Finishing Up at Quiltfest

For the last two weeks I have written about some of the special exhibits at Quiltfest in Lancaster.  For this last post on the show I thought I would concentrate on the displayed quilts not part of any special challenge or special exhibit.

This quilt is what I would consider a medallion quilt because it has a center block surrounded by many borders.

This quilt just reminds me of Fall with its leaves and colors.

q4

I happen to like the color blue and I like flowers.

q8

This one is a popular star pattern.

q6

If you like bright colors then this quilt is for you.

Of course you know I can’t pass up a cat quilt.  Here are two quite different quilts.  I was interested in the first one because years ago Kathy and I went to MOMA where they had a special exhibit of Mondrian’s work.  If you like film noir you might get a kick out of the second one.

If you like classic literature how about this one celebrating Alice in Wonderland?

To bring this post to a close here is a quilt depicting the four seasons.

And just in case you can’t make out the critters in the log here is a close up.

  1. I always love looking at your quilt pictures, Bob. They are amazing!

  2. Sorry to see it end. These did not disappoint. I enjoyed the many unique designs, but I still love the traditional best of all!

    • I agree. The traditional ones are my favorites as well. There are some local quilt shows as well as national ones this summer so there will be more quilt pics in the not too distant future.

  3. Me three on the traditional quilts!

    • I think the thing is that I could cozy up with a traditional quilt whereas I would have to look at the others as works of art (not that traditional ones aren’t works of art.)

    I have enjoyed looking at the quilts. Admirable art and craft.
