Here are the last few photos from Brownstone Quilt Show 2011.
As part of our Patriotic display, Berniece shared this quilt "My 9/11 Flag Quilt". It is really spectacular! I have encouraged her to get in touch with the 9/11 museum, as I feel it should be shared with the world. It even includes a memento from the restaurant at the top. The blue represents the brave police and firemen and it's torn and ravaged, as our the many lives following the 9/11 tragedy.
This elegant and beautiful quilt, "Cranes in Flight" was made by Elizabeth O'S. It is a gift and is hand quilted, and includes sashiko.
I love the softness of this quilt, made by Bea.
Here are the 2 mini quilts I won in the auction.
I was thrilled to win this one, as my boys are sailors. I think I will matt and frame this, the stitchery is lovely!
Here are some of my purchases. Already made - score!
One of my favorite vendors is Joe, of Lancaster Traditions. I bought this piece of 19 century double pink - my Favorite!!
And also two yards of this glazed cotton. I don't know what I'll do it, but I just had to have it.
I was so excited to buy this from Antique vendor, Dana, of Material Pleasures. My home town, Chicago, Worlds Fair Hankie, 1893. I'll frame it with this gold fabric.
And how sweet is this calendar print from 1899? I guess she is training the dogs as they are surrounded by whips.
Who could resist these faces? Not me. I will frame this also.
Lastly, I tried to take a couple of photos of my Passage to India quilt to show the crystals. It is just not possible, but there are over 600 on the quilt. The boys suspended raking to give me a hand - thanks guys!
The pieced backing.
I used a practice piece for the label. Waste not, want not.
Thanks for sharing the show with me!
I've started a few new project and I'll be back to share them next time. In the meantime, I hope you are having fun!
