Shipshewana Quilt Festival, Part Three...


I LOVED this quilt...everything about it!  I took lots of pictures of it yesterday when I returned to Indiana to pick up my quilts after the show.











Can you believe that this is ribbon-less?  Yes, there were 200 terrific quilts there, but...wow...













Here is another one that took my breath away.  It won second prize in the large, pieced category.  I showed you a picture in the last post, but I was able to get some close-ups yesterday (last day of the show...it was almost empty of people...I wish I had gotten there sooner to have time to take and re-take more pictures...).






When I grow up, I want to learn to put a color palette together like this...













Did you notice that the same people that made and machine quilted this quilt, also made and machine quilted the first one?  Oh boy...what a team!



Check out all the sweet details on this next quilt.  It did win a ribbon - second place in the large, mixed technique category.  It was made and quilted, on a domestic machine, by the same person...the detail is breathtaking.

















I love the detail and shading on the spoon...and the little bits of embroidery...



After 3 posts of show pictures, I hope you are tired of them...there are many more to come.  But now I must get out in my jungle and pull some weeds!

In stitches,
