Last weekend, I attended the quilt show in Rockport put on by the Piecemakers by the Bay quilt guild. Their quilt " A Celebration of Daisies",  fundraiser was beautifully appliqued and quilted by members.

 My Passion, by Annette Fowler embellished with crystals, a wall hanging, is so very colorful.

Mexican Star,Again, by Julia Mason, a wall hanging showed innovative background quilting.


Rainbow Pizazz, by Judy McKinley,

Tiny quilt, big attitude!

Fallen Memories by Mimi Braniff uses narrow bright swirly fabric as sashing.   It looks like cording at first...

 Here's detail of

quilting. Heavy & light threads combined.

Some whimsical mice sew up a storm in

Sewing Room Social by Melody Mauch       

Christmas on the Round, by Gloria Trollinger quilted by Nancy Clement shows the most intricate piecing...look at the sharp spikes emminating from the star. The piece is appropriately quilted radiating out from the center.  


     Moonglow, a stunning use of color , pieced by Jan Svatiek and quilted by Bruce Goodlock. It was mesmerizing, and it drew me to it. Odd, since I usually am repelled by blues ...but it must be the combination.

           "Best of Show    award winner,(right)

"Stars Over Texas",made by Sue Williams, and quilted by Debbie Brown.

it has balance, color, fine workmanship....but not my personal favorite...     

That's an honor that went to this one...not even an entry. It's the demo quilt for Ann's New York Beauty class ... wish I'd known...I'd have booked it. Oh well, maybe next year!

I wish I could have posted ALL the pictures I took, but space/time is limited.

Cindy, my dh spends a fair amount on his hobby, model railroading, so he doen't mind if l DO want to spend $. But last yr. l bought the Bailey home quilting machine, and this yr. l bought the Go Baby cutter & 2 dies while here in Tx., so l  don't feel depraved in any way:)

I do wish there were more shows at this time of year,sounds like you came out like a bandit only spending 20 bucks, I have a real sickness when I get around fabric and gadgets for quilting, I just tell my husband it's all the brain injury doing it LOL.
