August 19, 2022: More Quiltfest New England photos (Part 2)

Greetings dear readers! Today I’m sharing several more quilts from Quiltfest New England. Enjoy their beauty and hopefully they’ll inspire you!

Janet Stone – a quilt maker who has won numerous major awards for her alphabet quilts – had a wonderful new quilt at the show. Surprisingly, I didn’t see any ribbon on it at the show, but later learned it won the Viewers Choice award. Some quilters think that’s better than winning Best of Show 🙂. Her work is perfection; enjoy the closeups!

The back:

The next quilt was the first place winner in the traditional category:

This one won an award for machine quilting (and the piecing’s not shabby either!😊):

I really enjoyed the beauty and intricacy of the geometric design and use of color in this one and I’m a huge fan of circle designs:

The same quilter made the next quilt – hand pieced! as well as hand appliqued:

I very much enjoyed the hand quilting on this one:

Great appliqué on this one:

Marilyn Belford is known for her monumental pictorial quilts of mythical figures and this quilt is another in her series – a pretty amazing technical and artistic feat:

Last one for today’s post:

I’ve always liked Carol Grotrian’s work, especially her pictorials made with her own dyed/shibori fabrics and hand stitched.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these quilts – I still have many more to share in future posts. I’m currently binding The Inner Reaches of Outer Space and will save sharing it for my next post. Have a great weekend!

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

    OMG So many beautiful quilts in one place. After seeing the workmanship on these lovely quilts, I won’t complain about how difficult 4-square blocks are to make all points meet. Thank you for sharing. Truly works of art. Terry

      Glad you enjoyed the quilts! I think it’s important to be inspired, not intimidated by the beautiful quilts at shows.

    Thank you for the wonderful quilt show photos. I especially appreciate the close-ups. I agree, Janet Stone’s work is truly amazing. Hopefully she’ll show this new quilt at Road to California in January.

    Thank you for sharing your photographs of these amazing quilts. The one by Anne Grotrain is my favourite.

    such innovative and superbly executed quilts…not my style and certainly way beyond my skill set but they are lovely…

    • gladiporsche August 21, 2022 / 11:12 pm

      Thanks Grace!

    I did look at her website and was very inspired. Have bookmarked the site and will return to it.

    so many amazing quilts……….

    So many beautiful quilts in this post, but what’s fascinating to me is that some of these regional quilts will never make it out here to California — so, thank you for posting them so I can see them! I especially love the STEM quilt, as well as the last one (Rushes and Slow Ripples). Janet Stone’s quilts do make it out here, and I can’t wait to see this one. Thank you for showing these all to us!
