Quilt show Post #2

this is one of the beautiful prizewinning quilts at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival this week. this won in the traditional quilt category. wait until you see the close-ups of the machine work!

this next shot shows the detail of the machine work and quilting on the top, botom, and side borders.

look closely at the detail work on this flower! the machine quilting work in the outer green section is all done in back and forth 's' work quilting. it really fills in what would otherwise be an ordinary space.

Oh, these photos are wonderful! Maybe some year I'll plan a visit to my son in Virginia to coincide with the show! Thanks for such wonderful eye candy.
