The “Award-Winning Texas Quilts” was an exhibit sponsored by Accuquilt. It was a showcase of works by current members of Texas quilt guilds. Any quilt that won an award was eligible.
There were many more quilts in this exhibit but here are my favorites…..
This has overtones of what I learned in a Ricky Tims lecture. I love the curves and (you guessed it) the quilting!!
This next quilt is an imaginative way to use up orphan blocks……
I am sorry that I don’t have the maker’s name for this one. IF you know the quilt, please provide the information so that I can add it to this post!!
This next quilt was one of my favorites in the entire show…..
Ellen and her 7 friends produced a marvleous quilt top and Ellen did a wonderful job with the quilting…..
This quilt is a simple pattern but it appealed to me…..
Finally, I recently saw a You-Tube video about making a kaleidscope quilt using panels and this is a prime example of that technique…..
This is the panel that was used…..
….and here is the link for the instructional video…..
Tomorrow we will tackle a wealth of Red & White Quilts and an interview with their maker as she talks about WASHING those quilts!!
