More From the International Quilt Show

Here we go with some more of my favorite quilts from the International Quilt Show.

“Seeking Balance” was made by Karen Eckmeier from Connecticut.  Karen won second place in the Art-Abstract category.

The details in this piece were what attracted me to it.  To see more of Karen’s work visit

“The Hues of Amber” was made by Karlyn Bue Lohrenz from Montana.  I love the soothing feeling of a monochromatic quilt.

“O Happy Day” made by Timna Tarr from Massachusetts won second place in the Art-Abstract category.  You know how attracted to circles I am so this quilt caught my eye.  Basic shapes and excellent use of color placement can make one incredible quilt.

“Life in the City” was made by Sheila Frampton-Cooper from California.  Sheila won an honorable mention in the Art-Abstract large category.  (I’m sorry the lower left corner is cut off by the signage but they frown upon me moving the signs!).  For more information about Sheila checkout her site

“Collaboration” by Keiko Yamada from Japan blew me away.  The intricacy of the piecing was amazing.  I am so sorry the close-up shots I took of this piece did not turn out.  If I read the information correctly this quilt was made entirely by hand!  Impressive.  This quilt won first place in the Innovative Pieced category.


“Sunlit Circles” was made by Ann Peterson from Colorado.  Ann won third place in Innovative Pieced.

When you look at this close-up shot you can she why this quilt won a ribbon…excellent workmanship and attention to detail.

What’s not to like about “Friends of Baltimore”?  This quilt was made by Susan Garman, Jerrianne Evans, Pat Cotter, Marsha Fuller and Georgann Winkle from Texas. The amount of work in this quilt is simply amazing!


The quilt won first place in the Group Quilt category.

The workmanship on this quilt was phenomenal.  To find out more about Susan visit her at

That’s all for this week.  Enjoy your holiday preparations.
