The event is held at a indoor stadium so it is great to take photos of the whole show from above. There were 30 something vendors situated in the center and quilts were displayed around the outside and one display hanging on the pipe and drapes behind the vendors booths. This photo was taken right before the show opened.
Falk from Nebraska City, NE. She does wonderful piecing, hand and machine quilting. I would say that most of her quilts are original designs or her own variations of traditional patterns. Carol has won numerous awards on her quilts. She is pictured with her quilt "Ocean Drift".
This is a detail photo of another of her quilts "Prairie Sky Diamonds".Minden, Nebraska. Her quilts are wonderful pieces of art. She constructs the base of her quilts of hexagons then appliques, does embroidery, hand quilts and beads them. The quilts are all hand done, exquisite! She has started matting and framing some of her quilts now too. Molly is standing in front of "Pink Roses" and "Kitty on a Rug". Look for Molly's quilts in gallery showings around the country as she has done many and will probably be invited to have many more showings.
The detail is of Paulette's quilt "White Poinsettias"
Another featured quilter this year was Stella Schaffert of Marquette, Nebraska. Stella does a variety of styles and types of quilts. She wins awards at the fairs and has taught quilting classes around the state. On the left is Stella's quilt "Country Memories" and on the right is "Starry Path".

Mary Sue Suit of Sydney, Nebraska was unable to attend the show but we are so glad her quilts made it. She does a variety of quilts and has hand and machine quilted them. She has won awards on her quilts many times. The one pictured below is "Star Bright".
This is a detail of Mary's quilt "Lazy Daisy".
Since it is a rainy day today we are not harvesting so John is playing catch up with other things and I get to spend the day in my sewing room. YeeHa!
