Lake Farm Park Quilts 2015 Part 2

Part two of my day at Lake Farm Park Quilts 2015...and Happy St. Patrick's Day!  I don't have any green finishes to share but I did pull a quilt off the frame today.  I have quite a bit more work to finish up this evening though so I'll save photos for another post.

I'll start with another of my favorites from the show - and boy oh boy was this one beautiful.  The pictures don't do it justice.  It was in the perfect lighting to show off all of the sparkle and bling...

This one is just so pretty and full of interest - I love looking at it.  My favorite part is the the hot air balloon...inside are the maker's three grandchildren.  I mean - what a treasure!

I just think that makes the whole quilt.  :)  I tried to get lots of close ups of all the embellishing on this one.  It's pretty incredible.

Now this one below is just so pretty!  In addition to quilting I also really love gardening...so this was right up my alley.

It looks like each flower was painted then embroidered over....well, she even says it in the description!  I don't know if I ever would have thought to do something like this.  I love it!


I also really loved these feathers that look kind of like leaves - with pebbling in the spine.  They are so pretty and work so well with this quilt.

My favorite part was the trellis...so cute!

You can guess that this next one was my absolute favorite of the show.  Not only is it a dahlia, but the quilting is SO beautiful!

The absolute best part is this outer border...it's just so perfect!

Deservingly so it won best machine quilting in addition to a blue ribbon in its category.  Such a gorgeous quilt.  I am also smitten with the use of blue thread on white fabric!  Does that remind anyone of a quilt I might be working on currently?  With blue on black fabric?!  LOL

I think I have enough photos for one more post...I'll shoot for tomorrow!  :)
