October 21, 2018: More pictures from the Cocheco Guild Show

Greetings!  Today I’m happy to share more pictures of quilts from the annual Cocheco Quilters Guild show.  I’m so glad to be a part of this great organization.   Every year our show is one of the best in the area; the job we quilters – all volunteer! – do in putting on this show is incredible and every year I’m amazed that we are able to do this so well!

In the quilt below, I think Sue’s use of the Japanese taupes was excellent and her machine quilting outstanding!   Sue has machine quilted a few of my quilts and done an outstanding job. This quilt was deserving of its Judge’s Choice award:

The next 2 quilts are excellent interpretations of Judy Neimeyer patterns.  This first one won a Viewer’s Choice award;

I think the next one is an excellent use of these bright fabrics:

This next quilt was another of the Viewer’s Choice award winning quilts.  I absolutely love the hand stitching she did at the intersections of the rings:

English Paper Piecing!!!  (By the way, my EPP demonstration went really well!)  This quilt is the “Lucy Boston” variation – fun to examine closely to see the fussy cutting:

I’m a cat lover!!  Outstanding machine quilting on this one:

Love the design of this next one.  I do someday want to make a “houses” quilt and this layout is interesting:

Great job of exploring the “flying geese” triangle shape in this modern style quilt and I LOVE red and gold colors together:

This next quilt is very subtle in its use of color,  but very effective!!  I love the embroidery embellishment:

We showcase 3 quilters from the guild each year in our “Meet the Quilter” exhibit.  For the past 2 years this part of the show has been my responsibility.  This year one of our quilters was Nancy Starks-Cheney.  Take a look at her beautiful Ruth McDowell style quilt and the “cartoon” that shows how it was drawn!  Nancy did a great job “decorating” her space with her lovely quilts:

I’ll be back soon with more quilts from the show and an update on my own projects.  Only two and a half weeks til I go to the Houston show – can’t wait!!!!

Be kind, be grateful, and cherish each day,  Gladi

    The show goes by so quickly I love to review & study all the pictures later, thanx for showing some I didn’t get pics of. Sue & Linda have become very accomplished longarmers, love their work. I enjoyed meeting Laura Parsons @ Meet the Quilter, she does all her sewing standing up I like I do.
