This past Saturday was the 3rd annual Harvest Quilt and Craft show, and if you couldn't attend you missed some great quilts. It isn't the same as being there, but here is a glimpse of the show.
We had our own little homage to Bonnie K. Hunter with Laurie's Jamestown Landing in green and Pat's in blue with Jennifer's Orca Bay in the middle.
The contemporary section included Marty's French Braid with great shading
Faye's "Jambo Najile" shows how simple piecing can let the beauty of the fabrics do the work.
Brenda's "Out of Egypt" wasn't quilt finished for the show, but is still impressive as a work in progress.
Dawn's Carpenters Star was her very first quilt. The pillow was made with the leftover fabric.
Tara made this cute 9-patch quilt for her Mother-in-Law and calls it Neapolitan because it reminds her of the 3-colored ice cream. Sorry about the glare from the window.
Marty's Stack 'n Whack. It's amazing how different the blocks look, but they are all from the same fabric!
One of our older quilts, this cross-stitched whole cloth was made around 1976 to celebrate the bicentennial.
It is hand cross-stitched and hand quilted
This is Dwina's "Chains of Love" quilt. It won a 3rd place ribbon at the Maine State quilt show this year.
Sheri's Log Cabin quilt really shows the sunshine & shadow pattern- I got lucky with the sunlight from the window.
This is a Dresden Plate quilt that has come to Glenn through his family. Lucky Glenn!
Ruth's quilt is "All about Maine"
Joyce thinks less is more... This little gem is only 11 X 13"
This wonderful folk art piece was one of the show highlights. It was made in 1859 by the owner's great-great Aunt. The framed certificate on the easel is the second place award from the Dauphin County (Pennsylvania) Agricultural Exhibition
I love the swag border... And the compasses... and the quilting... there's just nothing not to love about this quilt.
So there you have it, a short tour of the 2012 Harvest Quilt Show. If you got tho see them in person, thanks for coming and if you didn't, we hope to see you next year.
