Let’s see some of those wonderful antique quilts!

The Inland Northwest Machine Quilters (INMQ) had a wholecloth machine quilting challenge.  Many of those quilts were entered into the quilt show.

This is Jean Shute’s wholecloth design.  Isn’t it fabulous?!

WSQ October 2013

I know a lot of you are very interested in machine quilting, so enjoy and be inspired!

I love basket quilts (okay…I love most any kind of quilt)!

WSQ October 2013

The detail that I noticed in this quilt is the intricate sawtooth sashing.  Cool!

Look at the pieced background in this next quilt!  And the light shining on our star figure skater!

The next quilt has a great tactile quality to it.  I wanted to touch it, but I didn’t.

Don’t you just love the scalloped border?  What a lovely way to finish off this floral beauty.

I admit, I was drawn by the striking red and white of the next quilt.  I wish I had paid more attention to how it was made.  It could’ve been done with reverse applique, or perhaps by paper cutting (also known as Scherenschnitte).  Or with fusible web.  There are many ways to applique.  In any case, I love it!

Lou Carver created this wonderful memory book commemorating Dr. Latham, Spokane’s pioneer female doctor.  Way cool!

There was not a lot of wearable art at this year’s quilt show, but I have a jacket to show you.

Love those pintuck sleeves!

This is a gorgeous quilt created by Patricia Pressler, called ‘Daisy’s Joy’.  I had a photo of the complete quilt, but my photo editing program ate it (as it has several other photos from the quilt show).  Nevertheless, I do have wonderful detail photos for you to see.

WSQ October 2013

The detail in the machine embroidery and quilting is fabulous!

Fun rick rack trim is included in the borders!

Prairie points and piping too!

One last look at an embroidered floral motif and the machine quilting.

WSQ October 2013

Most of you can recognize ‘Rosie’, an American icon!  Again, I had a photo of the entire quilt, but, alas, it is lost.  I do know that this quilt was designed and made by Marlene Oddie.  (Check out the link; you’ll see the quilt and read about the making of it.)  The center poster, shown here, is available at Spoonflower.

What makes the next quilt so interesting?

WSQ October 2013

It is the dimension, embroidery, quilting and the cut out sections in the center.

WSQ October 2013

Another colorful, scrappy string-pieced beauty! And who doesn’t like the cute little volkswagon!

WSQ October 2013

Last, but not least, a sweet quilt that makes me want to head for the beach!
