Here are a few more quilts from the Winners’ Circle at the Shipshewana Quilt Festival. Not all of these won ribbons, but they were located in the car museum that also housed the Winner’s Circle.
There were two of these Gingerbread Village quilts. This one is by Patricia Welsh of Anderson, IN. It was quilted by Elaine Reed. The card said it was from an appliqué Block of the Month. I especially like the gingerbread wedding in the upper right corner!
This one is Best of Show. It is Garden Variety Sampler by Janet Stone of Overland Park, KS who also quilted it. It is an original design and part of her alphabet series. This is my favorite of all of her quilts I’ve ever seen.
This is Elegance by Elsie Campbell of Ponca City, OK and hand quilted by her. the card said it took 8 years to finish that hand quilting. It got a ribbon in the Mixed Media Large category, but no one could tell us how it was mixed media. Very stunning, though!
Here is a La Passacaglia called Math Quiz by Karen Weaver of Cleveland, OH. She also quilted it. I have to admit that every time I see one of these, my heart breaks because I know how much was trimmed off to make it rectangular.
And here is another by Elsie Campbell, this time machine quilted by Elsie herself. It is called Rainbow Star. I’m a fan!I will probably do one more post from this show within the next few days. Until then
