Schoharie Valley Piecemakers Quilt Show-Day 1


First, I really am horrible with my camera - and all the florescent lights and big windows - so hard to take pictures.  Our highlight is The Man Cave as we have three very talented men in our quild  They had so many pieces they would not fit in the designated room, so we had an overspill.


Ron, Ron, and Matthew have quite a range of projects.  Both Rons are long armers - Ron (1) probably long armed half the quilts in the show - Ron (2) quilts in another whole style.


You probably recognized this Missourie Star Quilt Co. pattern - there are a few in the show.


Unfortunately the quilts on this 'wall' were against all those large windows and difficult to get good photos.


As was this gorgeous piece that I just LOVED.  Ron (2) with some amazing work - he should be entering larger shows.


I tried to get a close up to show the detail - this piece is only 10" square.


This is just amazing - playing with Trapunto , fibers, specialty stitching, and crystals. 


Ron (1) met a challenge with my Mom - she did this too but a little different setting.


Yeah, these guys made some BIG quits - that make a statement.


I had done a quild meeting on setting blocks with different sashings - this one is taken to a new level - these are 2" squares (finishing 1.5") - use those scraps!


A spin on an Amish Star and the woven quilt - both big hits today.  We have a lot of black and white quilts in the show, too.  Oh, and purple pops up every where.

They had more, but let's not let them steal the show (although I think they are doing just that).  Tomorrow I work The Best House which you can read about HERE.  I have never been to this exhibit and look forward to it.  The antique quilts are being shown here - I'm white gloving.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
