won for best pieced quilt.
This was made by Maria Elkins, a national award winner. This was a personal challenge to herself, to make the entire wall hanging with NO PINS! Just a fabric glue stick! Amazing!
See what I mean by the crowds of people? :) This won Best In Show, and for very good reason. The winner is to the right in the blue shirt. (Didn't catch her name.)
Here is a full photo, in all its glory. It is raw-edge appliqued, and she used her knowledge of trigonometry (TRIGONOMETRY!) to be sure her angles and shapes came out correctly. I am such a slacker.
The Quilt-Fest continues at The Little Shop of Stitches. We are already set up for our next show May 10-12 in South Lebanon. Check our Facebook page for more pictures. Then, we jet-set to Kansas City for Quilt Market! Be sure to watch the website for our HUGE Blow-Out Sale later this month! Happy Stitching!
