Quilting Details

I apologize for the fuzzy picture...I was in a hurry in the crowds. This is an example of Sharon Schamber's quilting - microscopic perfection! She uses so many different shapes: clamshells, miniature feathers, pebbles, straight lines, etc. You can also see her innovative scalloped binding. Some more wonderful feathers. The quilt is a basic two-color pattern, but looking at the details on the back is breath-taking. (Pieced by Linda Adkins, quilted by Judy Taylor if I remember correctly)
Detail of Gina Perkes' Best of Show quilt. She does the same microscopic background fill as Sharon Schamber.
Gina Perkes also won the Wearable category. Beautiful work!
I loved the feathers on this Burgoyne Surrounded quilt...but I didn't get the name of the quilter.

Love the Burgoyne Surrounded. That is on my long list... To say my husband is a history buff is putting it mildly.
