Here are more photographs from the “Quilts on the Bayou” show at Jefferson this past weekend.  Having done an eight inch paper pieced block not nearly as complicated at the following quilt, I can truly appreciate the work put in the beautiful blue and white creation.

 Not to mention all that quilting - oh my!

I absolutely LOVE this braid border!!! I never would have thought to do this.  I made a braid table runner last year for my mother which you can see and read about here.

Here’s another paper-pieced marvel.  Not only that, the mitered blocks with stripe material and the variegated thread quilting were eye catching.  This photo does not capture the full impact of the quilting and design.

Appliqued roses with a trellis sashing in pretty shades of pink red and green.  Well done!

This quilt design was the 2009 Blocks of the Month design by Sue Garman for The Quilt Show.  And a winner of a ribbon.  We voted this one as our Fan Favorite.

Red and Yellow are a vibrant combo in this floral quilt.   It felt like the sun was shining indoors.

Simple, but elegant, split nine-patch.  The nine-patch has to be one of the most versatile blocks in the quilting world.

Last but not least, the tumbling blocks with an appliqued border.  Even more vibrant and dimensional in person.

Hope you enjoyed the quilt show photographs.  It's not a big show, but it had some quality entries.
