Indiana Heritage Quilt Show Quilts

Here are some of my favorite quilts from the 2013 Indiana Heritage Quilt Show held last week.  I didn't realize that the list that I had didn't list the names of all of the quilt makers.

1st place in Appliqued Bed Quilts called Fiesta Mexico by Renae Haddadin



This one is called Eureka and won 1st place in Pieced Bed Quilts


Rhapsody in Rose by Barbara Clem Exemplary Hand Quilting


America, Let It Shine by Sherry Reynolds won Best of Show Wall Quilt.


This one is Bonnie Hunter's quilt....can you tell by all the pieces?  It was gorgeous  The red one to the left was Becky Goldsmith's.


This one is called Spicy Pineapple by Gail Woodruff and won Honorable Mention


Another great pineapple...my apologies.  The photo is blurry and I can't zoom in on the name of the maker.



Lots of stitching done on this Kim McLean pattern.



This one is one of my favorites.  This pattern is in the Quilts from the Henry Ford Museum book by Fons and Porter.  I hope to make this one someday.......


This one is Best First Entry by Mary Olson.  The quilt is Acanthus with a Twist.


This one is by Mary Olson, too.  She does beautiful applique.





Tea with Miss D. by Sandra Leichner won 1st place in the Mixed Technique category.
 
Magic of the Rose by Kristin Vierra won Honorable Mention in the Appliqued Bed Quilt category. 


A Pink Rose Garden for Zoe made by Carol Schwankl.  The quilting on this one is just beautiful.  The pattern is Rose Sampler Supreme by Rosemary Makhan.  
 
There was a lot of inspiration at this show.  It would be really hard to choose a favorite.  I have a few more quilts to show you next time.

Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Gorgeous quilts! I especially love the pineapples. I keep telling myself I am going to make one and I have even purchased the pattern. It looks a lot like the one you show here that has the dark and light diagonal lines.

Thanks for sharing these show photos. Very inspirational. I don't do much applique but I do love what others do. The pineapples are pretty awesome, too!

You're right.....I can't pick a favorite! They are all so amazing! Thanks for sharing, and I can't wait to see more!

The "Eureka" quilt is by Marilyn Badger. I saw it and "Fiesta Mexixo" at the NJ Quilt Fest show in early March. Can you believe the crystals that were also on Ms. Badgers quilt?!? No wonder she always has a ribbon winner at the big shows!

I love all the applique quilts here and "Magic of the Rose" is really striking! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks LuAnn for the quilt tour. I loved the America, Let It Shine quilt. I think it is just stunning. Although my simple and frugal quilts will never win awards, I do so admire the quilters with the patience to make such stunning quilts.

blessings, jill
