Owensboro Area Quilt Show 2010--Installment 1

I had the opportunity to go to the Owensboro Area Quilt Guild Show held at the Owensboro Science Museum in downtown Owensboro, KY. I took some pictures to share with you. I’ll be posting them over a few days, so…here is today’s virtual show…

I would like to say that I have posted all the information that was available about each quilt. There were no "stories" about the quilts, and there was no information about whether the quilt was original or from a published/purchased pattern. The actual pattern names were not listed unless that is the title the maker gave their quilt.

This first quilt is called “Running on the Sahara,” and it was made by Donna Wirthwein. It was quilted by Pam Mayo.
The next quilt is a cute seasonal quilt. I believe there is a pumpkin block for every month. It is called “Great Pumpkins” and was made by Guinn Trogden. It was quilted by Terry Russelburg.
“Walking in a Winter Wonderland” is a redwork quilt made and hand embroidered by Lisa Barnhard. It was quilted by Pam Mayo.
“Stars and Strips” was made by Nina Sue Davis and quilted by Gerald R. Davis. This quilt is hand quilted.
This quilt is called “Patriotic Quilt” and was made by Jack Meyers. It was quilted by Eve Lacefield. All fifty states along with the state flower, state bird, state name, and the year it became a state are hand embroidered on this quilt. The blocks are numbered with the order each state became a state. You can see the number “554” (backwards) on the Louisiana block in the close-up shot. I’m wondering if some type of feedsack material might have been used for the background of the blocks. The lines dividing each block are made with a hand couched line of stitching.

“Harvest Time” was made by Amanda Harvey and quilted by Terry Russelburg.
Stay tuned for more pictures from the show.

It's so nice to see our quilt show on your blog! Thank you for your sweet comments about our quilts.

I want to let you know that it's time for another quilt show! It will be Friday June 22 from 9-5 and Saturday June 23 from 9-4 at Brescia University.
