Adel, IA, Little Sisters Quilt Show 2013

The weather this morning was perfect for a quilt show.  I did not get pictures of every quilt as some were hard to get the camera to.  I also had trouble with some of the names, but you will get to enjoy viewing many quilts.  They are in no particular order, but I did get to vote for my three favorite.  And it was hard.

In addition to seeing awesome quilts, I also picked up a new name for long arm work.  That is always helpful!

It is hard to see the dimension of Debra’s quilt.  The flowers are folded and have a bead in each center.  It earned BEST OF SHOW!

I should also mention that I did take pictures of some of the names to get them recorded, but I still might not be spelling them correctly.  I might have to do some editing.

The hardest part of  a mystery quilt is selecting the fabric.  Good job, Jackie!

Joyce Steind did a better job with this pattern than I did.

The choice of fabric is everything.  I think more important than the pattern.  Some simple patterns turn out so striking.
