Shipshewana Quilt Show

I'm posting just a few pictures of the many I took on my trip to Shipshewana... these were just outstanding! There were so many well done quilts... such nice handwork. The one below is a dear jane... I've been wanting to start one of these for years. It's just another of 100's on my "someday" list.

This quilt should have had a blue ribbon but didn't and I really don't understand why. She made all those cute little quilts, really mini quilts, that are hanging in this quilt show quilt. The one next to the barn is a yoyo quilt with REAL yoyos... tini tiny ones! And the quilt with the scotty dogs are all VERY tiny scotties pieced or appliqued in. JUST AMAMZING!

This one had me with the hand quilting. The quilt is beautiful but the handquilting is so tiny and straight and CLOSE together.

And here's my favorite of the show (yes, it got some ribbons!). The quilting was PERFECT and so pretty... someone has a great eye for color.

There were many more but I'm trying to post this in a hurry (my computer is about to die and I'm running out of time). Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing the pics! I so wanted to attend this show... I had a quilt in it, but couldn't go. Nice to see others that were there.

You had a quilt in it?! Which one... I took so many pictures of beautiful quilts but just didn't have the time (or room) to put them all on. My daughter and I were just amazed at the talent displayed at this show.

Hi Deb Thanks for becoming one of my followers. Now I'm following you, too. I missed the Shipshe quilt show again this year, so I am glad to see photos. If you have them all in a photo album I would love to have the link. Great quilts! I go to a retreat there twice a year, and it is one of my favorite places to visit.

I've been slowly pushing myself back to quilting. My back pain gets terrible in the mid day so early morning is the best time to sew.  ...
