Yesterday, I went with my daughter and mom to the Maine Quilt Show. Though there are always many different types of quilts, it seems that this year had more of the purely "geometric" offerings. The more traditional quilts were off in the Meet the Quilter area, but unfortunately I failed to take any pictures there. My mistake because they were gorgeous.
Anyhow, in an effort to keep my 5 year old happy for 3 hours, I gave her the $500 camera and let her take pictures until both batteries were dead. As a result, most of my show pictures are at a heavily skewed, upward angle. Some could be clearer, and most do not have the maker's information, which I typically note. I like to record that as I blog the picture if for no other reason than I hate to see one of my quilts in a blog without the proper name/crediting with it. My appologies...I have some of the names, just not all.
Here is one of my favorites, by Lisa Longstaff Hayden called Haley's Challenge. The tetrahedrals in this style quilt are something I have not seen. Being mathematical, I find this intriguing. It earned a red ribbon too.
This is Autumn Migration by Patricia Converse. Notice all the geese heading south? Very clever. It also earned a red ribbon.
It's not that she didn't try to take them...most are hard to get clear! The one below is for the quilt just above!
