Double Trouble

My sister is a long arm quilter, she quilted three of the four quilts that I put in the show. She had six quilts and our friend Annette put two in. Judy quilted one of hers too.

Every year in October, we go on a quilt retreat, Some times we take a class other times we do our own thing.  These quilts are my sister's  we took a class from a woman named Lark called "Double Trouble."
We got two quilt from this pattern. I was not crazy about the class but we got some very pretty quilts from this class. Mine are not quilted yet. 

Here is another version of the same quilt pattern. These were made by Terry, for her granddaughters.

This is Annette's quilt, it was is a block of the month using Marti Mitchel's templates three of us started  it only Annette finished. It's really pretty, the photo doesn't do it justice.

More Quilts

Her are some quilts from the show. This batch is  from a challenge called "Polka Dots and Moon Beams," based on a Frank Sinatra song.

 This one was made by my sister Judy, this little pug belonged to her youngest daughter.

 This was made by our friend Annette.

This is my interpretation.

This was the winner of the Challenge (I think), made by Laura.

 More wonky houses
pretty floral cottages

lovely machined appliqued flowers.
I'm not sure who made these last three but aren't they all wonderfully unique and imaginative?

For Those Twilight Fans

Val, of owner a LQS, Quilt and Treasures  made this quilt  to encourage younger sewers.
What do you think? 

When we were setting up I saw this quilt from across the room. It really caught my eye and I just had to stop what I was doing and walk over to check it out.
Val got the teacher shirts from Hot Topic and has a Bella and Edward quilt planned. 
What do you think? 
Would this attract young people to sew?

Quilt Show Pictures

I've finally recovered from the quilt show. It was a great weekend,  but boy what a lot of work!
Lots of beautiful quilts and I have pictures to share.

A view from the top before the show opened.

This was the Viewer's choice award. The picture doesn't do it justice.
It was pieced by Herb, one of our male members. He has a beautiful eye for color and makes some outstanding quilts.


Another one of Herb's  
I will post more pictures later, it is late and I need to get  to bed.
