Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City Quilt Show - Part 2 of 2

Yesterday I posted the first half of the photos I took at the Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City Quilt Show at Crown Center. This is the second half. Enjoy!

If These Shirts Could Talk
Quiltmaker: Rosemary Cromer
Quilted by: Mary Hibbs

Red Rooster
Quiltmaker: Janie Wagner
Quilted by: Janie Wagner
Owner: Janie Wagner
Techniques: Machine pieced, machine quilted
I thought this one was really cool. It looks so simple. Why didn't I ever think of this?


Don't you love it when they give you gloves at a quilt show? I hate when they don't because I have to walk around with my hands in my pockets just so I won't accidentally touch something I'm not supposed to. I love the feel of fabric, so pockets or gloves are a must. I just can't help myself.

Sunny Spanish Sky

Quilted by: Countryside Quilting

The quilting on this was amazing.

Civil War Stars
Quiltmaker: Mary Ellen Bloomquist
Quilted by: Nedra Forbes
Owner: Mary Ellen Bloomquist
Techniques: Machine pieced, hand appliqued, machine quilted

I love the quilting on this quilt.
I think my favorite part of the whole thing is this applique on the border.

Truly Nancy #2
Quiltmaker: Nancy Wakefield
Quilted by: Ross Williams
Owner: Nancy Wakefield
Techniques: Machine pieced, machine quilted
I love this one. I love the simplicity of it. I love scrappy quilts that don't have an overall theme. They seem like they have more of a necessity to them than a specific statement. Somehow, no matter what fabrics are put together, they seem to work.

Red and White Triangles
Quiltmaker: Holly Benson
Quilted by: Holly Benson
Owner: Holly Benson
Techniques: Machine pieced, hand quilted


Unfortunately I only took a few photos of this quilt. It was fabulous. It was solid red and white fabrics on the front and I loved the back fabric. It matched beautifully. It was heavily hand quilted. Gorgeous! Sorry about the lack of overall photo on this one. At least you can get a sneak peek.

Chocolate Block of the Month
Quiltmaker: Naida McKee
Quilted by: Naida McKee
Owner: Naida McKee
Techniques: Machine pieced, machine quilted

I thought the colors on this were interesting. I don't think I would have ever come up with these fabrics together, but I dig them.
I love the back on this one. See why I love when they give me gloves? I get to discover really cool things like this.

Cabins Under the Stars
Quiltmaker: Clara Diaz
Quilted by: Clara Diaz
Owner: Clara Diaz
Techniques: Machine pieced, machine quilted
I love the border on this. I need to start doing more of them this way.

My Funky Rail Fence
Quiltmaker: Joan Pickens

I love black and white with a bit of red. It's quite possibly my favorite color combination.

There's No Place Like Home
Quiltmaker: Virginia Paul
Quilted by: Virginia Paul
Owner: Virginia Paul
Techniques: Machine pieced, machine quilted


I loved seeing this one. If you remember, the theme for my row robin quilt swap is the Wizard of Oz. I can't wait to get it back and see how it turned out.

Furrowed Fields

Quilted by: Rosemary Cromer

This was made of old shirts. I liked how they didn't cut out the pockets or sleeve buttons.
