Last Saturday 4 of my Chicken friends joined me at the Oakland County Quilt Guild's bi-annual show in Lake Orion. Amazing quilts awaited us as well as some great vendors. Can't go wrong with that combination.
Here are a few of the quilts I admired most. Make sure you click on the photos so you can see the detail.
First up is a quilt made by Judy Kleeves of Holly, MI ~~
And a close up of the corner block ~~
Next up is one that Diane liked, made by Lucy Kohler of Commerce Twp, using Gwen Marston's techniques ~~
And a close up of the wonky stars ~~
Here's one that Sue liked that was a painted whole cloth quilt made by Carol Tamasiunas of White Lake ~~
I found myself mesmerized by this beauty made by Darlene Garstecki of Hot Springs Village, AR ~~
Her techniques were amazing -- the threadwork was stellar. The tree was made from chenille fabric. I could have stared at this piece all day.
Here's another applique quilt (I seemed to be drawn to them), made by Jan Jump of Maryville, TN ~~
It was her first attempt at machine applique -- nice job, eh?
And finally for tonight, one last applique quilt, this one made by Emmy Helland of Rochester Hills ~~
I loved her work!
Now, I have so many more quilt show photos to share but that will have to wait until tomorrow. I need to get to bed -- too darned tired lately. Hope you had a great day -- it was a beautiful one around here.
