Indiana Heritage Quilt Show 2012

My friend Pam picked me up bright and early Saturday morning, and we headed south to Blooming, Indiana, to the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show.  It was a beautiful day weatherwise unlike the day before when all of the tornados struck the southern part of our state.

Here are some of my favorite quilts from the show:

This quilt is called Letter Carriers by Janet Stone, Overland Park, KS.  The ribbon is for Exemplary Machine Quilting.




This quilt won ribbons for both Exemplary Hand Quilting and 2nd place in the Applique' Bed Quilt category.  The maker is Betty Ekern-Suiter, Racine, AL.

Love the colors on this one...2nd place pieced wall quilt.  This quilt is by Birgit Schueller, Riegelsberg, Germany.


Love this scrappy log cabin quilt with a great border.  Quilt by Charlotte Alexander, English, IN.

This quilt is called Granny Squares.  Quilt by Jane Pitt, Bloomington, IN.

This quilt was just interesting to look at with all of the different block backgrounds and so many designs.  This quilt was made by Wendy Caton Reed of Bath, ME.


This Dear Jane was made by Miriam Bruening of Oregon, IL.  Love her border scallops.

Beautiful applique' on this one by Mary-Margaret Morton of Ann Arbor, MI.  The ribbon is for 3rd prize in Mixed and Special Techniques for Wall Quilts.

The electric blue color on this quilt just glowed.  This quilt won 1st place in the Applique' Wall Quilt category.  Quilt by Rachel Wetzler, St. Charles, IL.


This quilt by Klonda Holt of Lee's Summit, MO, won Honorable Mention in the Ensemble Wall Quilt Category.
