Everyone was so happy to get back to a real in-person quilt show. I'll share some of the quilts from our Country Road Qulters show (Ocala, Florida) in this post. Here is Kay Smith with her Best of Show quilt. Kay is a master at piecing as you can see in her Seminole-style quilt. She was also the mastermind behind our new professional hanging system and the layout for all the quilts. Some of those pieces in Kay's quilt are very, very tiny.
Jill Allen is another guild member who is an accomplished and prize-winning applique artist. Her work is all done by hand, right down to the quilting.
The fall colors and contrasts of light and dark in this pieced quilt are so beautiful. It's the work of Judy Nowak.
Group members took part in a quilt-along project for 2020. We received part of the pattern for Piece and Plenty quilt each month. It was fun to see how different members completed the project with different colors, fabrics, and layouts. This is JoEllen Oppliger's entry titled "A Tisket, A Tasket".
The variety of basket blocks in different techniques is such a nice combination. Leanna Burgin made this first-place entry, "Posies for Sale".
And just look at the wonderful machine quilting in Brenda Crisci's whole cloth "Opal Essence" completed on a Dream Big panel.
While it was a lot of work, the two-day show was a breath of fresh air if you love quilts and have been missing seeing them hang in a public display. If you'd like to see a video with all of the entries, one of our members provided a YouTube video of the show. See it here. I hope you enjoyed all of the eye candy!
