A few weeks ago, on a beautiful Saturday in September, my husband indulged me and went with me to the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza (I know- he must really love me!!) Today I will show you photos from some of my favorite quilts. You can see all of the ribbon winning quilts here.

We pulled into the parking lot of the convention center, and it didn’t take long to figure out that we were in the right place:

And I hadn’t seen this before- I guess the show organizers are trying to get more “young” people into the shows and find out what they’re interested in (young meaning 35 and under. I remember when I thought 35 was old!!! But that’s been awhile, lol.)

When I go to a quilt show, I always take a photo of the information sheet- that way I never have to wonder about a quilt when I am reviewing the photos later! So today, I will be including those photos so you can find out all about the quilt photos I am sharing with you today.

Bouquet1

This quilt took 3rd place in the Traditional Category. I love the addition of hand-dyed wools to the traditional cottons.

This quilt won the award for Best Hand Workmanship. I would never have the patience to hand applique a quilt of this size with so much detail. Bravo!!

Not surprisingly, this quilt won a ribbon for Best Use of Color. The quiltmaker used real leaves as templates for her applique.

The squares in this quilt are 1″, and no computers or paint were used for this quilt. I think it’s amazing!! It won 2nd place in the Innovative Category.

This final quilt took Best in Show. I wish you could see it in person- so much detail!

LittleBitOfBaltimore2

See those little letters in the circles? They were cut from the border fabric- they are about 1/4″ big. Stunning quilting, too. Also note the little brass brads on each blue leaf, and the tiny red gemstones in the black and white checkerboard.

LittleBitOfBaltimore3

Black button embellishment along checked border. Letters are metal cut outs, with black metal brads in the corner of each letter square. More little blue and red gemstones in various places (look carefully!)
