I'm sure most of you recognize this quilt, "Take It Out Back". It received an Honorable Mention ... as did "Imagine Monet".
These two by Tone Haugen-Cogburn of Maryville, Tennessee were among my favorites in this show.
Tone based this quilt on a photo taken by one of her daughters on their last trip visit to Norway. It represents her memory of home and the sea.
Melissa made this piece in the "Ortwork" workshop I taught last fall. It was her first foray into this technique and served as a study for her larger show piece.
This dazzling quilt is the third quilt made by Celeste Lowndes of Apex, North Carolina. She and I have a special relationship through her mother-in-law, Gayle Lowndes, who was one of my best friends before she died of cancer a year ago. I'm pleased to see a ribbon attached to her quilt.
Scott Murkin 's strata quilts she saw in "American Quilter". Look at the quality of her freemotion quilting on this piece. She definitely started out on a high level of design and skill.
Sheila Rauen, one of our guild members, brought her machine to demonstrate the special techniques she's come up with for making her signature style quilts.
This is one of her entries in the show. It received the special award, "Just For Fun", as well as an Honorable Mention ribbon.
More photos that I took today will be posted and I'll take more when I go back to the show on Sunday.
