SMQ Guild Show Bright Bed Quilts

There were over 2200 visitors to this three day show of over 140 quilts.
In previous posts I've showcased some of the pictorial wall quilts. While I have great appreciation for traditional-based bed quilts, my preference is for the bright contemporary ones. Here are a few that appealed to me.
"Fractured Moonlight" by Alexandra Schweitzer of Crystal Lake, Illinois awarded 3rd Place in Bed Quilt-Pieced & Quilted category.
"Twist And Shout" by the Out of Towners from Knoxville, Tennessee awarded 2nd Place in the Group Quilt category. The group is four members of our guild.
"Autumn Pleasures" by Mozelle Morgan of Loudon, Tennessee received the Scrap Quilt award. It's pieced and quilted by machine."Hot Cotton" by Dixie Haywood of Pendleton, South Carolina awarded 3rd Place in Bed Quilt-Appliqued & Quilted category.
"Swedish Storm" by Dixie Haywood of Pendleton, South Carolina awarded 1st Place in the Bed Quilt - Pieced & Quilted category.
"Seth's Dreaming Quilt" by Melissa Carter of Knoxville, Tennessee is machine appliqued and hand quilted using her favorite collection of Australian fabrics.

We must have similar taste in colors because Iwould have to give all of these quilts first prize, based mainly on the colors . Amazing!
