DQN Quilt Show Part 2

Here are some more lovely pictures from my guild’s Quilt Las Vegas Quilt Show from last weekend. As tomorrow is National Quilting Day, I’ve resolved to aspire to such great workmanship as these shown below. Pictures are shown with the permission of each artist.

We had a category for show theme, which was “Trip Around the World”. Helen’s beautiful quilt above took 2nd place in the category. It depicts a traditional Folklorico dancer of Mexico swirling her skirt to the music, surrounded by Mexican Star blocks. This quilt also took viewer’s choice. All of that color that you can see in the black background was gorgeous machine quilting with colorful variegated threads.

There was also a special recognition given for the quilt with the best humor, given to my friend Jean, for her quilt above, “When Pigs Fly”. Notice the pig in the outhouse. Too cute!

This quilt was also made by Jean and I love how she used lots of beads to create the appearance of sparkling stars and galaxies beyond. Very artistic!

Karen combined lots of machine embroidery with colorful machine applique and intricate machine quilting to create this beautiful piece, which took 3rd place in the use of embroidery as a design element category.

It will take me at least one more post to show you the last set of quilts I found very fascinating. Then I’ll wrap up with a couple of other fun events at the show. Until next time!
