Home Machine Quilt Show

I feel like I’ve had so much to write about here!  A week and a half ago, I went down to the HMQS event in Salt Lake, and now I’m finally getting to share some pictures with you.

by Diane Johnston Quilted by Cory Allender

 Upon first impression this quilt looked like machine embroidery.  It’s all reverse appliqué!

by Cynthia England

 I love how some can take a beautiful photograph and make it even better with fabric.

by Debra Combs

 This quilt looks like plain pinwheels, but at closer look they are all mini log cabin blocks.  Such tiny pieces – I hope it was paper pieced!

by Judi Madsen – of Green Fairy Quilts

 Love the color combo in this one, and the quilting is beautiful!

by Amber Robertson

 I loved these flowers!  Couldn’t help myself :)

by Rhonda Montgomery

 this is such a fun quilt, all the details added were so cute and fun!

by Kathi Carter

 This one was so pretty, and looking closer the flowers are all folded fabric.  The texture was amazing!

by Pam Hadfield

 I love how happy this quilt is – when I decide to do “real” appliqué the Aunt Millie books are where I will go.  :)

 Finally an antique quilt I couldn’t resist photographing –

 You can enlarge the picture to read more, but it was made around 1875 – 135 years old!

I think it’s pretty amazing to see some designs last the test of time.  Makes you wonder about the quilts you are making today….hmmm.  Always add a label!

Hope you are inspired to make a quilt ~

    I will never stop being amazed by the talent of quilters all around the world – what spectacular works of art. It is so heartwarming to see 100+ year old quilts that are still around as a legacy of the person who created it. Amazing pictures – thank you!

    Those are beautiful…I especially love all of the folded flowers. One day I will have the time (and patience) to put all of that work into a quilt. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks so much for the pictures, Amy — I've been wanting to attend this show, and I live so far away that it hasn't been possible yet. Great photos — and, yes, great inspiration.

    wow! Thanks for the pics! Those are some beautiful quilts. I hope that with practice I'll be able to tackle projects like this.

    That log cabin pinwheel quilt looked fun!

    I have been forever pondering how I want to do my granddaughter's quilt and you've now given me some creative inspiration with the folded fabric quilt! YAY! How fun would THAT be to try?! :-)
