Pine Tree Quilt Guild 2015 Show

Yesterday was the final day of the Pine Tree Quilt Guild Show, the big state show in Maine.

I came off the windjammer J&E Riggin on Saturday and turned around by Sunday to get myself to Augusta to both see the show and to bring home our Coastal Quilters’ Challenge Quilts, which were hung in the show.  (You can see those quilts on the Coastalquiltersmaine1 blog if you like.

My favorite quilt in the show as a quilt made by our own Sarah Ann Smith–which did win a blue ribbon.  This winning quilt is a portrait of her son Eli, who is both a runner and a wrestler.  You can see this quilt and one of her oldest son Josh on her terrific web site:  www.sarahannsmith.  Click on gallery, and then people.  (Sarah is a nationally known quilter who teaches all over the country, including at Houston.  She is one talented woman.)

But, not having Sarah’s artistic talent and being a scrappy quilter, this quilt by Kathy Boudreau drew my attention and is still singing around my head:

Look at the use of the selvages!!!

Here’s some close-ups of the birds:
