2012 Lake Metro Farmpark Quilt Show

Last night was the reception for the exhibitors and their guests at the 2012 Lake Metro Farmpark Quilt Show.  I invited my Mom Cindy, my Aunt Winnie and my sister Dawn is here from Florida.  It was great chance for them to enjoy something that is one of my great passions.

As soon as we walked in we spotted the Best of Show and Large General Pieced first place quilt, Amazon Star by Sue Wilson of Huron, Ohio.  This quilt was selected from the first place winners of all the categories


What an awesome quilt!!  This is a Judy Niemeyer pattern.  I have always loved Lone Star quilts and this may become a future project.  If I learn how to paper piece effectively.

Then we headed down the hallway heading for the reception.

In the hallway we found Jennifer McCann's entry Key Largo.


This wallhanging won a 3rd place in the Pictorial category.

After enjoying the wonderful food provided by J & J Catering of Kirtland, Ohio we went in search of my quilt!

I found Rebecca Silbaugh's award winning quilt Union Jack in the side room.


I have this pattern and will use it to make myself a scrap quilt.

I finally found my quilt Spinning Sampler just as you enter the room that holds the featured artists quilts, what an honor!


It's so cool seeing it hanging there with it's Red ribbon!!

I had Dawn take a picture of me with my quilt.


I hope everyone that attends the 2012 show has a great time experiencing all of this beautiful art!

Your quilt is gorgeous! Congrats on having it displayed in such a prominent location!

That Lone Star quilt is really pretty. Have you seen this tutorial? http://parkersnowefiberartblog.blogspot.com/2011/12/star-quilt-tutorial.html It's not exactly the same quilt but it doesn't require about paper piecing. I'm really interested in trying the tutorial as I think it's a beautiful pattern.

Thanks Cassandra!! I did look at the tutorial. When I make my next Lone Star it will be using strip piecing technique. You sew the strip sets together and then cut diamond segments from them. This helps to reduce sewing on the bias. Good luck and share pictures if you decide to use the tutorial.
