Brownstone Quilt Show 2013 - Part 2

Happy Friday!

I won this wonderful little quilt at the mini auction.  It is hand quilted and the perfect size for a couple of candle sticks.

Here are some views of our special Red & White exhibit -

My favorite is my good friend, Norma's.   Isn't it jolly!!

We had a  4-Patch Posie, One Block Wonder and Stack and Whack exhibit.  All of these quilts start with layering and cutting blocks out of 1 fabric, and reassembling into a totally different looking fabric.

Norma is the queen of the 4-patch posie.  Here are 2 of hers.

Isn't Pauline's OBW stunning?

 This is Pauline's too call "Look at me Now".  It was made from a panel print with a beautiful bird.

The bird is at the top of the panel and I couldn't get it - sorry.

The next two are made by Kathi Kruk with a scull and rose fabric in 2 color ways.  I absolutely love these!

Susan H made a 4 patch posie from the Ghastlie fabric that I used with a white background.

Our raffle quilt and the second place runner -

  15. Lots of eye candy in this post :0) The mini quilt is very pretty! I like how a different quilting motif is used in all the borders.

  16. It's amazing when one fabric is cut in a particular way, it can create such awesome and interesting quilts. I have a friend named Norma too, who is super creative. Must be a good name to have.

  17. Love these quilt show posts.

    I came to know Pauline's work when good friend of mine, who lives in Portland, showed me all of her quilts (they correspond). So I feel like Pauline is a familiar "face" and loved seeing her quilts here.

    Congrats on being a winner!
