Indiana Heritage Quilt Show

This past Saturday I attended the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show in Bloomington, Indiana.  Bloomington is about an hours drive from here, and this is really a nice show every year.  There are always several nationally known teachers that hold workshops/classes; and there are vendors and more vendors.  More on that later.

Most of the quilts from the show are on my webshots page.  After you click on the album you want to view, there is a slideshow option over on the right.  I may have missed one or two quilts, but I don't think I missed many.  Enjoy.

Here are a few of my favorites from the show:

The colors in this one were just gorgeous.  Quiltmaker Suzanne Marshall of Clayton, MO.
Here is a closer shot.  The flowers seemed to just pop off the background, and the hand quilting was wonderful!

This photo doesn't do justice to the quilt.  The applique' was just gorgeous.  The quiltmaker is Claudia Lash of Speedway, Indiana. 
This is from a pattern by Barb Adams and Alma Allen called Peppermint and Holly.  Quilt by Elvira Illig of Elgin, IL.
This one is by Carolyn Tully (can't read the city and state).  This one is striking in person. 
The colors in this one are gorgeous, and if you look at it the right way it creates an illusion of looking like an upside down bowl that is really pretty. This is by Ann Pigneri of Louisville, KY.   
This one was beautiful.  I love the red and green together.  Apologizes to the quiltmaker, but I didn't get the name on this one. 
This small cat quilt looked so realistic.
This is the Best of Show quilt by Mary Buvia of Greenwood, IN.  Her work is just gorgeous.  There is so much attention to detail in all of her quilts.  She was the featured artist at the show, and the first photos in my webshots album are of her quilts. 
Hope you enjoyed the show and are inspired by these gorgeous quilts.  Happy stitching today.

Thanks for sharing your shots of the quilt show. I always enjoy seeing what everyone has done. I'm lucky enough to live within driving distance to Paducah and am so looking forward to the show there in April.
