Last week I shared some of my favorite mini quilts from the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show, and this week I thought I would post photos of a few larger quilts that caught my eye. All of the quilts in the show were lovely and the workmanship is extraordinary. I wish I could share them all!
A couple of pictorial quilts caught my eye including this one by Mary Kay Price.
Sharon Schlotzhauer made this dynamic sunflower inspired quilt.
The center of the sunflower is even dimensional. She also added some studs, beads and rhinestone glitz- quilt jewelry!
Janet Stone also incorporated studs and rhinestones into this alphabet quilt.
I couldn’t get back far enough to capture a photograph of the entire quilt, but I couldn’t imagine not showing you the top- aren’t those scallops adorable?
Here’s a close up of her amazing appliqué and some of that “quilt jewelry”! It’s no wonder this beauty won first in it’s category!
Some studs were set through the entire quilt. Here is a back view of that lovely quilting.
Janet Stone also had another quilt from her alphabet series in the show.
Isn’t her attention to detail amazing?
There was some amazing appliqué on display at this show. Mary Olson created this masterpiece.
She was very meticulous in the execution of this design.
This striking piece is by Gail Stepanek.
The quilting really makes the appliqué pop!
There was a great deal of phenomenal quilting on display. I really liked the feathers in this quilt by Tamara Gross.
The amazing quilting in this piece by Margaret Solomon shines and catches the light beautifully since it is constructed with silk fabrics.
I was very inspired by the quilts in this show. As wonderful as it is to see quilts online and in magazines, seeing them in person enhances the overall impact of a piece. I am even more excited to head to the AQS show in Paducah next month!
