The Nature of Quilting, 2015 MVQG Show (part 1)

The Milford Valley Quilter's Guild Show, The Nature of Quilting was this weekend. It was not hard to spend all afternoon studying the quilts and being in awe of the amazing local talent. There was a variety of traditional and modern quilts, hand and machine quilted, beginners and experts. The member that I met were very friendly and helpful. I even scored a real bargain on a gently used rolling sewing machine carrier.

This is a sampling of my favorites, not necessarily which quilts won ribbons. 
This years Raffle Quilt, above, was designed by Cheryl O'Sullivan for the MVQG.

 These had to have been a labor of love. The first, Dear Jane created and hand quilted by Jane Kroener. The second, Enchanted Garden, each block individually designed by Jean Gannon and quilted by Nancy Wall.

 This American Valor quilt is by Linda Edwards and long arm quilted by Clara Ulmer, Twiltworks.

Butterfly Baby is a Jelly Roll Race quilt that was made as part of the MVQG National Quilt Day celebration by Cheryl O' Sullivan and quilted by Nancy Wall.

I studied Dreaming of Alaskan Glaciers for twenty minutes!
This very complicated quilted is by Debby Siccardi and was quilted on her domestic, sit down machine.
