Quilt Show! (part two)

The Sandhills Quilters Guild was organized in November 1982 and this is their fifth quilt show, exhibiting almost 100 quilts of various styles and types this year.  Here are a few of the quilts I found intriguing...

"Let the Seeds of Peace Grow in Your Heart," by Judy Peterson, was another quilt that caught my eye at the quilt show...

The quilting was cool...

...and the appliqued olives demanded to be picked!

This is the world's worst photo of "Thanksgiving," a hand appliqued quilt made by Dottie Smith and quilted by Nancy Pease.

However, I thought you should see all the fruit on the quilt.... before the close up.

I can't even begin to imagine how long all that applique took...

"Coloring Outside the Lines," by Valerie A. Kasten, was another quilt that called to me... I loved the wonkiness....

 ...including the quilting... straight line going in all different directions!

Too fun!

Hope you're enjoying the photos... there will be a couple more tomorrow...


  1. Those first two quilts are beautiful. They intimidate me to some degree. : )
    The last one is very fun--clever title and idea. I look forward to more.

  2. What a gorgeous quilts Freda. Lucky you that you could see theme in real but thank you for sharing them with us.
    Have a great day, Roos

  3. These are all fabulous! But I just can't imagine how the Thanksgiving quilt does not have a ribbon (or two) on it! What are the judges looking for!?! I enlarged the pic, and the quilting was wonderful, too! You just can never tell about judges! Thanks for sharing the show with us!

  4. Let the seeds of peace grow in your heart....beautiful. the quilt is amazing! thank you for sharing all these quilts with me this morning! :)

  5. Seeds of Peace has such depth, in so many that one! And the wonky!

  6. I enjoyed the pictures of quilts in both part 1 and part 2 posts. Awesome. Some very talented quilters out there!

  7. The quilts are all gorgeous! I'd never have the patience to make any of them!

  8. Thanksgiving was my favorite. I would love to be able to do that kind of work.

  9. I am enjoying the photos - thank you again! That appliqué quilt is amazing!
